    another quickie

    How do you translate the following into Russian?

    When I die, I will go to heaven.
    My guess: Когда я умираю, я иду в небо.

    Thanks in advance.
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    Может быть, так: Когда я умру, я попаду на небо

    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    Попасть на небо = Попасть на небеса = Попасть в рай.
    So in this context "heaven" = небо = небеса = рай.

    Yes, we all do, but it's not every day that we go to heaven.

    Это зависит от смысла. Если ты хочешь сказать, что каждый день жизни приближает человека к смерти, тогда "понемногу". Если имеется в виду каждодневный (еженочный) сон, тогда - "немножко". Если вообще ничего конкретного не имеется в виду, тогда - оба варианта.
