Can you give some examples for the usage of the term 'sou san' which I believe means 'willing'. How can I best use it?

Sou san → to be amenable, to be in good mood, to be well disposed
You got to use a pronoun after "sou san."

1. Li pa sou san l jodi a.
    He's not in a good mood today.

2. Tanpri kite m anrepo. Mwen pa sou san m jodi a.
    Please leave me alone. I'm not in a good mood today.

3. Madanm sa a, se lè l sou san l sèlman li fè manje nan kay la.
    This woman only cooks in the house when she feels like it.

4. Depi w wè li pa sou san l, pa gen pyès moun ki ka pale avè'l.
    When she's not in a good mood, no one can talk to her.
