PPP? To me that means Purchasing Power Parity, which is one of the ways to measure GDP, thought I doubt a Latin teacher would be talking about that. :P

My sister (18) browsing through H&M catalogue:
'I want to be pregnant! The clothes are so pretty :D'

A few hours after she said (about a glass)
'It's not dirty at all! It's just a little dirty.'

Said something that made me feel really dumb today. Was calling to set up an interview for an internship this summer in virigina (so a 5 hour drive from here), and i asked for an address so I could get directions.  The lady got confused and was like, oh, no it's a phone interview, you don't need to come all the way up here! :P :wall:

My mother: He's my father, give me the phone! :P

My mother evidently doesn't like it when I receive unbirthday wishes from my grandfather. :P

My younger sister, saying to one of her friends that she didn't need a ride to swim practice, she left a message on their phone: (she was tired, and wasn't thinking)
"Hi, this is tori, I don't need a swim..... i mean practice, I mean...... bye" :P

I'm rather fond of rum and coke, though it has now been ages since I have had any. Only occasionally do I have a drink. :)
coke doesn't have alcohol

A girl in most of my classes *sounding as though she's reading from a paper*: What's the ind-i-ca-tive?


She calls me to ask me this. On a Sunday. :P During vacation. :P While I'm studying. *sighs* Even if the answer weren't so blatantly obvious (keep in mind that we constantly go back to studying moods in my German class (not to mention French and English) and said girl would know this if she paid even the slightest bit of attention), it would still be rude. Hasn't anyone heard of wikipedia?

I explain and use an example in the present tense.
She then asks if <insert the same example in the perfect tense> is also indicative.
After which I affirm that it is, she asks me to define the terms reflexive, transitive and intransitive verbs. ::)

*sighs*

My dad on why tethering through his pager doesn't always work: "It has some bad memories from having previously connected."

On another note, in defining transitive vs. intransitive, you should have dived into a discussion of transitivity, ergativity, ditransitivity, and morphosyntactical alignment in general. (See, I've heard of wikipedia. :P)
