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

Cholo Word Of The Day - Relajo

Relajo can mean several different things. It can be used as part of a phrase or stand alone.

Word:
Relajo, Es un Relajo, Que Relajo

Meaning According To DT:
screw up, he's a screw up (also he doesn't really care, takes it easy), what a drag

Used in a sentence:
"Chano, el Tomy es bien relajo, le vale maiz que no tiene job."

"Si Borrado, eso es cierto. Por eso lo mandaron a volar la wila (sp?)."

Translation according to DT:
"Feliciano, Tomas is kind of a screw up, it doesn't really bother him that he doesn't have a job."

"Yes Hazel eyes, that's true. That's why they kicked him out of his house."

I would have used chamba instead of job in this sentence "Chano, el Tomy es bien relajo, le vale maiz que no tiene job."

I know this is way off the subject, but..
Question...does your family have all kinds of crazy nicknames? For example:
Kakito...cause he looked like a little turd when he was born...
Mato..cause he looked like a tomato.
Cuata...cause she was a twin..
so on and so forth? Cause in my family..that's the way it is. Please tell me I'm not alone here..

"le vale maiz"?

I've heard le vale madre. And le vale pito.

But maiz is totally new for me.
