Curly and I were adding test data to our automobile insurance app. "Add the driver," I told her.
There were two drivers, a policy driver and a non-policy driver. She asked me, "Should I just add the plain driver?
"No, add the CAR driver, silly!"
She paused. Then she laughed aloud in surprise.... "I meant should I add the policy driver or the other one," she said reproachfully. I was laughing too, embarrassed but amused at the same time, covering my mouth not to be too disruptive.
"I know," I smirked at her. Then I apologized. It's bad form to twist somebody's words, and worse form to laugh at your own jokes, but I couldn't help myself. It came out of my mouth before I knew what I was saying! Fortunately she was laughing too.
