How do these two women greet each other?
Ну, что у тебя случилось?
Well, what at you happened? (In normal English: What happened with you?) (You’ll master the word “сучилось” in Russian Accelerator :-))
Да, ничего не случилось. Проходи.
NOTE: The “Да” here is functioning the same way it does in the phrase “Да нет”. It’s basically just emphasizing the negative part. Like saying, “Nah, nothing happened.”
