Silly Princesse

I have a spot.

It's small and very pimple-like and is situated on my shoulder.

***

"Can I squeeze your button?" Says FP.

"Mmm..." I sidle up to him, thinking it's some sort of sexual innuendo. "Mais oui, avec plaisir mon amour."

He reaches for my shoulder and pinches me.

"Ouch!" I push him away. "What are you doing?"

"I squeeze ton bouton," he replies.

Oh. Bouton means a zit. He wanted to squeeze my spot. Not my button.

Silly Princesse.

I love the combination of French and English you speak! Oh well, maybe next time Princesse :)
I spoke a combination of English and Czech with my Japanese flatmate, which was working well until she knocked on my door and I was, well, in a compromising position. I started yelling "no, no, no! Don't come in!" But did you know that one of the Czech words for yes is "no"? I think the tone of my voice made my meaning quite clear, thankfully!

Squeezing each other's spots, now THAT is love!!

Princesse Ecossaise said...

Ghosty is it because you're wondering what the button might be had it not been a spot? :-D Or perhaps you're wondering about Despina's 'compomising position'? I am too!

Despi that one sounds like a very close one! Thats insane that a czech word for yes is no - how confusing!!!

Sugar, the same thought crossed my mind, however last december he attacked a pluke on my face that turned into an infected cyst...Now I'm not so sure it's done entirely out of love.

my girlfriend does that stuff all the time. Its weird. Is is some vestigial grooming instinct from back when ppl were still apes or what?


hmmm

worsehalf is proud to tell anyone and everyone that he SAVES his spots for me to squeeze, romance. especially when i haven't seen him for a week and shuffle over for a cuddle only for him to stick his face towards me and proclaim "look, sqeeze that one". smashing.

Ghosty said...

Princesse, I'm 48 years old. There's no wondering on either score. :P

The rest of you zit-popping people ... I have one word for you:

EWWWW!!!

Despina said...

"Pluke" - brilliant word dear!
Oh heck, Eliza.
A friend of mine had an ex who liked nothing better than for her to climb on his back, armed with her tweezers, and pull out the offending hairs...
If I say I wasn't alone in my compromising position, does that clarify? ;)

Merde. I should have warned you. French do like to squeeze zits, it's a national sport. Sorry... :$

Despina said...

Where's the Princesse gone? Hope you're OK - hugs for you xxx

ColbyPants said...

she's just off having way more fun being way more cool than us. Thats all.

The Horns and the Hawk said...

so, no offense to you and FP, i mean, if zit popping works in your guys' relationship, take the ball and run, i mean, it seems to work for my parents' marriage, but i hope i never get caught up in something like that. i fear my gag reflex will reduce me to a puddle.

Ghosty said...

Yoo hoo, Princesse! We know you love your FP, but we're feeling all neglected! Stop squeezing each other's spots and tell us what's going on!

Despina said...

Horns, I saw my parents snogging yesterday, they were trying to "outdo" me and the Jezmister, it was horrible!
