Way OT: Social intercourse Don't worry, this isn't a dirty thread (yet =P) It happened like this. I was over at my friends house for the first time, and didn't know what to expect of his parents. Were they the over-mothering type, who doesn't even let their son go outside without a comprehensive security check, were they lazy bogans, or were they totalitarians? I amed to find out. I arrived, came in, and did what normal friends do. We played PS2, we watched TV, my bud is an enormour wrestling fan, so we watched some of his wrestling dvd's. That night at dinner, I went for it. I told his parents that we had engaged in social intercourse. (At this point let me clarify, social intercourse means talking with somone.) An awkward silence ensued. His parents looked at each other, and then came the massive speech. Turns out his parents are Mormons, and as a result, they are quite prudent about things like sex. After I received a five minute lecture, I quietly told them what I had really said, and what it really meant. Needless to say, they don't like me too much now. Another example, our family are good friends with another family at church. They came over for dinner one evening. Now, they are a almost-at-retiring-age couple, and they enjoy the 'finer' things in life, they have a fine jazz music collection, they are wine buffs, they own a nice house, etc... Anyways, that night at dinner, they were telling us about they were part of an 'exlusive wine club', I turned to my mum and whispered, "yeah, alcoholics anonymous." My mum had to leave the room in order to contain her laughter. I was wondering, when have you said something as a joke, and had it come out wrong, or accidentally say something inappropriate.
