    Once at the aquarium, my mother had to use the bathroom when my father and I were in the gift shop. She couldn’t find her way back to the shop after, so she asked an employee, but she asked him where the “garbage shop” was. She caught herself and said “whoops, sorry” but the employee was apparently like “That’s okay, I think it’s garbage too”. So now I think of gift shops as ‘garbage shops’. LOL

    I had the pleasure of seeing a live production of the Wizard of Oz with Eartha Kitt as the Wicked Witch and an elderly Mickey Rooney in the role of the Wizard. He was either drunk or senile when, at the end of the show as Dorothy is getting ready to leave, he turns to her companions and says “You… STICKMAN…” A very confused Scarecrow played along. I’m guessing it wasn’t the first time he had messed up his lines.

Yesterday, the missus and I went to a new coffee place in town (staffed totally by hipsters–but super friendly hipsters), and after spending a few minutes perusing the menu, I decided to go with something that I was sure I’d love and relayed my order to the missus so she could order for us. Except, she told them I wanted a “Salted Camel”. They were nice about it, but I think they started to become concerned for our dog that was with us…

  58. When I lived in south Florida, I used to tutor college students who would come into NOVA’s Language Arts Center for help. I worked with students from freshmen to grads. They were an international bunch. I had one geeky, sweet guy from Beijing who came in regularly to have me help him with his dissertation on computer partitioning, and we’d spend the last 15 minutes on his notebook of English slang and sometimes on pronunciation. He once pointed to a word, “count,” asking how to say it. I started by asking him to say “ow.” He said, “Ow.” I said, “Now add a ‘C’ onto the front—cow.” He said, “Cow.” I said, “Okay, now put the sound ‘NT’ on the end—count.” He said, “Cunt.” I said, “Count!” He repeated himself, “Cunt.” It went on like that, rising in volume: “Count,” “Cunt,” “Count,” “Cunt!” “COUNT,” “CUNT!” until the whole center had to be hearing him. I couldn’t take it anymore and said, “Okay, we have to stop. That’s a really bad word.”

There was an X in it and I could not come up with xylophone (even though I was picturing the instrument in my head) and instead blurted out xenophobia. Which he clearly knew the meaning of, but not the spelling, since he huffily asked me if I meant Zulu. X is also X-ray, which is both more universally understood and less mortifying to mess up slightly.
