Another spanish saying and proverb 73
27 June 2017 @ 14:42

      Today, I would like to talk to you about a very popular expression in Spain: “¡Apaga y vámonos!” = "Turn it off and let's go!".

      It is said that this phrase was born of the argument, raised among two clerics, aspirants to the same chaplaincy, about which of them could say the Mass in less time.

      And, as they put themselves to it, one would come to say, without further ado, the final rubric formula: "ite, misa est", the other one, without thinking about it, turned to his altar boy and finished: "Turn off and let's go!".

      Since then, that phrase has become an expression of the absurd and ludicrous or, alternatively, a sign of radical discouragement. For example: "I saw him so out of his mind, that I said: Turn off and let us go".But other times, it is used to say for example: "If he has clear his decision, turn off and let us go".

      Well, I hope that you have liked this saying.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
