ARE YOU A "POLLO DE PRIMAVERA"?
I used this expression once with my in-laws (familia politica) and they all seemed to find it quite amusing so I thought I would share it with all of you. Although a "pollo de primavera" make no sense in Spanish, in English "spring chicken" is something you say to someone when you think they are very young.
So, for example: "You are only 20 years old!!...you are a spring chicken in comparison to me!" I used this expression in a small speech that I gave and the only thing that people remembered after I had spoken was the reference to the "pollo de primavera" = "spring chicken" = alguien joven.
Hope that helps!
