Why am I not surprised?

Yesterday, we were running errands when ~K~ pipes up. "I know what
"Sacré bleu!" means."

Me: "Oh really?"

~K~: "Yes. It means D* A* M* N* I* T*"

Me (who actually has a few years of French classes under my belt as well as a French sister-in-law who has taught me several French oaths): "And just where did you learn that?"

~K~: "From the movie 'Van Helsing'."

And then it hit me. I'm not the only one in the family who watches foreign language television. ~K~ has developed the habit of playing DVDs in French or Spanish and then reading the English Subtitles.

Me: "So in the movie they said 'sacré bleu' and the closed captioning read 'Damn it'?"

~K~: "Yes."

Me: "Interesting."
