It looks the same, but it’s not. It’s one thing to tell you he’s a jerk, another very It ‘sdifferent to be called a duper. A fool is acceptable, he’s even sympathetic, affectionate. “Oh, you’re a boludoooo,” they can tell us without being offended. Even ourselves can say, “What a boldface I am!” When we’re wrong, we forget something or screw up. Boludo does.

But with the ball-headed things They change. No one says with love to a friend: “You little ball, you don’t know what happened to me. yesterday.” Mmm, no. It’s not the same thing. “You’re a duper” sounds loud, sounds like challenge, provocation. If we play the ball, it’s because we know that the other He’s right.

Pelotudo is, perhaps, the most commonly used word to define the one who broke your friend’s heart (especially if your friend is a repeat offender). Skinny’s a ballboy, there’s no other. He loses it, for a duper. If it’s the woman who misbehaves, the terms change, but that’s already the subject for a separate note.

No, it’s not.
