Word association

In an effort to avoid becoming the size of a house, I keep a variety of "heathy" snacks at my desk at work. 
These include unsalted almonds.
About once a month, my female co-workers amuse themselves with dialogue such as:

"I like your nuts, Mouse. They are not too salty"
"Where are you nuts? Put them in my hand"
etc etc.

All very amusing, I'm sure you'll agree.

That led to a discussion about nuts and the fact that a brazil nut is not a nut, but a fruit

& then being of an enquiring frame of mind, I looked up Brazilian which led me to the disambiguation page which led me to 

I wasn't expecting pictures.

Given everything I have learned about waxing from Wiki, I now completely understand why you might have a misunderstanding at the salon, especially if the salon workers have English as a second language (thanks for sharing, Evie).


  1. Blimey, I don't think those pictures were really necessary...

    I like your co-workers' sense of humour.

  2. I had no idea it looked so unattractive from some angles. Maybe I should rethink my my, ahem, design.

  3. Lottie,
    The girls I sit near are very funny and they keep me amused

    Go for an American, that looks nice. Tended without being over manicured....
    Or maybe a landing strip.....

  4. Ouch, still hurting when thinking about it.
