Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Una Barrida

Barrida Posted by Hello
My grandmother still gets Barridas. She got scared when she saw a hose and thought it was a snake. The next day she felt sick. The day after - she got a barrida. I'm hiding while taking the picture, because once again, she'd kill me. You can't see them, but my Aunt and mom are off to the sides shaking their heads. They obviously don't believe in Barridas, even though my mom did get herself cured of Susto the other day.

It took me a while, but I finally found a page on barridas that didn't have to do with the tango.


Is this done by a friend or family member, or a "specialist"?. Just curious... I enjoy reading your blog.

I was looking up barridas and found this blog. It cracked me up. It's like something your travieso Mexican cousin would do. Great post.
