    Мы как закричим!

    Can somebody give me a hint, please, how to translate into English this type of russian expressions:

    Мы как закричим!
    А он как набросится!
    Как выпрыгнет, как выскочит... etc.

    with all these "как"...

    мы как закричим! - How we will shout!

    А он как набросится! - How he attacks/pounces!

    It's kinda like an expression of amazement, or excitement. Take the line from очи черные.

    "как люблю я вас! как боюсь я вас!"

    Oh! How I love you! Yet, how I am afraid of you!

    Don't say this too lound amongst native English speakers!

    And, surely, don't ask "How is Simon" in Russian, unless you want a bunch of surprised stares!!!
