    Unhappy Help me.. Very urgent

    I tried using google translate.. But something was missing.. Please help me
    This was told by a best friend in an SMS but in Spanish

    "jajaja naveen jaja tranquilo que nunca me insultaste y si no te hablaba era porque no estaba tranquilo =)"

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE

    I guess something is still missing, but I get: Ha, ha – Naveen, I'm not upset that you never insulted me, and if I wasn’t talking, it's because I WAS upset.

    Learned another new usage. I guess tranquilo here is short for sea tranquilo.

    Not sea tranquilo but rather estése tranquilo or quédese tranquilo...be cool, do not stress yourself, don't worry too much, don't get upset...

    Thanks a lot gerrnt and cotty.. I got it.
    Out of my little knowledge in Spanish .. I'd like to ask something of which I'm not exactly sure.
    You guys have used 'si' as if .. But 'si' = yes right??( that's what my friend says.. I add she is a Colombian )

    Since there is no punctuation in the original, the translation could also be:

    "Jajaja Naveen jaja--- tranquilo. Que nunca me insultaste y si no te hablaba era porque no estaba. Tranquilo =)"

    or

    Ha ha Naveen, take it easy! You never insulted me and if I didn't talk to you it's because I wasn't there. Don't worry!
