Those damn confusing Middle French words will screw you up every single time.
Duvet – (origin Middle French)
Bidet- (origin Middle French)
In getting ready to go on a trip, my wife dictated a list of items we needed to do/get. One of them was to clean the comforter. So in my list I wrote, “Clean Duvet”. She hadn’t ever used the term duvet and thought I had thrown a joke in the list and when I questioned her, she said pretty much what the cartoon implies.
