When you were a kid was there a word or phrase you heard that you totally misunderstood? For example, I once heard someone say “Pulitzer Prize” which I thought was “Pull it! Surprise!” Like that makes sense. Any funny misunderstandings out there?
I asked my mom why my classmate’s dad could do the readings at church even though he wasn’t a priest, and she said that laymen could do the first two readings. I thought the term was “late men,” so for years I would rush to get to church because I was afraid we’d have to get up in front of everyone if we were late.
