Today’s Dicho: Live Large (Video)

Live Large. La comida at El Palacio de Los Jugos.

This video I shot at El Palacio de los Jugos of Marta’s hilarious and charming cousin riffing on living large in Miami made me go searching for an appropriate dicho.

I think this one fits wonderfully: “A comer, beber, bailar y gozar, que el mundo se va acabar.”

Basically, it’s the Spanish version of “Eat, drink and be merry because tomorrow we die.”

It works. A reminder that you’d better eat all the cuatro leches cake you wish to ’cause all you’ve got is today. Or, maybe not?

Or, how about this one: “De esta vida nada sacaras, solo panza llena y nada mas.” (Translation: All you’re getting out of this life, Buddy, is a full belly and nothing more…”

Live a big life today, gente.

Share, por favor!
