We go around the table taking turns making sentences from little cartoon pictures. I was happy when I saw the picture for my turn because I thought I knew what to say. The picture showed a woman with lines coming out of her head, putting a pill in her mouth and holding a glass of water. I was sure it meant “Her head hurts. She takes medicine. When her head hurts, she takes medicine.” I said “Atama ga ippai to ki, kusuri o nomimasu”. My teacher was laughing because I said when her head is full, she takes medicine. What I should have said was “Atama ga itai to ki, kusuri o nomimasu.” (Ippai - full, Itai - painful)
My head is full. Is there medicine for that?
