Digressing about the trouble of learning languages.

I barely spoke English when I got a backfocusing Planar 85 f/1.2 for Contax RTS. I went to the shop, tried to explain the problem with a slide I took of my wife, and instead of saying "I was focusing on her left eye" I said "I was f..king her right eye". In New England they are very polite, no one laughed.
Anyway, even 34 years later, when I read the word "focusing"  I have to remember my misadventures learning English.
