More C-isms

Sorry for the lack of posts - work was insane for the past few weeks, and now C and I have been in the US since last Friday. We have agreed to try to speak only in English while we are here, making it "English Sunday" every day. And hilarity ensues....

Me to C: Mmm, you smell nice.
C: Thank you, it's my natural flavor.

While watching HIYM the other night:
Robyn: Oh come on, you know "Baking cookies" is really a synonym for a booty call.
C: Attends....C'est quoi un "booby call??".

Upon coming home from work:
C: It was so hot today that I was bare-bellied.
Me: lollll
C: Naked bellied??
Me: Bare-chested!!!

While driving around town:
C: What are you eating?
Me: A tootsie roll.
C: You're eating candy??
Me: So what?
C: But candy is for kids!!
Me: Not here it isn't.
C: Do other adults eat candy?
Me: Of course.
C: Do your co-workers eat candy?
Me: I'm sure they do.
C: Does your mom eat candy?
Me: Um, probably.
C: That's so strange!!

And lastly, at the Green Mill for supper:
C: Why would they serve ice cream with the bread??

Aww! So cute!! I have the same experience with my German boyfriend... The other day we were talking about how fibre aids in digestion and he said "Yes, fibre is good for your testicles"... LOL!!! He meant to say "intestines"... Poor thing! He's adorable!

ummm...I'm with C on the last one. Why the hell would they serve sliced bread with ice cream? Not that I would complain because I love both those things, but I'm confused as to what they are doing packaged together...

Tell C that Max eats candy all the time and he's a grown up :)

Crystal - I think it's whipped butter, not ice cream :)

Phil ALWAYS says "Shits happen", no matter how many times I correct him.

ahhh...the Green Mill you must be in Minneapolis area! My cousin used to work there ;-)

C is so funny and cute!

Too bad my Frenchy has better English than I do ;-) I still make jokes when he pronounces things wrong but that is very rare these days...

Hysterical! It's the same when we go back to the States. It's rather endearing and I'm sure I sound equally foolish when I try to speak in French.

I always giggle when you post his English expressions. Reminds me when my students would say stuff like "the town is surrounded by big Dicks". (digues)

Ha the booty call reminds me of my ex who loved the idea of the expression, but used to send me messages saying "can we do some booty talking now?"
