My Darling Liver

liver-loveI've always loved silly French terms of endearment like mon petit choup ("my little cabbage") and ma petit crotte ("my little poop"). So imagine my joy when my friend Tarannum told me the affectionate phrase mera kaleja -- used by folks of South Asian descent -- means "my darling" but literally translates as "my liver"!  Why bother giving someone your heart and soul when really the liver does so much of the body's dirty chemical work? So cute, and so much more fun than sweetheart, honey or baby. Love that liver.
