I wrote a little while back that I thought it was worth just saying what you mean and, you know, doing what you say you’ll do. The older I get, the more I find this more necessary.
But, there are some times when you just can’t say what you mean… I guess? Some of these examples were really funny — every culture has their own set of culturally-bound colloquialisms.
Phrase: Let’s have lunch sometime!
Meaning: I don’t want to see you again.
Example: “There’s still so much more I want to talk to you about!” // “Yeah, let’s definitely have lunch sometime!“
LOL — these are great.
