She doesn’t want anymore Lola.
Before I started writing these columns I knew that the origin of everyday expressions is a topic I love. But now, after reading and reading and reading, I can say that it is a subject that I am passionate about. It is impressive how much we can learn from investigating the variations that our language has over time, its mutations, its subtleties (for example, that “Lola” was not a person). Am I a nerd? It may be! Welcome to the world of diachronic linguistics!
He doesn’t want any more. Lola
Lola was a “natural” cookie, which was considered to be very healthy. That’s why he integrated the diet of any hospital in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. By that, when someone was about to die (or, even, there was already deceased), among doctors and nurses said “the one in bed 20 did not wants more Lola.” Today it is used for those who are not more interested in a situation or who does not want to insist on an unattainable enterprise.

Then, among Andalusians, it was very common to say “Segura was taken prisoner” when they taught their children not to steal or lie. The Andalusians who emigrated to our country continued to use the phrase, but since in our lands the reference was lost, over time “Segura” became “safe” and went from meaning a specific geographical space to become a way of saying that there is never anything insured.
Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
