Thaw-thought

posted in Uncategorized |

This is one of those things that I’m just not sure is going to translate very well into writing. But I’ll give it a try.

Last night (or was it the night before?) my husband and I were cleaning up the kitchen after the kids went to bed. I was talking to him about how I was excited to actually be making some meals that require more than just one pot, after what seems like weeks of hamburgers and hot dogs and a few-too-many takeaways. I explained that I believe the key was, of course, my menu, and then actually putting a bit of forethought into my day, the night before so I made sure to defrost meat.

And he said “So you’re using thaw-thought.”

In writing that looks really stupid, but you have to remember that he has an accent that is different to mine and any word that ends in -aw (like law, or thaw) come out sounding like -ore (like lore, or thore).

So when he said “thaw-thought” it sounded like “thore-thought” which is remarkably like what I actually said, which was “forethought”. And of course he was referring to me having some forethought in remembering to thaw the meat.
Okay, this is totally lame. But if you could have heard it, it was really funny.

There is currently one response to “Thaw-thought”

Why not let us know what you think by adding your own comment! Your opinion is as valid as anyone elses, so come on... let us know what you think.

    I thought it was great - I could hear our friends with the same accent saying it too. :D
