Today was just a fun-filled day of miscommuncations.

Paul: I heard there’s this really good dessert I have to try. It’s a banana soaked in some alcohol.
Me: Oh, that’s bananas foster.
Paul: Bananas zoster?
Me: Bananas herpes zoster?
Paul: They need to immunize their bananas.
In the lounge, a conversation that started about biliary atresia led to spiderman’s powers, which led to Seema’s acting out spiderman, which led to a discussion about milking cows and then netsanet talking about eating raw meat.

Seema: Isn’t salami raw?
Erin: No.
Seema: What about beef jerkin?
Me: You mean beef jerky. Jerkin is another word for vest.
Erin: What? Aren’t gherkins pickles?
Me: Yeah, but a jerkin is a jacket. Gherkin is a little pickle.
Seema: I thought it lived in the sea, like seaweed.
Erin: No, that’s an urchin.
Seema: Then what’s a gherkin?!
Me: It’s a little pickle!
