And now an example of how a converstion can be mis heard !

"Joey" our 9 (ish) year old Budgie sadly died yesterday. The kids of course are all very upset, although when my wife called to tell me of his dire condition a work colleague ,who was sat close by, overheard part of my conversation....

"So he's not looking good then? It will probably be only a matter of time until we lose him" i told her.
"I will really miss him if he dies" i continued, "do you want me to bring a cardboard box back from work and we can bury him in the back garden tonight?" was at around this point my mate realised that i was not talking about a human member of our family! :-)

Farewell Joey. You will be sadly missed.
