Kami o kiritai

One of the fun things I find about spoken Japanese is its sheer brevity. And Jap, like most languages, will have it's fair share of homonyms, hence the title. On the way to Jap class yesterday I thought up that sentence, with the intended meaning of "(I) want to cut my hair." Then it hit me that those exact same words can mean "(I) want to kill god(s)".

I like Japanese :-D
