Lost in Translation ,a real story

 Awaken by a sudden desire 
I decided to call my sweet american boyfriend 
with a conflicting grammar 
and an incorrigible accent
 I started the  long distance conversation . 
He enquired if I was 'UPSET ' 
I told me that I was not in the 'TOILET 
''Sweetheart I am driving a car 
'I interpreted that he was waging a WAR 
I felt ashamed of my hearing disorder 
'Can I text you in the morning ' 
As he wanted to know 
His TEXT got messed With SE* in my mind 
Can you hear me ? Can you hear me ? 
We wanted to enquire 
We struggled with each other 
Twisting our tongue and combing our ears 
The line was disturbed as we continued the conversation 
Till we realised that everything was lost in
 TRANSLATION 

I tried to make laugh I hope . . .

    LOL..... you made this incident seem amusing and endearing. No shame involved with mild lack of understanding.
