Because we are Argentines, we find it difficult to make ends meet, we live day by day. We put all the grip on it to go through economic crises and look at them in a positive way.Because we know how to adapt to all circumstances by putting them humour and cool . In Córdoba, the time of the end of the month is the explosion of creativity. Because it inspires us to find a way to make the moment when we have to express that we have no money less uncomfortable. In fact, this critical moment that we suffer becomes something funnywhen we put it in a Cordovan tune .
Toy tirao or toy will is the expression we use to say that we are very close to the end of the month. According to the popular glossary , this expression means “(pop.) Lacking money, walking in misery or poverty.”
Another meaning of this expression is to walk without work, without chores and be half-lazy .Which would also mean not having a handle.
This saying is very famous and the one that makes those who listen to it laugh the most. The expression “I'm dry” is popular throughout Argentina . However, in Córdoba, as always, we put chimichurri in it. We add a stamp that says “original from the province of the fernet and the quartet”.Because we like to use creativity to transform everything that is given . In this case, we add the “crispy toy” ahead . And there was a cuckoo pee.
Just like that. Sometimes the end of the month hits hard and we really don't have a coin or we don't have a handle .So, simple like that, with our phrases we reflect the reality that concerns us.If they invite us to eat a roast, we can answer with the phrase : “I have no coin, brother .”
When the end of the month situation extends for a long time, we take the courage to ask our loved ones for help . Whether it's economical or taking part in the vaquitas, but without paying. If you get together with your friends and everyone puts money, you don 't eat from above, it's because you 're a bigornia.
A bigornia is a person who plays the bill , smokes your cigarettes and never has what it takes , so they ask you to. Bigornia aren't bad, they're just pedigüeños ... and, if the Cordobes are short of scruples , bigornia can't tell you.
This is what we say in Cordoba to people who are stingy, selfish or pijoteras.The most widely known national term for these personalities is “rat” . But here we modified it a little to give it the Cordovan trademark . Another way we like to address these kinds of beings is by calling them “coluda rat”. To emphasize and exaggerate as much as possible.
It is the preferred verb of l os laucha and bigornia . It means asking in disguise, like the one who doesn't want the thing, what you need, you can screw money to your old people, your friend's money, food from above. Actually, you're supposed to borrow when you hoist , so you should return it sometime. However, in Córdoba we do “ God pay” or “give it back to you”.
A cara e'pesho is the expression we use when we go from faces and hose a cara e'pesho. Directly unscrupulous and without taking into account the economy or the reality of the other . But above all, we don't care much what others think.
