Not real sure how it's spelled, but would like a definition for it. It's chapparita or chaparrita.
slang for short. Used for short females. A pet name for a short woman or short girl, "shorty." Usually used as a pet name within a Mexican family as a sign of affection for a little girl.
We actually have a member here known as Chaparrito. Ironically, he claims to be tall.
By the way, where have you been Chaparitto? We miss you!
Exactly Nicole, Chaparrito seems to have disappeared. I opened a thread about that but, unluckily, it didn't arouse much interest :( Where is Maestro??
Are some timestamps incorrect or is this question actually two years old?
I just now noticed that the original question and followup response from juanita are much older than any of the answers given. Odd.
