Cómo combatir el hipo

El Hipo

The word “hip” (el) means to walk or move quickly, and it’s used in many different ways: to get up quick; to run fast; to go fast; to jump high; and so on. El hipo is a slang term that refers specifically to the act of running away from something. If someone runs away from you, they’re probably doing it because they want your money or their car keys. They might even be trying to escape some sort of trouble.

In Spanish, the verb quiero (“to run”) comes from the same root as quiere (“to flee”). Quieren means “to run,” but it’s usually used when someone is fleeing from danger rather than escaping it.

So if you see someone running away from a fight, you don’t say, “Quien está tu cambio?

Perdería de los ganadores.”

You would say, “¿Quiénes darán las razones?” (“What are you hiding from?”


The word hipo is often used to describe a situation: “No puedo creer que tuviera que escapar de ese bar antes de que las cosas se pusieran feas. Fue un hipo.” (“I can’t believe I had to run out of that bar before things got bad. It was such a close call.”)

This word is also used to describe people who are cowardly. “Ese tipo está lleno de mierda. No puedo creer el hipo que es.” (“That guy’s a real wuss.

I can’t believe how much of a coward he is.”)

But the word hipo also has an older meaning: it used to refer to a medical condition that causes someone to hold their breath so long they pass out. It’s sometimes referred to as “church hiccups” because it is usually caused by a combination of shock and surprise, like seeing someone suddenly jump out from around a corner. A person with hipo might start laughing or crying without warning or for no reason at all. It is also known as singultus or dysphonia emicatilis progressiva.

Doctors aren’t sure of exactly what causes it, but it seems to only happen to people who have some sort of mental illness or people who are under a lot of stress.

Ever since the advent of modern medicine, doctors have seen much less of this condition, but it is still common in people who suffer from certain types of mental illnesses. For example, many victims of post-traumatic stress disorder suffer from it.
