A year of my life living in Russia. Not nearly long enough. There, I learned so many gorgeous Russianisms from the lips of so many gorgeous Russians. One sticks out in my mind particularly. “In every joke, there is a joke”. This one happy thought has single-handedly brought me through many an awful, absurd, bizarre situation.
