Relationshipship, vol. XVII

Because I am such a dunderhead about anything involving relationships or love, I shall turn over this entry to my favorite Latin Doctor of Love,

Thank you so very much for those kind words.

So very often I get letters saying to me "Doctor Oblivioso, since you are the Latin Doctor of Love, can you tell me what love is?", or words to that effect. Not everyone writes the exact same sentence or anything, but the meaning remains the same, even if sometimes some of you leave off the 'Doctor' or spell my name incorrectly or things like that.

But to the point of the letter, this question reminds me of a story of a woman who had been deaf from birth. She had never ever heard a sound in her life, but through some miracle of modern medicine, she was given a chance to have an operation that would restore her hearing.

The doctors operated well into the night, and many hours later she was in the recovery room, and she woke up just as the sun peeked over the horizon.

She cringed in fear, then had a shocked look on her face. When asked why, she said that because the sun was so bright, she had also expected it to be loud.

I love this story. It has nothing to do with the question, but it successfully distracted you from thinking about it, didn't it?

To answer your question: no, I can't.

Thank you.
