    Default ¿Avispao?

    No diga cuántos tiene, no preste lo que tenga, no cuente cuánto gana, no crea lo que oiga, no se haga el 'avispao', coma callao.

    ¿Qué significan las dos últimas frases?

    No se haga el avispao (pronunciación regional de "avispado") >> avispado = despierto, agudo, vivo (smart, clever)
    Coma callao (pronunciación regional de "callado") >> callado = en silencio (quiet)

    Yes, avispao is someone who thinks is more clever than everybody else.

    Coma callao roughly means not to tell, broadcast, or even brag about something you are doing.

    Now that I've been told, it seems obvious. But I never would have figured it out on my own. Thank you.

    Es usted muy amable, Cotty. Cuando la vida está totalmente volada, no es posible hacer todo. Recibo mi ración de español todos los días de clientes y por enseñar ESL. Pero reviso el foro y aprendo muchas frases interesantes,
