What’s the Word: Borracho

By Lucasryden @saborkitchen

Because your knife isn’t the only thing that needs sharpening.

Language is a fickle mistress, carefully picking and choosing which words can translate from one dialect to another.  But if there’s one idea that transcends every language, culture, and society, it’s probably the age-old tradition of excessive drinking.

This typically leads one to become drunk, or borracho in Spanish.  The term can be used as an adjective to describe your lightweight friends or a noun to label that poor homeless dude on the corner.  Offensive?  Yes.  But hey, that’s what language is for.
