I can’t cook a roast.  Just never learnt, and too intimidated to try because if I screw it up that is some expensive meat! Luckily FI makes a mean roast 🙂

I thought the term “the best thing since sliced bread” was “the best think since life spread” until I was about 16

I pronounce Archilles wrong.  My FI thinks it’s hilarious and has tried to correct me many times but I have pronounced it that way for so long I can’t seem to change it in my head.  I think it’s because I read lots as a child and read it many times but never had the need to hear or say it out loud.  I have had that issue with other words too like satchet.

I can’t pronounce stereo or banal without taking a minute to really think about it. 

And there are tons of movies that my peers can’t believe I haven’t seen. Like Goonies, or Star Wars.

Until recently, I didn’t know women had colons too. Guess I confused it with prostate. Oops

I always say “itch an itch” instead of “scratch an itch” and use itch like a verb. It drives DH nuts! I also don’t know how to do lots of beauty/girly stuff like wax, tweeze my eyebrows, put on makeup (besides a little mascara), do a face mask, or blow dry my hair with a roller brush. I’m a very girly person, I just have never tried doing thise things consistently enough to know what the heck I’m doing!
