Translation please - "two old women"
I think I have put my foot in it (again).
I wrote to a spanish speaking friend. What I intended to say was "We are two more mature ladies"
What I actually said, apparently, was "We are two very old women".
This was definately not what I intended to say!
So before I write again, I need a spanish word or phrase that means "two vivacious, attractive, intelligent and lively ladies who are perhaps a little past their teenage years".
I've heard my American friends use the phrase "golden girls" in this context. Can anyone suggest a similar spanish phrase that would get me out of trouble here?
She is from Peru
Hmmm, I would go for:
somos dos señoras adultas, algo pasadas "de fecha"...pero muy divertidas.
This is a funny term, you can also use:
somos dos señoras adultas, ya no jovencitas, pero muy divertidas y con ganas de vivir
First, I love your question!
Secondly, I don't know the answer, but I would try "dama" instead of "mujer", as a start...
one thing that would help is knowing which country you're writing to, or what country your friends are from. there is slang unique to each country that would work best in this situation, but without knowing which country, its hard to help ya out.
Can anyone help? I really need to reply to her!
Yes, let's wait as I am probably just about to fall of the stem.
The first thing I thought to say was "mujeres maduras," (mature women) but that sounds like you're ripe fruit!
Let's wait for someone who knows a kinder expression.
