Today, my husband told me, “Your brain is so entertaining.” He made this comment after I asked him, “Is there still traffic ahead?” What I meant was, “Is there still construction ahead?” I knew I wasn’t using the correct word, but my mouth just spits out whatever, like it’s too impatient for my brain to catch up.
I just had a wrong number phone call. I told her, “You have the incorrect number.” I kind of said it slowly, because I knew that wasn’t what I’d usually say and I knew it would sound funny, but I couldn’t come up with the word “wrong”. Come on brain! Wake up and use the correct words, please.
