I did my three years in Guate - and now some one has asked me for the root of the word "fijese' - I'm stumped - any suggestions?

Your name sounds familiar weren't you in my group in Guate? Sorry if I've forgotten, it's been a long time.
Fijese is the command tense of the reflexive verb Fijar-se (to pay attention), not to be confused with Fijar in the non-reflexive form which means "to fix".
Here is a good link if you want to brush up on your grammar:
