    Default need this translated please!!!

    "se me durmio la mano :s"

    and its coming from a colombian speaker. When i tried the translation with the ":s" its totally different from just "se me durmio la mano" and also if it is ment to be like " 'name' se me durmio la mano :s" all show different results


    thanks

    I must not be understanding something. Se me durmió la mano is just like in English, my hand went to sleep. What's up with the :s? Is that a special feature of a translator program?

    Could :s be some sort of keyboard "smiley face?"

    Yup.

    :-S or :s means: "I'm confused, puzzled, perplexed."

    OK. I'll bite. khreed "tried the translation" with, I assume, a translation website. How is it going to know an emoticon from punctuation? But it seemed to make a difference.

    Heck, I could put that on just about all idioms from Puerto Rico.

    Example:
    I have poor circulation in my hand, and there are times when I wake up, because my hand has gone to sleep over the rise of the pillow.

    OR

    "pins and needles".
