Love and Logic

Here's a logic lesson for my regular readers.


"Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real. "
Iris Murdoch (1919 - 1999)
British novelist


"Dan loves his puppet George."
Dan Bushman (1960 - )
Budding Ventriloquist


"Realize that George is real."



The correct spelling is capisce; not capiche, kapeesh, or anything else.

It is Italian for "Do you understand?"
The infinitive form is capire and it is an irregular verb.
ce and ci have a soft sound in Italian. The pronunciation of Capiche would be Kapeekay.

If Budding Ventriloquist stands for anything, it's rigorous journalistic research and integrity. But you already knew that, didn't you?

And... thanks to someone who identified herself only as "Sicilian Godmother" for answering this on the web on "Yahoo!Answers".  Dare I really be grateful to a Sicilian Godmother? Should I someday expect an offer I can't refuse?
