English term or phrase:You used 慸iversionary pretext抜n a sentence.
揑 slipped put on the diversionary pretext of getting a file. The meeting抯 already started, so get in there!
Explanation: **panyuan, there are some wierd symbols in your text so please excuse me if I read something wrongly. I don't read getting your first part of the text, especially "I slipped put on..."**
This "Wow. You used 'diversionary pretext' in a sentence" sounds sarcastic. Maybe "diversionary pretext" is not a term one uses everyday or maybe this person who said it is well known as a bimbo. (????) It is the "wow" which gives me the feel that this is a loaded sentence.
