Today one of my Kinders said to me:

“My finger foot hurts.”

Me: “Your finger foot? Do you mean your toe?”

Kinder: “Yes, My thumb toe hurts.”

Me “What happened to your big toe?”

English is not the first language of this student, but she doesn’t let that stop her. And she’s clearly very inventive. :)

ETA: A Farsi speaking friend on Facebook says that toe is “finger foot” and the big toe is called the Farsi equivalent of thumb. So there you go. :)
