So… can I confidenly walk up to my handsome male friends and say:
Eish! Laaitie lekker.
Thanks for any and all input on how to hit on people on the worst way possible.
As for Brazilian slangs, more specifically “paulistano” slangs (AKA from the city of São Paulo), I love calling everyone “brother” and “sister”. We don’t say that with the religious undertone you’d find elsewhere, but more as a brotherhood sorta thing.
“Irmão” for dudes and “irmã” ou “mana” for chicks.
I also like saying “fita” (tape) to refer to anything, “pico” (peak) to refer to any place, “desenrolar” (untangle) to talk about getting stuff done (like meeting up or going on a date) and “enconstar” (lean on) to ask people to show up on any given place at any given time.
“Irmão, qual a fita que ‘cê’ vai resolver naquele pico lá? Desenrola isso aí rapidão pra enconstar lá no bar com a gente.”
(Brother, what are you gonna do do at that place? Get that underway quickly so you can catch up with us at the bar.)
