LMAO, I'm so there with you Sneacail. So with you!
I sometimes stare at Maca these days and OFTEN ask him, "what does that word mean when you use it?"
It helps a lot, at least I know what the FUCK he's saying. But it sure does take a LOT LONGER to get through what could be a short and simple conversation if it weren't for him speaking some f'd up form of English not transated into current dictionaries!
