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??

I just now noticed that the original question and followup response from juanita are much older than any of the answers given. Odd.
Thank you very much. I've been forever trying to figure this one out.
