Verb and noun. From Dutch.
“To give someone the chance of a positive experience, particularly if it results in you not having it”
“The eyes on someone who is being mischievous”
Gunnen can also indicate the derivation of satisfaction from someone elses’ success. Pretoogjes literally translates as ‘fun eyes.’ Remember: as they’re both Dutch, the ‘g’ sound will some from the back of the throat.
