Its the Big Weekend in North America coming up.. July Oneth is Canada Day [ Dominion Day for the Purists ] and, of course, its Independence Day on the 4th for our cousins to the South, so.. naturally, a few of the hale and hearty have been out practising their drinking skills in anticipation of the ' holidays'.. This 'exercise' lead to the Rocketeer almost becoming toothless in a bar situation when a slip of the tongue [ which I blame on overindulgence of inferior draft lager ] caused a ' mispronunciation' at a critical juncture. to wit: At the bar was a particularly attractive woman in a smallish tank top which made itself amenable to showing off her assets. but it was her limbs which attracted my initial attention, She was sporting a unique set of tatoos on her arms.. heraldic supporters.. a Lion on one bicep and a unicorn on the other [ very patriotic and all , I thought ] so after admiring the artistry opened my mouth to compliment her and the artist when instead of saying " Nice Tats " as my brain intended , I said..." Nice T*ts " .. Lady in question was not amused and neither was her escort, a largish fellow with his own impressive biceps and a homicidal glint in his eye... After much burbling of apologies and an expensive outlay for additional libations I managed to mollify the sensitive souls of these two, claiming slip of tongue due to metal plate in head, alzheimers, and the fact that I'm a congenital idiot. anyone else come to ruin, real or potential, due to misuses of a vowel or word substitution?
