... when you are chatting with one of your best friends, and he says goodbye, so you say
goodbye too, only you make a typographical error (1 letter). Your friend does not assume
it was a typo, nor that you made up the word, nor asks what you meant; he asks what
language that's in!!!

When you get far hornier for languages than members of the opposite sex.

When you're not happy with the amount of time you're spending in your target language,
despite spending your whole day listening to music, watching films, learning vocab,
watching TV, reading books and speaking to others in that language, so you decide to
maximise your time by constantly thinking in your target language instead of your native
tongue, despite the fact that you've only been learning it for a few days.

...when you not only know lots of countries your friends aren't aware of, you know their names in languages they're also not aware of.

When you're trying to learn to read music and bit more about music theory (wishing you'd paid attention a little more in classes in school) and in an attempt to make this easier for yourself, you try to relate as much as possible to learning a language.

When it notably annoyed you that the cardinal directions on your GPS in Korean UI mode simply read N, S, E, W (as it does for Japanese as well, even though Chinese and Taiwanese get actual Chinese characters there instead, so you know that data is part of the language file). So, after a quick tweak to the language data file for Korean, it now shows the appropriate Hangul there instead (like it should have from the start).

And now...you're pondering adding a second Korean language choice to your GPS so you can have a Hangul/Hanja mixed script version.

One of my favourite aspects to learning piano was learning the theory of music, not because I was really into it, but simply because I got to learn lots of musical terminology and directions in different languages like Italian. In fact, even as I type, my fingers are already itching to get back to the keyboard at the very thought of this...fortissimo, con fuoco, fantastico! :)

when you hope that it will rain tomorrow so that you have a good reason to stay at home and study languages.
