Find the thing(2) : such a mess !!
Hola todos, I have A game for you I know the last one wasn't very successful but I hope this one will work .
game rules :-
- I will post a picture and you will try to describe \ say the things in that picture
- please post one word on each answer so everybody gets the chance to answer
- Please post the word in both languages, English and Spanish.
- The winner will be whoever finds the hardest thing to spot (thing that can't be noticed easily) in the pic and translates it correctly. The winning entry will be chosen as the best answer tomorrow
For example :-
The things in the pic are :-
el sofá= the sofa
la foto = the picture
........And so on
So the picture of the day is :-
La pluma que está entre el vaso y la computadora
The pen that is
laying lying between the cup and the computer.
Ach! I will never get that one straight. I even checked my dictionary before writing it!
1 [ trans. ] put down, esp. gently or carefully : she laid the baby in his crib. [ trans. ] prevent (something) from rising off the ground : there may have been the odd light shower just to lay the dust.
But of course, it really is:
lie 1 |l?| verb ( lying |?l?-i ng |; past lay |l?|; past part. lain |l?n|) [ intrans. ] 1 (of a person or animal) be in or assume a horizontal or resting position on a supporting surface : the man lay face downward on the grass | I had to lie down for two hours because I was groggy | Lily lay back on the pillows and watched him.
Oh well - that's my personal "ser & estar" in English.
