: I bet you thought that this post was about something else... Fred?? Pancho??
+++Well what did you use YOUR post for...something else?
: Stella and I have this disagreement about our language. She, of course, is fluent beyond all of my expectations
++++Oh brudder...I'll let that one pass.
, and I have, thanks to her, a 75-100 word vocabulary which I have been working on.
+++Are there THAT many words for it?
: Anyway, she insists that while our language has a word for love "Hubba"
++++HUBBA?? You mean like Hubba Hubba? It's KHooba...no wonder you went out to eat so much!
, that it is only a noun, and can not be used as a verb.
She asserts that if a husband wanted to say "I love you" to his dear wife or vise versa (in our language), that no such phrase exists.
+++That's cause they're married...nimno. He oozes all over her when the object is to get into her pants...for THAT he's got lots of choices. "What color BMW you vant"...is one variant. "Honnie...vich Rolex"...is always good.
: I, being the aramaic expert and rhetorician that I am, insisted that there was indeed such a phrase (or verb), and that I would prove it by asking family members.
+++Great...did you ask them the night before?
: I haven't asked them yet, but was wondering if any of you could make my day or crush me like a bug under a fat man's foot by answering this question... please?
+++What was the question. Jeez, talk about your foreplay. "Anna K'buyinnakh"...comes to mind.
: It's up to you.
++++Do I have to do EVERYTHING around here?
