I guess dad has gone further back to the days of REAL unfiltered Spanish cursing when he and his brothers would fight, I’m guessing.

Lately, he’s been saying this word very frequently: “Baboso”

As a kid, I thought the word “baboso” was a snail or something.  And if you search for the definition in translation, it is “slimy” or “slobbery”.

Dad:

“Pinche viejo BABOSO!” >>translate>>  “F***en old slimy!”  or “F***en old idiot!”

Dad:

“Pinche estupido BABOSO!” >> translate>> “F***en stupid slimy!” or “F***en stupid idiot!”

It’s very entertaining.  And cute.

I always thought my temper came from Mama…..now I know the cursing comes from Papa.

Hello Zetta. He is funny. This evening he yelled out “Baboso!” like 3 times. He appeared to be having fun. He’s been saying that word for about 3 to 4 weeks now...very interesting. 

I haven’t heard him say that word so often since I was a kid.  And these last 3 years he hasn’t said that word at all.  Interesting how the brain functions.
