I had a googly eye moment when Stéph's Grandma said what I thought was "sur-phoquer" to me.


It turns out that she said "suffoquer", which, besides meaning suffocate, it also means stupified.


Yeah, the "F" word is like nothing here. I have heard adults and kids alike say it as if they were saying something as innocent as "pain". Even though I try to explain why the word in considered vulgar in English, my French friends and family don't understand what all the fuss in about.
