Ever heard the expression, "brainfreeze"? As in, when you just can't put together a coherent thought?
Evidently, I suffer from such a condition to quite an extreme degree!
When I got back from the hospital yesterday, the babysitter wanted to know what the doctor had said. "Ну, кажется, что у меня может быть проблема с сосулами в мозге..." (Talking about how it appears there might be a problem with the blood flow in the arteries/veins in my brain/head).
Her eyes opened WIDE.
All of the sudden I realized that I'd truly experienced "brainfreeze"!
Instead of saying "сосуди" (arteries/veins), I'd said "cосули" (icicles)!
