Of all my 512s so far, I believe this one to be the most Scalzi-esque; it would not be unfair to make comparisons between "Universal Language" and his "How I Proposed to My Wife: An Alien Sex Story." I wouldn't say I was directly inspired by that piece, but I definitely had its comedic-yet-sentimental tone in mind when working on this week's story. Like they say, steal from the best.
