”Borrowing the Bathroom"

Today I had an appointment with my optometrist.

I went early because someone turned off the water in my condo...
I hate it when I can't wash my hands.

Anyway, so as soon as I signed in, I asked the receptionist:

"Can I borrow your bathroom?"


Later I realized that I did it again.

I used the English translation of the Japanese way to ask.

In Japanese we say "kariru," which translates to "borrow."


I don't know about other bilingual people, but I tend to do this many times.

Like saying "bread ear" instead of saying "bread crust."

Sigh. It's embarrassing.
