Ok, so maybe it should have been {bov tuj}. If you can figure out what it
means, what's the big deal. Actually, that's one of NickNicholas's creations.
He has a lot of good ideas, imesho. I only wish Krankor (and loyal
Krankorians, like charghwI') didn't get so annoyed by him.

My translation:

I live in Lexington.
We're near Mansfield.
To our south is Columbus.
Driving to Columbus takes one hour. (Literally: To arrive at Columbus, one
hour must occur, while we travel).
Tell me, if you pass Lexington.
I'll tell you, if I pass Toledo.
I might like to meet up with another speaker of Klingon.

I hope those subordinate clauses I used didn't scare anyone off.
