Some of the examples i've heard:
- Puche los breques - push the brakes
- Guacha el carro - wash the car
- Va a la groceria - go to the grocery store
My Spanish professor from Spain is particularly amused at "Groceria"
Communication is not just words, communication is...architecture
because of course it is quite obvious that the house that would be built
without that desire, that desire to communicate, would not look as your
house does today.
