Help with sms translation

Postby nmlss » Sun 12.11.2005 7:12 am

Recently I received this message, but I'm not able to translate it

ANATAWA WATASHIMO MUCU UNA ISHIWO TSUMAZUTTIRU

maybe and probably it is not written as it should be, but some kind of translation must exist
I would appreciate any help

It really sounds like gibberish. The words are all (mostly) correct, but it makes no sense (at least that I and the wife can figure out).
Here's a breakdown
あなたは -- You
私も -- me too
夢中な石を -- the stone I'm obsessed with
躓いている -- To trip on (like a stone)

Anyone else with better ideas?

Nope, looks like you nailed down the gibberish pretty well. I really have trouble with gibberish -- especially when it's (1) Romaji-fied, and (2) oddly spaced. It just doesn't strike my brainsack as "Japanese" and... man, it gives me headaches.
