Faux Trot

So DJ Pups flew over from Sydney for my birthday shindig this weekend. We were chatting away while we were getting ready for the part-ay. We were talking about the predilection of a friend of ours to always put her foot in it, and cause offence without meaning to.

DJ Pups said, "But god bless her; that could be any one of us. I mean, I know I'm always making faux pas."

What I meant to say: I hear you, sistah. Hallelujah and amen. I do the same thing all the time.

What I said: Exactly!
