what I say. what she hears.

Trin:  “Where did Daddy go?  To the firehall?”

Me: “No.”

Trin:  “Oh. To work?”

Me: “No.  Daddy went to do an NHL Draft.”  (I realise this is not the proper way to speak of these things – but this is a three year old I am talking to.)

What she heard was: “Daddy went to do a giraffe.”  I know this because her response to me was:

“Oh.  And a zebra??”
