It’s no surprise that Romanians eat a lot of meat (especially pork!) and thus have a lot of slang expressions and euphemisms based on the word carne (meat).
One interesting one is în carne și oase, which literally translates to “in meat and bones”. But what does it mean?
It’s exactly equivalent to the English expression “flesh and blood”, as in meeting someone in person or face to face (versus online or some other way). So now you can understand this conversation:
Cute girl: Uau! Ieri am vorbit cu Sam cel Roman
Other girl: Unde? Pe net?
Cute girl: Nu! În carne și oase
Other girl: Ce fain!
NOW YOU CAN PRACTICE WITH YOUR FRIENDS! :P
