I’ll have whatever Calista Flockhart is having

Am I the only person who had never heard the term “brain sex” until Kitty (Calista Flockhart) said it to her husband, Robert (Rob Lowe) on TV’s “Brothers and Sisters”?

If I understood her correctly, it means the kind of verbal sparring that occurs when two people speak to one another on a subject they care about in animated, intelligent, lucid, lively, bright, colorful and descriptive sentences.

We word lovers have long known that words matter. Now there’s one more reason why being smart about your words can make you happy.
