Re: [esperanza] Is it futile?

When I occasionally get together with buddies I used to work with, the conversation gets faster as the tequila bottle gets emptier. Slang and others are different by location, but they all seem to understand stuff from DF, other cities/regions or el campo even though they are all different.

If something flies by me, I just tell them I didn't get it, and they explain it, and end up laughing again, And they understand that I will probably never understand most of their albures.

There is a Mexican slang list dictionary available, not always accurate, but better than nothing. You can find it by using Google search terms Mexican slang Mexico Guru. Good for learning but be wary of opening your mouth and using anything from there in a group setting. Contexts are not provided but a good friend who won't be offended by your attempts can tell you if you use them correctly.
