le pied dans la bouche

classic admissions moment from past summer:

me: "hey, where's that french student who was coming for an interview?"

fellow admissions colleague: "oh you just missed him–he already interviewed and left."

me: "dammit, i was going to french him up!"

fellow admissions colleague: "'french him up?'"

me: "yeah, like talk to him in french and everything."

fellow admissions colleague: "you sure you didn't mean anything else by that?"

me: "it's not kinky because i added the preposition 'up.'"

No comments:

it's not just for the classroom!
