A Primer For the Punctuation of Heart Disease by Jonathan Safran Foer.

Familial communication always has to do with failures to communicate. It is common that in the course of a conversation one of the participants will not hear something that the other has said. It is also quite common that one of the participants will not understand what the other has said. Somewhat less common is one participant’s saying something whose words the other understands completely but whose meaning is not understood at all. This can happen with very simple sentences, like “I hope that you never love anyone as much as I love you.”
