Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I didn't want to write this diary, but the words just came out uncontrollably.

My favourite personal verbal blunder:

Several years ago, I was at my girlfriend's place and she had invited one of her friends over (a girl). I hadn't seen her friend in a few months, and so immediately noticed that her nose looked completely different. I immediately snapped "wow your nose looks really great! superb idea to have plastic surgery!". Which it didn't (ie. didn't look great), I was only being polite and blabbering the first thing that came to mind. The girl's reaction: "I fell off a horse".

He, He, I am the first one to recommend it, gagné.
Always happy to read you and great mise en page BTW.

So any funny blunders to share with us (dismiss the parts below this, I don't want them to ruin the light tone of this diary, I was just shocked when I heard the news and saw in it a message to share with anyone around me)?

For some reason I portray you as something of a good verbal blunderer, am I wrong? ;))
