That's an awful big word for the fags in here to understand. ;-)
Is it weird that I read all your posts in Clint Eastwood's voice?


The way it should be. ;-D

One thing about the Spanish language, the slang can have very different meanings from one region to the next. I've experienced this first hand a number of times, so asking a bunch of bilingual American kids for the proper translation isn't a solid way to gauge intent. Another example is "mano". Some regions view that as slang for brother while others view it as hand, or even hired hand, maybe even a person beneath you type of thing.
I've used mericon before and like many other words in all languages, it depends upon intent.
