A Monday Cubanism

Today’s Cubanism is a Cuban Mom’s favorite. I’m sure every single one of them has this particular one in their childrearing vocabulary of sayings:

Cubanism:

Salirse del plato.

Translation:

Leaving the plate. Or spilling out of the plate.

Usage:

Tired of Val’s antics at the mall, his mom told him not to salirse del plato, or else.
