Today’s ESL moment

As you know, English is not my native language. I have been using it more or less daily since I was 14, and I prefer to use English for certain things (listening to General Conference, for example), but English is only my second language, and boy, does my brain interpret it weirdly from time to time!

Like this morning, I was looking for something on lds.org and my brain got hung up on this:

Why would I want to increase quiet fear? I mean I’ve been spending the last so many months trying to get rid of anxiety! It took me three reads to get it.

English, I love you. You make life entertaining.

Btw, go read that talk.
