My life as a fish

Sometimes trying to negotiate my life speaking the Slovene language, I feel like I'm underwater. The look of terror sometimes on my wife's aunt's face when I speak to her, even though my speaking is good (writing less so). Swimming through a medium that is unfamiliar and drowning in grammar, the 54 different noun endings that you get with six cases, three genders and the unusual three numbers (Slovene has the rare dual mode, where there is a special way of talking with two people or things). Yes a piscine ocean dweller; all at sea.
