I sometimes have dreams in which I or other characters speak in Russian (probably a broken-Russian that makes sense within the dream).

But I cannot generally “think in Russian” when I’m awake; I have to think of the English first and then translate. For me, Russian is a foreign language, not a second language.

Like what you read? Give Rob McGee a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
