Jesusito is still sleeping and not sleepy.
Q - I like the way your German teacher put it. Well, when I talk about a literal translation, for me it means "what it means" without trying to find a nice way to put it or to find rhymes but not word for word translation either. Every time I post a translation on Mudcat, it's "what it means"-only, unless I say otherwise (which happens "at every Pope's death" as we say here -word for word translation!)
