This conversation transpired today between my new Polish roommate Łukasz and me as we were walking to the electronics store.
Łukasz: I bought those things for us.
Me: What things?
Łukasz: That we saw at the store yesterday.
Me: But what are they?
Łukasz: I don’t know how they’re called in English.
Me: Is it a fruit?
Łukasz: Yes, it’s food.
Me: Fruit, fruit. Frukti.
Łukasz: Ah, no, it’s not a fruit.
Me: Is it cheese?
Łukasz: No, it’s not a cheese.
Me: Is it….
Łukasz: Morskaya yeda.
Me: Ohhhh, seafood, seafood. I know what you’re talking about. Those… things. I don’t know what they are in English either.
Me: Łukasz, have you ever heard of the game Twenty Questions?
