POST
John: Listen again to Eduardo's post.
Ana Clara: Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje? Estou muito bodeado.
John: "Is there anything good going on tonight? I'm very bored."
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje? Estou muito bodeado. (Regular) Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje? Estou muito bodeado.
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Is there anything good going on tonight?"
Ana Clara: Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje?
John: The word,
Ana Clara: rolê
John: ...is a common slang term, especially among millennials. It means "a night out, a date, to take a walk, a drive by." It's used as a masculine noun. For example, you can say,
Ana Clara: dar um rolê.
John: ...which means, you are “taking a night out.” Here, Eduardo is asking if there's any night out being planned. In terms of grammar, it's used exactly as "date" - it can also mean, literally, "a date." Listen again- "Is there anything good going on tonight?" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje? (REGULAR) Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje?
John: Then comes the phrase - "I'm very bored."
Ana Clara: Estou muito bodeado
John: This is a slang phrase, meaning you're "bored, annoyed, discouraged or bummed out." It derives from the slang expression
Ana Clara: estar de bode,
John: Which has the same meaning. In this context, it means Eduardo is very bored, as he used the adverb “very” to state it. Listen again- "I'm very bored" is...
Ana Clara: (SLOW) Estou muito bodeado (REGULAR) Estou muito bodeado
John: All together, it's "Is there anything good going on tonight? I'm very bored."
Ana Clara: Vai ter algum rolê interessante hoje? Estou muito bodeado.
