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 - Escamar

Escamar can be used in several different ways. I'll try to remember all of the phrases which and context in which I've used it.

Escamar, No te Escames, Se Escamo, Te Escamaste, Se va Escamar

Meaning According To DT:
freak out, get scared, worry

Used in a sentence:
"Lore, viste como se escamo el Tony cuando se dio cuenta que iba tener un chavalio."

"Clarinches Poncho, ahora si va tener que chambiar mas."

Translation according to DT:
"Lawrence, did you see how Antone was a tad bit concerned when he learned he was having a child."

"Of course Alfonse, no he's really going to have to bear down and apply himself more at his occupation."

Update: Sometimes we would sneak up on someone and say, "Pssst, no te escamas," when they flinched. Similar to a "Psyche!"
