Ooopps...

One of my colleagues called my name some fifiteen minutes ago. He wanted me to come into his room as he needed some help.

My answer: I'll be there in a minute!

In English...

I'm tired. And my brain is confused.

Oh, Anna! That's funny. :teehee:


I tried to reply to the comment you left on my blog, but it bounced the email back so I'll just paste it here.
"Thanks for your kind words, Anna.

This is just par for the course in my life, so I'm not surprised. I will prevail! :teehee:

:kram: :kram:"

Anna! I think it's DEFINITELY time for that vacation to Spain! It sounds like you need some time off. :) I'm curious now...how do you say "I'll be there in a minute!" in Swedish?

I'm a native speaker of English but studied Russian at university and spent a semester in Russia. More than 10 years later, whenever I travel abroad, my brain tries its best to speak Russian (which I've forgotten almost entirely), I start to get rusty in English, and as a result can barely speak at all. What's especially stupid is that if I could just stick with English, it's likely that someone would understand me, but there's almost no chance I'm going to meet a Russian speaker!

Internationella lilla du! *ler* Det var väl rart, fick du någon respons?

Anna said...

eKittie: You're welcome! :kram:

Kate: I would say "Kommer alldeles strax" or something like it. It's not a "word-to-to" translation but means sort of the same.

Rebecca: That's hilarious! Have you met many Russian-speakers while travelling? :)

Vendie: :teehee:

Mona: Faktiskt inte! :) Tror inte att han riktigt hörde vad jag sa...

I say the same thing several times a day. I wonder how many people I forgot to talk to yesterday! :kram:
