I'm afraid of WORMS Roxanne
Who remembers the movie "Roxanne" starring the amazing Steve Martin? NO??? Go tonight and rent it. It's a genuine HOOT and a classic romance at the same time.
Based on the play "Cyrano de Bergerac", large nosed C.D. Bales (Steve Martin) falls for the beautiful Roxanne while she falls for his personality but another man's looks.
Confused? Go.....RENT THE MOVIE!!
My point is....there was a scene where Steve (C.D.) was standing outside of Roxanne's window shouting love lines that another guy was relaying to him through a hidden earpiece. Shy CD was supposed to say "I'm afraid of WORDS Roxanne" but he misunderstood what the guy was saying and said "I'm afraid of WORMS Roxanne". YES....it was very funny!!
So...fess up. What words have you totally gotten wrong - like my mom did with the old country song "Leaving on Tulsa Time". Her version? "Living on Toast and Tang"!!
