The other day I was having lunch with a friend, and don't ask me how we got onto to this topic, but he asked me how I wanted to die. I turned it on him, and without pausing he says:

"Vreau sa fiu rapit."

Understand rapit as kidnapped. Blink. Remember who I'm talking to. Realize he's saying raptured. 

What makes it crazier is if you don't know Romanian you probably thought he was saying raped since as far as I know it comes from really similar (or the same?) Latin. The funny thing is that if he had meant kidnapped, he'd surely have a story ready for you about sharing the Gospel with them as the last thing he ever did.

Anyway. Two and a half years later and this stuff still happens every week.
