am i the only one who wants to use this to say something completely harmless in latin, while totally freaking out their parents?

 

"i just said 'pass the peas', mom, you can put away the bible and the holy water."

LOL! Except that doesn't work with Catholic parents. They may not catch the whole sentence but they will automatically recognize the Latin. I think there is a Lathin knowledge pathogen that gets inserted at baptism...

I'm slightly obsessed with Latin! I don't think it's because I was raised Catholic, though... it's more of my interest in biology and the origin of words and their literal meanings.

 

If I started speaking Latin around my parents, my dad would probably have flashbacks to his childhood. He went to a Catholic school, where Mass was done the "right" way - in Latin, with the priest's back to everyone, to ensure no one caught on to the fact that God makes no sense.
