Hmm...While influence is correct, it's probably a bit too strong there. For example, an artist might use to describe people he looks ...

賢いな終了。 私なり、失礼なんですか?俺の場合、日本人の友達からくだけた日本語を習って、たまに直訳すぎると思うんだけどね。「くるくるっぱ、ちょろいもんだょ、なに言ってんだよ」ってみたいな言葉を知った。miraiと話し合ったら、なんでもOKらしいだよん。

> 実際、そんな下品な思考が次々と出てくるんだからたまらない。 「if you know what I mean」は私が解説したように、ストレートに言いたくないことを遠回しに言うときに添えるフレーズだから、「下ネタ」を言うときによく使いますね。

そう、単身赴任を聞いたことがある。ずるくない?結婚しただんな、自分で住んでいること。。。それは日本風でしょうか。でも、miraiさんは日本風ではないよね。^^;

日本でも家族帯同の転勤が一般的だと思いますが、大学受験を控えた子供がいると、厄介な問題になるのでしょうね。

careそのものはポジティブな意味(気に掛ける)で、mindはネガティブな意味(嫌に思う)を持つので、それらを否定文で使用すると意味(トーン)が逆転するわけですね。 I don't care. → 気にも掛けない → 私の知ったことじゃない I don'...
