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?

3. Restart the dispenser.
Has a nice ring to it.
4. I love this!
And I will use it from now on!
Husband is Colombian and he forgot the word for gas, so he told me to fill up his car with vroom vroom juice

And it’s a cool visual!
My German ex boyfriend couldn’t remember what a caterpillar was called, so it became a walking eyebrow.

7. OH MY GOD.
My best friend is Korean and he didn’t know the word for period so instead it was “that thing that happens every month, destroys the baby house”

8. Foot fingers.
Gotta be careful with those.
Spent a lot of time with a French group in Scotland and one of them dropped a jar. Screamed out “ARGH! My foot fingers!”

9. Unsleep me.
Or whatever it’s called…
