What .. a pain!


Question by ‘seagull’ :   ”Πως λέμε ‘ Έχω ένα φοβερό πονοκέφαλο ;

My Reply to ‘seagul’: 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’ !
