Prompt: Communication breaks down when words are misused. What is the funniest, most interesting, or worst break-down you've ever observed?

One of the funniest comments was made by my daughter, who, by the way, is not dyslexic but somehow got her words mixed up. She said to me, on a very icy day, "Be careful, mom, the slips are steppery." I looked at her and she was dead serious. Then she realized what she had said and started laughing. Apparently she was trying to tell me how icy our front steps were but she mixed up the two words "slippery" and "steps." We often tease her about it, and to this date she's quite proud of the mix-up she made.


  1. I'd have to say the funniest one I've ever heard was when my mom called a little hotel a bread and beckfast. The two of us laughed for a while

  2. And btw, you're the one who said it ;>
