In our house English language is the order, except when she talks to Mama or sister! [biggrin.gif]

Then in your next discussion, try telling Hanna in English she should look in the mirror when she criticizes you... (Not recommended).

I told Lena in dutch. She understood the literal meaning perfect, but the slang.... uhoh [bat.gif]

Don't worry and I have told Hanna several times ....... to look in the mirror and her reply is the same, all the times......

Do you still find me attractive and fancy me? [haha.gif]

So I have nothing much more to say, even if I am angry and burst to laughter! [very_funny.gif]

The joys of using slang and even better using expressions.

Alla and I have a code and before I use an obscure expression I say "English Expression" of course now and again I forget and even when I remember sometimes the expression is translated literally with quite disastrous consequences.
