Oh..., it's taken a lot of love (giving and receiving) for me (a stickler with words) to relax and accept that my partner/best friend/lover... is neither such a stickler nor inclined to become such a stickler.
Words are BIG in my world, as is good reasoning and even, sometimes, logic.
I've spent years hanging out with philosophers, who really know how to dot their t's and cross their i's, let me tell you. I haven't all of their talents or skills, but I have a lot of their spirit. And very few do!
