Explanation:
I don't know if you have noticed, but there is a spelling mistake in the original sentence. It's "deseo". This happens because in American Spanish, both "s" and "c" (and also "z") are pronounced as "s". But in peninsular Spanish, we make the difference, and therefore it is easier for us to tell when to write "z", "s" or "c".
I'm not proposing any more translations.
