Mensagem:  It's funny how even innocent expressions can pick up double meanings over the years. The mother of a friend was rather innocent. As a supervisor of a team of nurses, she was criticized by an inspector for permitting nurses to use suggestive language on the job. The problem, Alexandre, is that she didn't understand the double meanings, nuances, and downright obscene language. As she was telling us about the incident, she added proudly, "But I know what 'horny' means!"
