Dicho: Abarca Too Much? Big Problema.

OK, so today’s Dicho stars my father, who despite having a cold I gave him during the holidays, let me film him in a series of dichos that will appear on the Tiki Tiki.

Today’s dicho: “Quien Mucho Abarca, Poco Atraca.”

I also found it as: “Quien Mucho Abarca, Poco Aprieta.”

I found various meanings, including the “Jack of All Trades, Master of None” and “Don’t Bite off More than You Can Chew.”

I interpret it as not being so gluttonous, greedy.

You?

Share, por favor!

Love your dad! What a good sport. ;)
En México también tenemos ese dicho como “el que mucho abarca, poco aprieta”… oh never mind, you already put it up there. Ha!
My dad used to teach us that dicho on the beach, trying to grab a handful of sand and having it all slip away. Ay gracias a los sabios papás!
Have a great day!
