You know Zelda I have a funny tale about the expression "Being challenged". As english is not my first language I at first misunderstood the expression the first time I heard it.
I was talking to person on the internet and for some reason I cannot remember we came to talk about Tour de France and how tough you would have to be just to complete one of the mountain stages.
During this he says that he would be far to horizontally challenged to ever ride so far on a bike. I then asked him what was wrong with his eyes.
At least making a fool of myself taught me that challenged in this sense is an euphemism.
