Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Bulgarian word for love is "obich" which in English sounds like "oh bitch" ;-). I remember once I had difficulties convincing an American that I didn't mean to offend her by using this Bulgarian word in her presence.

And let me say that this is a great, great diary! Bravo for the idea!

I've got another one just like that, but it's a little bit x-rated (warning! warning!). This friend of mine once went out with a Japanese girl, and in Japanese "hai" means "yes". Well she was saying "hai, hai" throughout the process of love-making ... and this freaked him out because in French "aie" (pronounced just about the same way as "hai") is an interjection that means "ouch" (as in "ouch that hurts").

Hahaha! Very good one- did he stop to ask her if she was all right? ;-)

Well they went out for a few weeks, so he figured it out at some point. But he told me that even once he knew, it was still kind of disturbing.

Hmmmm, from my own experience with Japanese girls,... (I stop here, I just remember I am one of Dr. Blunders.)

I will become a patissier, God willing.
