“JAY SWEE ALLAY O TWOILET SEE VU PLAY!!” …needless to say, I didn’t do very well in French class. ;)
Given what I know about the “fact” checking done (or not done) in movies and tv shows (*cough* the god awful, historiclly inacurate costumes and props used in the new Book of Negroes mini series being as an example *cough*) I’d prop it unto bad fact checkers/bad writing. But it’s just history right…why would anyone
want to portray that well. :/
A lot of this list is very familiar to me (like the unnecessary $1-$2 item being a special treat). I remember a “home surgery” when I was 11. I had accidentally slammed the door on my finger. We put ice on it, but over the week it swelled up to a dangerous size, and started to colour up. My parents were afraid I could lose the finger. We lived outside of town and absolutely could not afford the gas to get to the hospital (and ambulances were $130). Dad sanitized his drill, and slowly drilled through the nail to release the blood.
Response to 22 Horrendous Breakup Stories:
We had been dating seriously for two years, and had even talked about marriage. He had graduated and couldn’t find a full time job, and I still had a year of university left, so we decided to do long distance for a year so he could go teach English in Korea (good money there). Had a tearful goodbye at the airport, then didn’t hear from him for a month and a half. Didn’t even email or call me to let me know he had made it safely. He left in January, and skyped me at the end of March to let me know he wanted to break up. He got another girlfriend 2 weeks later. I think they’re still together.
