You know you've been in yeshiva too long when you try to say a sentence in Hebrew and an Aramaic word comes out instead.

The Israeli I was talking to understood, though.

Once i was speaking to my brother in Hebrew (we went to ‘Ivrit B‘Ivrit-type day schools) at home, and i wanted to ask him to pass me something meihatzad hasheini (from the other side) of the table, but it came out miSitra Ahhra in Aramaic, which has a whole nother set of connotations... :-P
