Language can be hard and stuff

And even if you think you have a great grasp on your native tongue, every once in a while you really have a hiccup and can’t remember a correct word or phrase.

It happens to the best of us! You think Bill Shakespeare never made any mistakes? Trust me, even that guy totally blew it once in a while. There’s even a lost version of Hamlet where he really biffed a lot of the language (that’s a lie, by the way).

Enjoy these posts from people who just couldn’t seem to find the right word…we think you’ll have some good laughs.

1. You did your best…

Don’t beat yourself up about it!

2. Do you know how to ride an animal car?

I sure don’t.

3. Restart the dispenser.

Has a nice ring to it.

4. I love this!

And I will use it from now on!

5. Isn’t that cute?

The hat for the pot.

Gotta be careful with those.
