  1. I enjoyed reading this, but must admit that if such English words existed I would forget them when they were needed. It’s how it works with me and words. 🙂 Maybe No. 11 on the list kinda sorta applies to me and words…

    11. L’esprit de l’escalier (French): usually translated as “staircase wit,” is the act of thinking of a clever comeback when it is too late to deliver it

      I like #15. Meraki (pronounced may-rah-kee; Greek): Doing something with soul, creativity, or love. It’s when you put something of yourself into what you’re doing. But my son must like #23, Tingo (Pascuense language of Easter Island): to borrow objects one by one from a neighbor’s house until there is nothing left. I have no rakes, no wheelbarrow, etc. They have all disappeared somewhere in his garage and in return he has left me all his seasonal stuff he doesn’t want cluttering up his garage: Christmas lights, garage sale items, etc. You just have to love him!

        LOL I had onloy been back less then a week and decided that the grass could not wait to be mowed. I put gas in the mower that was out in the yard beside the garage and tried to start it. Suddenly it burst into flames and I rushed for some water to put the flames out. When my wife got home I was quite demanding that we go buy a new mower. LOL Only to be informed that we owned a brand new one my daughter had broughted to mow her grass at the house she stay at.
