@nomadatlatl It’s close, but I don’t think “pleasantly” sounds natural here. It’s just a bit more of a formal word. In this context, which sounds more conversational, I might say “happily” or “cheerfully.”
@Cathy_Z Thanks a lot. "Pleasantly" sounds a bit formal, right? I never noticed it until you told me.😄 You mean "pleasantly" doesn't go well in this context? Isn't it a matter of preference? Do you mind explaining it so I can understand more easily?
Happily or cheerfully is good. "いそいそと"は、この文脈で"うきうきと"と日本語で言えます。You can say "うきうきと" instead of "いそいそと" in this context. As to comma, like this? A resident of the apartment house next to me, A-san,* pleasantly goes golfing every Sunday.
@Cathy_Z Thanks a lot. I can see what you mean as to "pleasantly." I think I can get the nuance. Having said that, it might be a matter of taste in a sense. You think “pleasantly” in my sentence modifies “goes.” Thinking of "goes golfing" being a set phrase, however, what it modifies is "goes golfing," not only "goes," I think. If so, it quite makes sense, doesn't it? 🤔 Did I save you? 🤷 Anyway, I always really appreciate your effort.🙇
Oops, you've just forgotten. Don't you commonly use a jab instead of a shot?🤔 Never heard of booster jab? Tell me! 💁
@nomadatlatl 心配してくれてありがとう｡😊💕 You would laugh if you knew how much I ruminate over your questions.😂 It’s so interesting to consider my native tongue in such a way. 🧐🙇🏻♀️
Shot/jab…everyone that I know of says shot, and every official piece of literature regarding the vaccine has said booster shot. In fact, I have been inundated with text messages and voice messages because I was late getting my booster shot and am eligible. They are really trying to encourage people.
@Cathy_Z Yep, I just cracked a smile.😜 It's funny to imagine you have been burying your head in your hands out of my questions. I've learned a lot through exchanging ideas with natives like you. いつもホントにありがとう。😋
