Phrase-ology and anachronisms
I'm a nurse IRL so when I hear the term "prone" I'm supposed to imagine someone face down, lips glued to the floor. The medical term for what I actually envision is "supine", lying on your back with eyes to the stars. Instead of me reinforcing real life into my gaming world, I've found myself at work second-guessing the correct terminology because my dopey mind learned it here imagining incorrectly first.
Not here, but another IRE game, I started incorporating words like "hence" and "discern" into IRL conversations. NOT INTENTIONALLY. I wish I could say hilarity ensued (haha "ensued" is another one!) but usually I was met with genuinely worried glances.
Anyone else had embarassing moments?
