Entry 2

Entry 2

The phrase, "I wouldn't feed that to my dog" is not used exclusively by dog owners. It is simply a reference to a low standard of food.

Dear Internet,

Ah, one of my many humiliating misunderstandings. It always feels like such a blessing to be part of the human race when making a mistaking an idiom for a truth is the cause for hysterical laughter and teasing /sarcasm/. I am not stupid. I think logically. Yes, that means that sometimes I misinterpret your meaning when you use an obscure phrase or idiom. No, that does not mean that you can mock me. I get that it can be slightly amusing and you might not be able to help laughing a little, but please just let it go. Believe it or not, I too have feelings and they are hurt when you laugh at me. It's humiliating enough as it is.

From Sarah.

  1. What? It doesn't just apply to dog owners?
    Thank you so much for posting this. You've probably saved me major embarrassment.
