This is supposed to be a series about what I’ve been reading. However, I have to interrupt my little series because I can’t stop laughing.
I feel the need to confess, in addition to reading, I do a little watching…. That is TV, Baby. And while I am not proud of it, sometimes I just have to share.
While I noticed that weeks ago, as did probably everyone who watches Pr0ject Runway, it just didn’t seem like enough to base a blog post on. But, as we learned last night, at least he is not a “one way monkey,” um, er “one trick pony.”
I know it is not nice to make fun of people who utter mixed up idioms, especially if English is their second language.
So, I am choosing to think that I am laughing with Dmitry, not at him.
Up until last night the funniest idiom mix up I had heard was when I tried to explain the concept of “Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians” to our friend Jean-Michele. He was confused… but mostly because he thought I was saying, “Too many Sheep, not enough Indians.”
For the rest of the day I will try to keep my One Way Monkey in check while making sure the Sheep to Indian ratio is appropriate.
