La Macacoa

“Te cayó la macacoa.”  My mother used to say that. Cool word if you ask me. It almost sounds like some sort of strange bird or something. Not quite. La Macacoa, in Puerto Rico at least, is a devlish little creature that lands on your shoulder and weighs you down.   She makes people “under the weather” as they say, whenever she comes around. Sometimes she just makes life heavy.  Others, she brings a string of bad luck. Either way, you don’t really want a visit from this nasty little lady. She’s quite difficult to shake off. So if you ever see her, run!
