Rewriting a Sentence Could you help me to write this sentence correctly? How would you say it? Is there any formula to avoid repeating the pronoun "him" all the time? "There, Nabi takes care of his paralytic boss by feeding him, cleaning him, reading stories to him, and all of those tiny details that daily life implies."

Here's another option: "...Nabi takes care of his paralytic boss by feeding and cleaning him, reading him stories, and dealing with all the tiny details of daily life." Before "the details of daily life", you need a verb which means "take care of" (I chose "dealing with") because the parallel structure starts with "feeding". You can reduce pronoun use through parallel structure, like I did. I couldn't do it with "reading stories" because you need an indirect object not a direct one.
