Oh my god...
I am delighted to know there could be a hotel review somewhere complaining that they woke up at night and saw kakkalakki
s roaming on the floor!
Reading that, for some reason I immediately imagined a bunch of those American police hats with four tiny legs running around in circles, stained with shit and dropping small turds in their wake... that'd be a pretty confusing thing to see.
No, it can't be! Because it's such a clean, well-decorated hotel: Kõik ruumid on koristatud
. All the rooms have been cleaned. Kaikki ruumiit on koristettu
. All the corpses have been decorated.
How... how does Estonian... I can't...Tomorrow I'm going to Tallinn for two days with my dad so I tried to look up some simple phrases in Estonian, but the false friends have convinced me that it's better for me to just use English there because I'd literally die laughing even just trying to say "thanks"... aitäh
- thanks ai, täh?
- huh, what? (or whatever; not very natural to me (but "ai mitä?" is), but probably is for some, and it's exactly how the Estonian term sounds) tänan
- thanks tänään
I can't turn my Finnish off with Estonian at all, probably because the languages are so closely related. But it almost seems like there are more true friends and less false friends between Finnish and any other language than between Finnish and Estonian...
EDIT: Even though nobody cares, I don't want to lie so I'll edit this post to mention that because I barely slept last night and had a massive panic attack, I ended up not being able to go. My dad will probably never even talk to me ever again. I had a horrible "premonition" that the ship will sink, and I'm still afraid of that, so I'll text my dad to ask if he got there safely later today... but he probably won't respond, so...
- lust, craving 紐
(himo) - string, pimp, gigolo
Interestingly both can refer to something sexual but can also refer to something non-sexual.
