I believe it's just "todo que leo", all that I read. - socceryo3, JUL 12, 2010
I guess that if you translated it to "everything" that would give you the answer. - 0074b507, JUL 12, 2010

Jejeje! OK, I think I get it now! Your sentence in Spanish has only 9 words (the only 9 words you remember). And, your sentence in English has only 10 words (the only 10 words in English that you remember)! Well done! - Pajaro44, JUL 12, 2010

a causa de mi memoria mala, no recuerdo el nombre de mi esposa. Eso es la razón que le llamo, "cariño, oye preciosidad, mi novia, apuesta, etc, etc" . No existe un desliz.

Due to my bad memory, I can´t remember my wife´s name. That´s why I call her "darling, hi precious, my bride, gorgeous, etc,etc". No chance of slipping up.
