Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are fluent in their own language.

Married since 1988, the two actors gave a demonstration of how well they know each other in a video shared in a joint Instagram post on Tuesday, June 4.

In the adorable video, Bacon, 65, followed a recent social media trend by quizzing his wife, 58, on the distinct terms only they use. “So we tried the Couple Dictionary trend, and no the mosquitos were not telling me the answers," Sedgwick captioned the post.

Giving Sedgwick “clues on a word that we use at least weekly during our marriage,” the Footloose actor laughed while introducing the game. “What do we do when something is overwhelming and a total bummer?” he asked.

“Can it be a sound?” asked the Born on the Fourth of July actress, which Bacon confirmed. Sedgwick proceeded to nail the “Uh?” sound.

Round two was a word “for when you’re worried that your hair is falling out or you’re having a bad hair day,” announced Bacon. “You take a shower and then you’re looking in the mirror and you think that you have less of something than you had last week.”

“This is a little ditty that we like to call ‘hair-anoid,’” respo -

nded Sedgwick. “Not paranoid, ‘hair-anoid.’ And it means that you’re paranoid that your hair doesn’t look good.”

Laughing and running her hands through her hair, she added, “We both suffer from this problem!”

Bacon responded: “And tonight, it’s real.”
