Here are 7 emotions foreign languages have words for, but English doesn’t!

  • [long-winded definition of word that just means “sad”]
  • [wild misinterpretation of idiomatic phrase]
  • [plagiarised entry from The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows]
  • [not actually an emotion]
  • [stark illustration that author doesn’t understand how loanwords work]
  • [neologism used once by one particular 19th Century poet]
  • [obligatory appearance of “schadenfreude”]

Even can’t do laundry normally and Isak can’t make tea for shit. They’re both messy boys that have The Chair™ where all their clothes are thrown on. They have a wide screen TV to play FIFA on and Isak has an IPhone 7 but both don’t have a kettle and I bet some other basic stuff. They don’t make their bed. They put memes on their walls. They buy a pack of 10 white T-shirts and just both wear them always. Isak doesn’t find his pants? He wears Even’s, which are far too long for him. They aren’t organized at all and can’t remember where they put their stuff. When the other forgets to do something, the other doesn’t yell and just basically says well okayyy whatever while smiling fondly. They both grin like idiots when the other calls as if their crush called to invite them to a movie date. They both say I love you before they end the call. They both don’t know what a goodbye peck is. Only what a slow passionate parting kiss is. The boys are in love and living together. They are a realistic happy healthy couple and no I’m not crying.
