Talking to Dadu on the phone a few weeks ago for our irregular Bengali conversation practice I mangled trying to say my son and I had walked to school that week.
Not only that but looking back I may have mangled it badly enough to have said we went to school ‘on our hands’, though I didn’t fancy checking.
It’s something that never quite sticks in my mind, so I’m blogging about it to remind myself. It’s a short one, that I may expand in the future.
