Ways to say I'm just kidding....
Ok, so I know how to say it just kidding in spanish. But I think this is probably one of the most popular questions I get all the time. "How do you do say, ' I'm just kidding in spanish.' '' Soooo, the way I say it is, "estoy jugando", which literally translated is I'm playing, but of course in context most understand it as i'm kidding. BUT, what I would like to know is, who knows other ways to say "I'm kidding" in spanish. I think this will be an interesting thread with some cool responses.
to kid sb (ABOUT sth) tomarle el pelo a algn (con algo); he’s just kidding you on o along o (AmE also) around- te está tomando el pelo
b (deceive) engañar; who do you think you’re kidding?- ¿a quién te crees que estás engañando?;
you can’t kid me it was just an oversight- a mí no me vas a hacer creer que se te pasó por alto;
you’re kidding yourself if …- te engañas si …;
don’t kid yourself! ¡no te hagas ilusiones!; stop kidding yourself!- ¡desengáñate!, ¡abre los ojos!
The first thought I had was what Nila said: Estoy bromeando.
But, thanks, DJ, it's great to know other expressions. I'll remember "estoy jugando" (goes into the mental file cabinet).
I like how this is going, keep 'em coming. I've never heard "broma" and "bromeando", where's that from?
