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.

Word:
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!"
