I didn't know any words for “hema” besides failure, so I looked it up in my dictionary. I found a lot of words like: ballup, bloop, botch, bungle, flamer, flub, fluff, gaffe, goof, muff, plonker, snafu.
I wondered which word I should use. I picked up the word that was easy to remember the spelling of and to pronounce. That was the "fluff."
However, this wasn't a right word in that case. Some of my friends pointed out that the word "fluff" doesn't have a meaning of miss nor failure.
Someone failed to do something. It wasn't a serious failure. The others laughed at the person and said, "You failed." It didn't sound serious. Even if you were a counterpart and his/her failure occurred something to you, you would forgive him/her.
Hema has the meaning like them.
If I want to say a "hema" in English, which word should I use?
I already know the word "goof," which a friend of mine taught to me.
If you don't mind, would you suggest an example sentence using the word you pick up?
Thank you for your help.

The other day, I used the word "fluff" in my journal. I thought a "fluff" meant a small failure. In Japanese, we call it "hema." If you use a "hema," it sounds a generous failure. It isn't serious, so I wanted to use a lighter word. You would condone the person who made a mistake like “hema” aga
