Πονάω … παντού!!


Μου γράφει ο/η ‘seagull’ :

–      Πως λέμε ‘ Έχω ένα φοβερό πονοκέφαλο ’ ;

Όταν έχουμε ένα ήπιο πονοκέφαλο λέμε:

‘I’ve got a mild headache. It’s not that bad.

Όταν έχουμε ένα επίμονο πονοκέφαλο που δεν υποχωρεί και σχεδόν μας ‘τρελαίνει’ λέμε:

  •   I’ve got a splitting (που μου ‘σχίζει’ το κεφάλι) headache!
  •   I’ve got a terrible (τρομερό) headache!
  •   I’ve got a nagging (επίμονο κ’ ενοχλητικό) headache.

Και με την ευκαιρία αυτή θα σου δώσω και μερικούς ακόμα τύπους ‘πόνων’ !
