“Non mi ricordo la mia password.”
Shit, is password a girl?
Isn’t there that rule about foreign words used in Italian always being masculine?
Ya, it's definitely a boy. There's a rule about it. IL meeting. IL film. IL computer.
*feeling of complete and utter doom*
But wait, there are always exceptions.
Maybe this is an exception.
Please language God, make this be an exception.
They both sound good to me.
It was probably masculine.
Now I sound like a complete idiot...
I need to redeem my credibility and linguistic skills by saying something really complex.
What can I say?
Oh I know! I’m going to throw in a subjunctive. Yes. That’ll be impressive.
“Penso che sia una buon’idea!”
Take that! Subjunctive master.
Why isn’t this person acknowledging my mastery of Italian?
There are even Italians who don’t use it when necessary and I just did, bow down!
Wait, did I mess up the gender of “idea”?
I can’t believe I’ve studied Italian all these years and I’m having doubts about the gender of “idea”.
I’m the worst.
How is this possible?
I hate this.
I just had that entire conversation in Italian.
I’m a fucking genius.
I wonder if his English is better than my Italian…
I hope he has a super thick accent and can’t use phrasal verbs.
Phrasal verbs in English are hard.
I mean, practically very few non-native speakers can use them like we do.
English is so underrated in difficulty.
Italian verbs are definitely harder though, I should probably study them more.
Yeah, I’m going to study one verb a day, every day, FOREVER.
Who am I kidding…I’d rather go for gelato.
