    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.
