You know when you are writing to someone and something feels just...I don't know...off? Well, I was having one of those moments yesterday as I wrote an email about toilet paper (let's not even get into why I spend my time writing about toilet paper...).
I find that the longer I live in France, the more I make mistakes in English. I'm always Googling words to verify my spelling or my where/wear - their/there/they're - it's/its - who's/whose. It's rough.
It makes me wonder about myself...could I be losing my English? I often have words on the tip of my tongue but just can't quite remember how to say something. I know the word exists but ...ehhh...nope, can't find it. I'm just now thinking of a word I was searching for during a conversation this week - it has just now popped into my head: pro rata. Only took me two days to find it! sheesh.
But back to the toilet paper...
I can now say with complete confidence that my most embarrassing moment yet is when I sent an email to a client and then realized (after the fact, bien sur) that I had called it a role of toilet paper about four times in the email. Oh yes, yes I did.
