"cute"


Whenever my Puerto Rican grandmother thought I was doing something cute as a kid, she would say, "¡Ay, qué lindo!" Today's SpanishDictionary.com word substitutes the versatile word "mono," as in "¡Qué mono!" Has anyone heard any other variations?

Chulo?


I had a friend with a pup named Chulo, which she said meant "Cute"



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Chulo is another versatile word. WordReference.com shows it meaning a variety of things, from brazen to cute.

Which in some dialects also means "pimp". :smug:
