    Yeah, I definitely forgot the word for eggs.

    At a local talent show with some friends, and friends of my friends, because someone they all know is performing a song. During the woman’s song, one of the friend of my friends in the row right in front me me turns to us and announces “She’s using way too much fellatio.”

    After the show, this person says, “I meant she used too much vibrator.”

    At least the second was closer to the word she wanted, vibrato. The singer had a very strong (sometimes referred to as goat-bleat) vibrato when she sang.

  24. Two in military settings:
    1. My father was in the Air Force when my brothers and I were little. Once my mother was in the commissary and my 2-year-old blond blue-eyed little brother looked around, saw a man’s leg in uniform trousers, yelled, “Daddy!” and hugged the leg of the very African-American airman in line ahead of us. He just laughed.
    2. I was in a school when I was a lieutenant in the Marines and one of the instructors, a woman who was a captain, taught classes on the fiscal system, a pretty tedious subject. She could never figure out why she got applause at the end of her presentations – she always finished by putting her hands together palm to palm at about groin level with her fingers pointed down and her thumbs pointed up and saying, “And that’s about the size of it.”

    I have 2. When my little sister was 2 or 3 she was looking through a wildlife book my grandma brought her and suddenly yelled “Look Grandma! Beavers and Cunts!!! Beavers and Cunts!!” After a moment of shock, I managed to look at the book. Apparently she couldn’t say “skunk” yet.

    The second was my own misfortunate wording. I work in an animal ER and when triaging, it’s not uncommon to announce to the Vets what you just triaged like “I have a Hit By Car” “I have a limping dog”, etc. I came back after triaging a dog with GI upset and said “I have diarrhea!”

  47. My little sister does NOT swear. Ever. So when she turned to my mom and told her that her students’ work was half-assed, we were both shocked and asked her to repeat herself. She said, “Half-fast. You know. You do something half-fast?” She was horrified when we told her what the phrase actually was.

    My favorite, though, was when I worked in a bookstore and a man came in asking me for “non-fiction books about vampires.” Thinking maybe he meant myths and legends, I took him to that section and showed him the Encyclopedia of Vampires, and other similar books. He looked them over and then (very seriously) informed me that he was looking for more information because he had read his “first non-fiction book, ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'”. I stared at him. So he continued talking about how he hadn’t known any of that had happened, and ended with an incredulous, “It’s amazing to think he could still be out there today, right!?” To which I had to respond, “Well, we’ll never know…”

She looked at me carefully and said, “Do you live in the storm?” Well, that seemed like a really weird thing to say, so I inelegantly replayed, “What?” And she repeated herself. Well, I was in the middle of a really turbulent time in my life, lots of running into the night, fevered journaling and sobbing. It struck me as so extremely poetic to call that the storm, but I didn’t know how she could know that I was experiencing that.

  95. I learned two alternate names for KFC from kids I used to babysit (a lifetime ago…).
    The kids who had a shoe salesman father always called it Chicken Sandals.
    The youngest child in the other family was trying to convince her mother that she deserved to eat her dessert one afternoon because she’d already eaten dinner. When her mom asked what she ate, she said she had Fucky Fried Chicken.
    When my kids were growing up, we referred to it by either name. Or we just combined the two. Who wants Fucky Fried Chicken Sandals?

    When my son was about 4 years old, we had a dog that was half Cocker Spaniel and half Spitz. He had beautiful long wavy white fur and big dark eyes. People always wanted to know what type of dog he was. My son would proudly pipe up, “Nicky is half a Cocker Spaniel and half a Bitch!” My mother-in-law was not amused.

  97. Well, this isn’t just using the wrong word – and it’s probably politically incorrect – but my husband, my then 2-yr-old son, and a couple of friends of ours were having dinner at Steak & Ale. They have a large salad bar and you serve yourself. My son was several steps ahead of me at the salad bar and when I got back to the area our table was in, I found my son standing in front of a booth – pointing, laughing and saying, “look mommy – munchkins.” I was horrified and trying to hold back hysterical laughter at the same time. I bent down close to his ear and said, “if you say anything else, I’m going to beat the shit out of you (still trying not to laugh out loud) when he says, “mommy’s going to beat the shit out of me – while he laughed maniacally. Embarrassing Moment. One of Many.

    My friend, who always wears Crocs, noticed our new boss was wearing Crocs. Her comment- I’m a huge cock fiend, too!

    Sheepishly, I will admit that I thought “Mareseatoatsanddoeseatoatsandlittlelambseativy…” was just a nonsense song well into my 30s.

  102. SO funny…I’ve been reading a few at a time to extend the fun.
    My first concert was seeing Three Dog Night. My mom asked “Who are you seeing…One Dead Dog?” 😁 And I have a friend who thought the “wind chill factor” was the “windshield factor.” 😊

  103. My sister via text: What’s that Beatles song where they keep telling someone to buy crack?
    Me replying: I’m pretty sure the Beatles didn’t perform a song about crack cocaine.
    My sister: Yeah they did. They keep screaming at this guy JoJo to “buy crack”!
    Me: …Get Back?
    My sister: No! BUY CRACK.
    Me: Look, I don’t know what the hell you’re listening to, but the song “Get Back” is by the Beatles and they’re telling JoJo to GET BACK, not BUY CRACK. And it had to do with immigration, not crack rock.
    My sister: …I’ll text Dad.

    When I was in 10th grade, my biology teacher asked me what I could see in the microscope. I said microscopic orgasms…. ( meant organisms).

    Hi Jenny, I just finished your book Furiously Happy, and let me tell you, I could NOT stop laughing the entire time! I do not personally have any mental health issues (maybe I do but that’s another story) but I am a grown adult child of a mother who has them, un-diagnosed of course because one, shes of Hispanic decent (like there are no crazy Mexican-American’s out there) and because she is “old school” and she doesn’t talk about those things. ANYWAY, I once heard my mom keep asking me for the “Flying raisin killer” which she kept saying, and I kept trying to understand (with frustration) but then my dad walked into the dinning room and casually said “It’s the stupid fly swatter, just give it to her”. Your newest Big Fan!

  109. I was having a tough day and my very proper friend from Dublin, told me to “Keep my pecker up”. I couldn’t talk because I was cry laughing , but finally explained to her that over here, peckers were something else entirely, and we keep our chins up in the US. She was mortified!

  110. Last week, I asked my husband to check the “salt machine” before he left on a trip. He said, “I sure will.” Thank goodness he knows me so well. (In other words, I asked him to check the salt level in the water softener.)
