Today I'd like to share two great words that you don't seem to have in your otherwise extensive English language.
translates to "Seven sleeper" - one who sleeps til 7am. A very tardy, tired, lazy person.
The exaggerated ridicule of someone who sleeps til 7 doesn't make sense anymore, but in the days before electric light, people couldn't afford to let the daylight slip away while they themselves slept. Sjusovare is still used quite a lot though few people besides kids stop to think about the actual meaning of the term.
translates to "Little old". Someone who is too grown-up for his or her age. You say precocious, don't you? I was a lillgammal child. I read poetry and liked to be by myself. My vision of hell was a place where you'd have to play horse and take interest in cliques. I was little old. I still am, only now, the rest have caught up and in some cases have matured beyond even our age. No rush.
