misheard words

Who hasn't heard somebody say something and misunderstood them? It's a very common occurrence, especially in teenagers. Honestly it's happened to me so many times that I can't even think of one that sticks out so much. The only time I can think of is when it was super hot outside. The sun was so strong that you didn't want to do anything at all. It was a Monday morning (Monday's are when the garbage gets taken out). My mom came into my room on at a very early time and asked me to check if the garbage was gone when I got up. When I woke up I couldn't quite remember what she told me but I remembered the word gone, except I interpreted it lawn. So I mowed the lawn. It was brown for awhile. I realized my mistake when my mom called and asked if the garbage was GONE or if the holiday had screwed up the schedule.

This is SO funny! Thanks for sharing it. You certainly are ambitious--I wouldn't have wanted to hear the thing that made more work for me!
