Take knitting for example. I taught myself how to knit using French books and one of them had the terms translated in various languages. I was able to use it to work with English knitting magazines like Vogue Knitting.
Although I started learning in French I have noticed I work more with the English terms except for counting. The other day I was knitting the lace slouchy hat and realized I was counting my increases in French. I thought it was just a one time thing but no; I count my rows and number of stitches in French.

Another funny aspect of being bilingual is when it comes to movies. Don't tell me the French name of an American movie. I wouldn't know which one you are talking about.
So, bilingual readers, what are some funny aspects you have from being bilingual?
