TMI averted!

The terms Generic and Genetic are frequently accidently interchanged.

However, other words can be as well.

A friend recently made a statement to a group of us at our morning YMCA round table, "I have a family Genital defect."

I think all sitting around the table quickly got prepared for what was to follow.

He went on to explain, "I have very little flexibility in my ankle joint, like a lot of my other family members."

Phew! Genetic, not genital.

We all laughed and were glad to have avoided a case of too much information so early in the morning!
