A lady shared a story of how she had used the wrong word during her family dinner as her family were discussing about a controversial topic and in the heat of the moment, she used the wrong word.
She had wanted to say the word ‘organism’ but said ‘o*g**m’ instead, leading to everyone on the dinner table either looking embarrassed or laughing.
Here is the story
This dinner wasn’t for anything special, it was just a get-together for me and my family.
Alright, so we were having a normal conversation and a slight debate regarding the right and wrongs of getting animals euthanised. I am a supporter of anti-euthanasia, and my older sister and her husband had their reasons for opposing.
We always have debates over controversial topics over the dinner table in a fun light as our whole family was quite opiniated on certain issues but at the end of the day we would always respect each other’s views.
This was what made our family gatherings interesting.
So in the middle of the debate and in a bid to defend my point on why I feel that animals should not be euthanised, I hastily said something which I had already intended to say but it came out in the wrong manner as I had used one word differently.
I had meant to say “EVERY LIVING ORGANISM IS EQUAL!” but guess what came out eventually.
“EVERY LIVING O*G**M IS EQUAL!” I shouted. It was quiet for a few seconds, but then we carried on with the discussion like nothing had happened. My dad told me to not yell, but I could just tell that the entire table knew what I had said. My Eleven year old little sister was snickering after I shouted, and my sister and brother in law’s face turned red from embarrassment.
Well, that was a night to remember.”
