Some of you may have caught in my previous entry that I used the word “costal” because I don’t know what you call that kind of sack in English. English has a word for it I just don’t know what it is. Sometimes however, there are things I can’t explain from one language to another. For example right now I am sin ganas.
How do I explain that to people? The Yahoo! online dictionary says:
1. (deseo) – desire, longing
2. (apetito) – appetite
darle ganas (darle la gana de) – to feel like
de buena (mala) gana – willingly (unwillingly)
de gana – energetically, eagerly
con ganas – heartily
tener ganas de – to want to, feel like
sin ganas – unwillingly
I am sin ganas not “unwillingly”. I want to climb into bed and sleep. Or go spend the day sipping on cider and shooting with Equinox. Some of you may find this odd. Ohio has a “right to carry concealed” gun, and I am thinking of getting my license to do so. But really the truth is I just want to sit and veg for a little bit. I don’t have any anima or ganas. Which isn’t that I am unwilling but that part of my spirit has left me and is currently lost.
