I think Heather is right. I remember as a little girl hearing this
Explanation: term all the time... "tantas arrobas de trigo".... This is the definition from
"arroba=25 pounds (11.5 kg) about 28.5 pints (16.1 litres of wine). about 22 pints (12.6 litres of oil"
It even gives sentences of the other uses of the word: "por arrobas= in abundance, galore
"tiene gracia por arrobas= he's extremely witty, he is full of wit.
Espero que esto te ayude.
Saludos. Maria ;o)
