spanish expressions Sujeta-velas
We’ve got many versions of this expression in english – third wheel, odd one out, three’s a crowd, tagging along. This is a comical phrase for those who seem to be stuck in that awkward situation where a hangout turned into a date and you were left in the dust. For example, “Sé que voy a ser una sujetavelas toda mi vida…” which means “I know i’ll be a third wheel my entire life…”
