Continuing with my Humans are Space Orc’s thoughts, I was thinking about how children might interact with Aliens, especially small children who have yet to learn to speak in full sentences and then this monstrosity of an idea came to me;
If you ever feel bad about English being your second language and not knowing some words, just remember I, a person who’s first language is English, forgot the word for “foot” and said “My human paw hurts.”
Explaining everyday things to aliens would really be a trip. I just spent the last 40 minutes talking to my cat like she was actually responding and pretending I was doing something important. How do you even explain that? Like I’m an alpha predator that spends its time cooing at a smaller predator that I have adopted into my home and treat as a species equivalent to a child. How the fuck do you explain something like that??
