something is really gyrating on my nerves

sometimes I think I’m lucky to have an Italian husband. I can overlook all his English errors, considering it’s his third language. German is second, and he speaks a pretty mean French, too. I must brag.

anyway, I’ve been out of America so long I’m sure I’m making gaffes left and right. But you should check out the bloopers at the site for “egg corns”, mistaken reinventions of known words and expressions.

You should visit the southern US, Sarah.

Of course, you could be fixin to do that already... if you've got a traveling notion.

I'm not bad-mouthing southerners, but their words have addled my onliest sore nerve.

I'd better stop before I get my engine crunked and I get all torn up.

All I like is one murdered sentence more and I'll go insane. Ganz und gar.

Sarah! I should read your blog more often. I'm having a good time over here.

How long has it been since you've set foot in the U.S.?

I've lived here all my life, but I don't feel that I've actually ever been to America, probably because I've never been anywhere else.

Hey, can't wait to check that baby out. My husband is good for some of those too...English is his fourth or fifth language also.
