Tell us what ladybird mean, Drina.Misunderstandings due to false language interpretations between people of different nationalities. When I first arrived in England in 1948 I heard somebody say "we are having an early spring there is a ladybird in the garden". Thinking she was referring to a bird I asked: "how do you know it is a lady? I couldn't understand why they laughed so much and they never let me forget my blunder during the next 10 years I lived in England.
I'm with you on this. My nephews are all grown men, in their 30s and one is 41. They think nothing of letting one rip whenever and my eldest nephew could fuel a rocket with his. I always crack-up.Farts.
I am incapable of not laughing out loud, uncontrollably, at farts.
HA!!!! I'll bet she thought why is he asking me THAT??The word "infusion" in french means "tisane"
In 1976 living in South Africa when a lady guest refused coffee at our home my french husband Pierre asked her "Would you like an infusion, madam?" When very shocked she replied "I beg your pardon, sir?" I almost dropped the tray with the coffee cups I was holding standing by them and had to rush back to the kitchen I was laughing so much.
Our guests that evening were not close friends but people we were expected to receive now and then since my husband was representing his company in
PS. The word "infusion" was interpreted by the lady in question as "enema"
