Question
Hi Saeed,

Best wishes from İzmir to you and yours! Hope all is going great.

Please, what is the most usual way to say the following in Colloquial Persian?

(Spoken downstairs:) I'll just take this pillow upstairs.
(Spoken upstairs:) I'll just take this dirty linen (i.e. clothes that need washing) downstairs.

The house I have in mind is a simple, two-storey one.

Best wishes, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Dear Simon,
Thanks for your lovely wishes, however all is not going well!

Your answer:
Formal:
در پایین پلکان صحبت می شود: فقط این بالش را بالا می برم
در بالای پلکان صحبت می شود: فقط این لباس های کهنه را پایین می برم

Colloquial:
فقط این بالشو بالا می برم
فقط این لباسای کهنه رو پایین می برم

Best Wishes
Saeed
