Literal translation: “peeling so someone else can suck.” This is a refence to fruit vendors on the streets of the Dominican Republic, who sell peeled oranges for their patrons to eat.  

Meaning: working so someone else can reap the fruits of my labor. This is very frequently just an ironic way of saying “I’m hanging in there”, a comical answer to give someone who asks how you are doing.    

Significado: trabajando para que otro disfrute de los resultados. Forma cómica de responderle a alguien que le pregunta cómo está. Otra forma de decir “más o menos”.

Use: general, colloquial
