I don't know why or how it came to be, but the word pantalones has become a term of exclamation with my kids.
If somebody rides by on a Harley or passes the car in a monster truck, they yell out, "Pantalones!"
I'm still unsure of whether it is a term of endearment or a something you say to jone on somebody.
Either way, it's something that deserves to be exclaimed during momentous moments.
Yes, I just said "momentous moments."
