    That's the first time I hear that one, Amayo. Can't help you there.

    Amayo, have you ever heard this expression:

    ANDAR CON LOS CABLES PELADOS: Con el carácter muy irascible, de mal genio y muy susceptible ante cualquier palabra o acción ajena.

    Mi abuela solía decir: "hoy tenes una luna", quizás tenga que ver con la astrología, honestamente no lo sé.

    Ah tengo un amigo de La Pampa que suele decir "La luna que tengo" o "Me aluné" en referencia a que anda enojado con algo.

    "la pucha" adds an emphasis to the phrase.
    La pucha que vale la pena estar vivo!

    I have never heard this phrase. However, I imagine that if someone said it I would understand it as "I can't believe it" meaning that on top of all the other things that happened to me today or this week , this month, etc, *this* is also happening.

    "La pucha" is a (somewhat) elegant way to hint at a very old profession. It's a bit like saying "Qué míercoles te pasa?"... Not sure if that's clear :P
