word of the day: sucia

The word of the day is sucia:

1. Dirty, nasty, filthy (mugriento).
2. Stained with sin, tainted with guilt and imperfections.
3. Obscene (palabra), unchaste, smutty.
4. Uncivil, unpolished.
5. Foul; applied to a ship’s bottom, to the sky or weather; to rowing out of rhythm; and to a rocky shore, or a bottom where there are reefs. (Nautical)  (

"Your girl catches you cheating.  (Well, actually she's your fiancée, but in a bit it so won't matter.)  She could have caught you with one sucia, she could have caught you with two, but because you're a totally batshit cuero who never empties his e-mail trash can, she caught you with fifty!"

 - Junot Díaz, "The Cheater's Guide to Love", New Yorker 23 July 2012
