hardvice loves his boyfriend:

In the past, I have lamented the BF's inability to recall nouns properly when speaking to me. All chores are either "laundry" or "dishes", which are completely interchangeable, for example. Equally charming is attempting to decipher sentences like "did you put the thing on the thing?" Grocery lists end up including things like "making clothes clean" and "ear scrapers".

Usually, this is frustrating. It's like a life-long game of charades.

Sometimes, however, it's highly entertaining. Like now. He just requested that I buy "mouth soap"--specifically, "shaking mouth soap". He accompanied this request with a mime of someone gargling spastically in great pain.

Ah, thinks I. Listerine.
