I love these blogfests, so much fun. This one is all about whoopsies, courtesy of Laurel. (Thanks Laurel.) I can't wait to go through and read all of them.
After reading last night through Jemi's post on MC's in the kitchen, I realized I could have pulled a funnier/lighter moment with Jake messing up. Every time he tries to help Kasia in the kitchen he spills or breaks something--from the first night on. But, when I went through the WIP last week, my mindset was on Kasia.
Now, Kasia doesn't make mistakes. At least not cute little ones. When she messes up, it's big. Really big, like almost divulging a long time deep dark family secret of Jake's, in the middle of a dinner party hosted by his mother and father.
Of course, this also means her whoopsies are major spoilers. I did take out a few sentences and reworked names. Hopefully it doesn't appear too choppy with removed text and it still also makes some sense!
At the dinner party, Jake's mother, Katherine, is parading Kasia around and showing her off, much to Kasia's dismay, and discomfort.
*Katarzyna = Kasia. It's like using Kate for Katherine, etc.
*Jake's mother always adds an endearment onto her son's name (darling, dear, etc) when speaking to him and Kasia has picked up thinking of him as such, in a tongue-in-cheek way, when annoyed.
*Cholera = damn in Polish. At least for Kasia's purposes since the word can translate to a lot of things really.
*Rozumiem = I understand.
