On Friday I went to a most delightful lunch with blog friends to celebrate suedonym's birthday. While in line to order my food, I was chatting with Geo. I noticed that one of the female servers there was quite pretty--one of those natural beauties who would look great in any situation. I pointed her out to Geo, commenting on how lovely I thought she was. Geo agreed, saying, and I quote:
"Yes, she looks like a star from a foreign film."
I didn't hear the "f" in "foreign," and I didn't hear a bisyllabic word. I heard a monosyllabic word beginning with "p" and rhyming with "corn."
I was understandably shocked, which made me start to laugh. But I lost it completely when Geo said, "I'm trying to think which movie it was."
Geo was confused. Why was I so entertained? Then I said, "Geo! I had no idea you were into [p]--- films!"
"NO, Julie! That's not what I said! I said 'For-eign films,' not [p]--- films!"
Poor Geo. I can be such a tease, and she put up with me so well. I may not ever let her live it down.
