POST
Dana: Listen again to Anders's post.
Mirai: Fan vilken seg dag! Uttråkad, några tips?
Dana: "Damn what a slow day! Bored, any tips?"
Mirai: (SLOW) Fan vilken seg dag! Uttråkad, några tips? (Regular) Fan vilken seg dag! Uttråkad, några tips?
Dana: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Damn, what a slow day!"
Mirai: Fan, vilken seg dag!
Dana: A common phrase used in Sweden when people feel like time is passing slowly. For example…
Mirai: Fan, vilken seg arbetsdag!
Dana: “Damn, what a slow workday!” It can also be used when describing people. For example...
Mirai: Erik, kan du sluta vara så seg?
Dana: “Erik, can you stop being so slow?” Listen to the expression again. "Damn, what a slow day!" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Fan, vilken seg dag! (REGULAR) Fan, vilken seg dag!
Dana: Then comes the phrase "bored, any tips?"
Mirai: Uttråkad, några tips?
Dana: On social media, we tend to express ourselves in shorter phrases than we would when speaking.
Mirai: Uttråkad, några tips? is a good example.
Dana: Right, and you can change it to any topic you would like to get tips or advice about. For example...
Mirai: Hungrig, några tips?
Dana: “Hungry, any tips?” Listen to the expression again. "Bored, any tips?" is...
Mirai: (SLOW) Uttråkad, några tips? (REGULAR) Uttråkad, några tips?
Dana: All together, it's "Damn, what a slow day! Bored, any tips?"
Mirai: Fan vilken seg dag! Uttråkad, några tips?
