But the words got in the way

After my third trip to the hardware store, I decided to enjoy the unseasonably warm spring, while my husband, Marc, did tile work with his friend. I grabbed my book, and made myself comfortable on the beach. Eventually the weather shifted, becoming more seasonal and chilly.  As I exited the beach, Mike, my favorite security guard was doing his rounds, so I gave him a big hello.

 

“By your lonesome today,” he asked.

 

“Yep,” I replied.

 

“Oh yeah, your husband’s doing construction, right?” He asked.

 

“Yep,” I muttered again. Then I decided to elaborate, “He is busy in the bathroom playing with his friend.”

As soon as the words were out of my mouth, it hit me what I said. “Oh shit!” I exclaimed.  “That didn’t come out right,” I asked.

 

“Um, nope,” Mike replied trying unsuccessfully to hide his laughter.  “But, I knew what you meant.”

 

Don’t you hate when you words come out wrong? Has this happened to you recently?
