    Dear colleagues,

    I have never heard the phrase "me va a dar algo gordo" before, and I am curious to know what it might mean. I received it in an email from a man in Barcelona. Here is the context:

    "a mi si que me da pena que todas las personas con las que mas quiero conversar sean de fuera de españa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa, me va a dar algo gordo tranquila es broma solo queria decirte que gracias"

    Thank you in advance for any light you may be able to shed on this turn of phrase.

    Sincerely,
    Heredianista

    It says that it is going to happen something to him, but then he says it´s a joke. It´s like I ma gonna die right now! In a similar way, but it´s joking!

    I hope you understand it now!
