My partner's text is in black and my comments are in purple:
PS: English is my partner's second language so excuse the short post.
I'll start with writing habits. She spends too many hours in front of her computer and I’m really worried about her eyes, actually – given that I love them! I would do anything to change this but I know that it’s not going to happen. She loves her computer more than me!
I do not! I love your eyes too, Sweetie. :o)
I know it’s always difficult to catch your dream. I was exactly the same. You need to sacrifice things and be absolutely devoted to it. If you have been through it at least once in your life, you are able to understand why someone does everything possible to get there. It is hard to realize that they are somewhere else, not here, beside you –most of the time at least - but it’s quite understandable :)
It frustrates me when she keeps asking me to read the stuff she wrote! And it's hard for me. It takes me twice as long as it would someone who speaks English fluently. I wish I could. And I wish she'd understand when I say I can't and not get upset and start yelling and crying and bringing up all the things she does for me and makes me feel guilty. I will read your book when it's published, baby, I promise! No matter how long it takes, I will do it. I love you.
I love you too! I'm sorry I get so upset. It's just that I want to share my joy with the man I love. I'm sorry it's so hard for you.
So there you have it. Can I just add something kinda funny about sharing a life with a man whose second language is English? Just for a laugh: One day we were sitting on the balcony, discussing some odd jobs that needed doing around the house, and he said,
"We need to get the pimps fixed."
"Yeah, they're leaking."
"Oh! The pipes!"
:o) Have a great weekend everyone!
