    Granting we often fill in the blanks & assume—by comparing words we know of that sound like or rhyme with—the words we mishear (within context) so to make sense of full sentences, it would be interesting to conduct an experiment wherein the positive or negative charge of the assumed word were noted in relation to the subjects mood, personality type, & the influence of the subjects surroundings/environment.

    It's 3:48am here, I'm super tired, & the above is likely to be the longest sentence ever. Haven't the energy to reconstruct.

    Weather report on radio today
    “Please take note that there is a snowball warning for Calgary and area...”

    Snowfall, I presume.
    Otherwise, well, mitts on boys, let’s do this! ❄️ ⛄️ ⚾️

    Ordered shrimp linguini the other night.

    Bartender comes by to check on me: "Can I get you some garlic mash with that?"

    "Excuse me?"

    What she really said: "Can I get you a garlic knot with that?"

    Later I joked, "Linguini with garlic mash? Like I don't have enough carbs on my plate as it is." We laughed.

    (Music was super loud. My left ear is bad, but I don't usually get "knot" and "mash" mixed up.)

    What I heard my spouse say: “Hey, You’re not feeling any pain today!”

    What he actually said: “Hey! You’re not using your cane today!”

    (during a pt session after surgery which was more complex than expected.)

    So, yes, Nathan. I believe this is a PRIME example of mood/assumed word. I was in agony when he made the comment, and looked at him like he’d lost his marbles. Got a good laugh over it when I realized what he REALLY said.

    I see what you did there, beach woman. Was it mentioned on porpoise? I have an ocean more, if you wish to harbour such things *smilies & waves

    … Quickly, think of a brand of washing detergent.

    Glad I'm not the only one that hears weird. It sure made for interesting conversations at the dinner table!

    What I heard: "He was balled to death."

    What was really said: "He was mauled to death."

    Upon hearing above, I immediately snorted coffee out of my nose. That's a a first for me, and I do not recommend!

    Half-heartedly paying attention to morning news today. The captions were more interesting, as i couldn't help but notice during a segment on appetizers??? (Not sure, but they were discussing what they place on their cheese plates)

    What was said: "marmalade"

    What the captions on the television said: "Harm laid"

    I'll take the marmalade, please. I don't need any harm laid. Especially in advance. "I can do bad all by myself."

    Am I the only one who's confused the "mask debate" with the "masturbate"?

    All over the world, everyone appears to be having the great masturbate.

    Great, I'll never be able to not think that from now on! My poor, uncorrupted brain.

    Narrator: No sooner had Autumn uttered the above, than her wooden nose suddenly grew three feet, a storm broke, and she was struck by lightning.
