This one can be filed under what we say and what they hear.
Tonight we were driving to a fundraiser that was based at a local Yoga Studio. Our dear friend Gail (yogamom to you who read the comments here) was kind enough to donate her beautiful space to the Port Washington Education Foundation for our first ever Amazing Race which was an amazing success.
I was telling Gary that the construction that was going on in some retail space in town was going to have a whole new row of stores facing the back parking lot. I also informed him a of a new yogurt place, that I thought was a franchise that was opening there. I said the guy already had 2 others.
Fast forward to the end of the race and poor Gail pulls me aside and says, “Gary already ruined my night so now you might as well give me all the details.” Hmmmm, I thought to myself, what the hell is she talking about. I leave him here bartending for an hour and a half and he has ruined her night? WTH.
Gail: So just give me the details and let me get this over with.
Me: Um, what are you talking about?
Gail: Gary told me a franchised yoga studio is opening in town.
Me: How would he know that?
Gail: He said you told him on the way here.
Me: (lightbulb going off in my battered brain). Not yoGA… yoGURT!
Note to self: schedule Gary’s hearing test.
