  • In Spanish, if you say "Estoy lista" it means "I'm ready to go". If you say "Soy lista" it means "I'm clever" as in "my mind is ready, quick-witted, and sharp." I recommend looking into Spanish adjectives that change meaning based on their pairings with SER and ESTAR. Meanings move from the concrete to the abstract in a certain way that make sense once you know them, but would be hard to predict if you came upon them, unprepared, in the wild.
