On a more pleasant note, here's a sweet story from yesterday. I should probably first explain that my husband usually speaks Russian to me so I can be slow on the uptake when he speaks in English just because it's unexpected. Anyway, out of the blue my husband told me quite seriously, in English, "You are my loaf." Uh, what? He repeated himself. I asked, "Did you just say loaf? What does that mean?" He was like, "You know loaf-- LOAF!" I finally asked him, "What are you trying to say in Russian?" And just so you know, I'm not making fun of his English skills. I could write post after post about the ways I've embarrassed myself trying to speak Russian. Anyway, because he has a thick accent and maybe because he's a little congested right now (mild cold), I didn't understand that what he was actually trying to say was, "You are my love." Once I understood, it gave me a fit of the giggles, which in hindsight is a really shitty reaction to someone declaring their love for you. I told him I'm going to make that line my own. Later I even told my son the story. I told him "You are my loaf." It's kind of adorable. It makes me think of something warm and soft. Feel free to use it on your loved ones.
Anyway, this also happened yesterday:
