Today I was lunching with my grandkids, and as often happens I have cute names for them which change from time to time.
The one I used today was "Goose" - i.e. I sometimes call her a "bit of a Goose". Just to soften that I added "Gorgeous" in front of it. So far, so good I hear you say?
Problem came when I abbreviated it, and said "Hi GG " .... at which point she looked really shocked and said ... "What did you say??!!"
So I repeated it and her brother cracked up, and she kept looking stunned.
Turns out they both learn Chinese, and in basic Chinese "GG" means "penis" !!!!
Not a good idea to call your 12 yo grandaughter a penis. !!!!
