Last night I was at a dinner, and the (French) woman next to me asked me, “Vous allez regarder le match avec nous après?”
I was puzzled. “Le… match?”
She became flustered. “Je veux dire, le débat!”
I can understand her mistake.
Note if you don’t speak French: ‘Match’ usually refers to a sports game. She was asking if I was going to watch the game with them after dinner. Now, I am not a sports fan, so it is entirely conceivable that I wouldn’t have known about a big game last night. However, she was actually thinking of the presidental debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
