I was staying with a family in Belgium and after a great meal, the wife asked me (in French) if I wanted more to eat. I answered in French, "Non, merci. Je suis plein." (literally "No, thank you. I am full") Everyone laughed. They explained to me that, while they understood what I had meant, in Belgium "Je suis plein" means "I'm pregnant" It's a euphemism of which I had not been aware. I can assure you that, as a man, I am not now nor do I have any possibility of becoming pregnant.

I believe you, sure!

Here in Sicily there are even between locality too close: in the city where I now they say "an mòviti" to say "stay here", 20 km above it means "don't move!", the exact contrary... Smile
