Cholo Word Of The Day - Grifo
This is one of the words which I've used since I was a kid. I guess it's unfortunate that as a kid I knew or would see people who were"grifos." While working as a reporter in Laredo, I worked with many locals, who had a very colorful vocabulary and whom enjoyed smoking illegal substances once in a while, so the term was very widely used.
Meaning According To DT: high, stoned
Used in a sentence:
"Memo, viste como se puso Chema en el party? Andaba bien grifo."
"Nombre, Fito, se le fueron las cabras, y no sabia en donde andabe, where he was going, or even where he lived."
Translation according to DT:
"William, did you see Joe's actions at the party? He was using mind altering drugs."
"No way, Fito, he was acting weird, and didn't no where was, where he was going, or even where he lived."
