You: "Here, try out this ice cream I'm making!" Me: Um, Okay...? *tries it and valiantly holds it in, then somehow manages to swallow* You: "What do you think? Does it need more chili powder?" Me: "Chili...powder"? What flavor is this? You: "Fully-Loaded Chilly Cheese Dog! Isn't it just scrumptious?" Me: *eyes crossing, getting brainfreeze for the "other" reason* Me: Jus' a sec'. I think it's reloading. I'll give you my second opinion in jus' a- *horks, then hurls* Yeah, um, interesting...
"Interesting" can be a sort of social safeword. I think some peeps - especially the polite ones - tend to use it as a filler, if they don't have anything nicer to say. As if it means, "Not to blow your kindness and enthusiasm out of the water and thanks for the gesture/thought, but I really don't know what to say. I'll probably remember this moment with a sort of awkward fondness, years from now. If we're still on speaking terms then and not, in fact, mortal enemies trying to poison each other..."
Yeah! It was a really funny story though, just cuz the cashier was such an ass about it. they sat on a chair with their legs on the counter while reading a magazine until my teacher walked up to them. then they glared at her. omfg it was such an amazing story.
Not everyone is like that, but it's kind of interesting that those people exist and there are actually quite a few of them. someone wouldn't sell her 6 baguettes cuz she didn't say 6 right in french LOL
I know! The Romance languages. c: But I've heard that it's closer to italian and spanish than french or the other major romance languages o: Idk tho.
I see I see. I know a few native french speakers here in 'murica but they're all assholes -m-
Haha, true P: They're still really rude though. Or so I'm told.
Thanks! C: I find languages fascinating and really fun c: I've never tried portuguese but I hear it's pretty similar to italian and spanish? Idunno though. I don't have anywhere to improve any of my languages, though :c I don't know anyone who speaks french or japanese as well or better than me at all :c which is disappointing.
I saw in the languages thread that your first language isn't English. You might have said this and I just missed it, but what is your first language? Is it Spanish or Portuguese or something else? P: Sorry, I'm just curious.
