Stupid things your significant other says.

This idea started with me telling my wife that I tried to eat a lemon last night and the flavor was too strong.

“There is too much lemon in my lemon.”

I honestly think my wife says nothing "stupid". However...

English is not her native language. In fact, it's her fourth, after Polish (native), Russian, and French. We often have fun when she stumbles over a new inconsistency in English vocabulary or grammar. A few months ago, while we were cooking dinner, she paused thoughtfully and asked:

"If the plural of 'goose' is 'geese', is the plural of 'asparagus'... 'asparageese'?"

Let's NOT get into my own gaffes trying to learn Polish...

"I do" - I bet she regrets that.

I find that to be an endearing quality in some women, no idea why... it's just cute.

Why don't you pee in the shower? It all ends up in the same place.

In college I was briefly dating a woman for whom English was a third language, (after Russian and Spanish). One day she looked up at me thoughtfully asked: "How long are you?"

Then once she caught on to why I was laughing so hard, she got PO'd at me.

I've done some real doozies learning French. Years ago, hollered across a room full of people in a loud voice "leave me alone" (what I thought I said) everyone started laughing/gave me some horrified looks. What I actually said... "lick me" Oops.

I knew of a guy who married a woman from Mexico. He made an effort to learn Spanish so he could engage in conversation when they visited her relatives in Mexico. One day they were sitting down at dinner with her family, and the conversation turned to the recent cold weather. In Spanish, he intended to say:

"Yes, I can feel it in my bones."

Unfortunately, instead of "huesos" (bones), he said "huevos" (eggs), which is also slang for "testicles".

What sort of situation were you in that required you to tell a room full of french people to leave you alone?
