If gay people don’t use the phrase “I cant think straight around you” as a pick up line. I feel like we have missed a genuinely great opportunity.
one of my main nicknames courtesy of my family is “emmy” and my uncle was like “what if you marry a guy named anthony whose nickname is tony then you’d be emmy and tony”
and then “what if his last name was award”
and then my cousin put in “if you have a son you could name him oscar”
emmy, tony, and oscar award
oh my god
this was me and the word “facade”
OMG. “Niche,” anyone?
I run into this so often with words that I’ve only ever read, and when it comes time to employ them in a sentence I realize that I actually have no idea how to pronounce it irl.
