Language Issues

Although I've been fluently speaking Spanish for several years now, I do still make mistakes- and pretty funny ones!

The other day I saw a friend that I hadn't seen in a few days.  The last time I had seen her she had been sick... so here's a little piece of our conversation:

Me: Hola Carol! Como estas?? (Hey Carol, how are you?)
Carol: Muy bien! (Good! Thanks!)
Me: Ah que dicha, ya te sientes mujer? (Oh that's great!  So you're feeling like a woman?)

We looked at each other for a minute, as I realized what I had just said.

Me: Mejor, no mujer!  Ya te sientes mejor? (I mean better!  Not woman!  Are you feeling better?)

We laughed and continued on with our conversation... but it's always funny when mistakes like these happen!
