How's your hearing?

Asked by Trillian (21106points) March 5th, 2010

Have you ever misheard someone and jumped in to say whatever in response to it, only to find out they had said something completely different? And either felt like a complete idiot, or maybe had to explain something you weren’t ready to explain? Another question made me think of this; Once, in ‘96 or ‘97, my oldest daughter was 12 or 13 at the time; she was leafing through some catalogs. We had to do a lot of catalog shopping while we were in Guam, for the obvious reason. Anyway, out of the blue she very casually said “I need a cock ring.” I felt my jaw drop and freaked. I hollered “What do you need a cock ring for?” She just looked at me weird and said “What’s a cock ring?” Huh? I said; “Didn’t you just say you needed one?” She said “I said Anita Cochran.” Oh. She asked me again “What’s a cock ring?” Now what do I say? Me and my big mouth. Has this ever happened to you?
