Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb, sfuggire, which can mean to slip one’s mind. It usually refers to forgetting an idea or concept — in our example below, Giovanni completely forget the fact that he was supposed to buy milk. Notice how it is used in the context below:
Annamaria: Hai comprato il latte?
Giovanni: Oh diamine! Mi è completamente sfuggito!! Lo comprerò dopo.
Annamaria: Did you buy the milk?
Giovanni: Oh darn! It completely slipped my mind!! I will buy it later.
