SPOONERISMS. Do you love them too? I got two accidental gifties for the ear today, from two different friends. (Thank you, C and G!)
C meant to say that she found her new motor cycle when she was touring the store-room floor, but it came out “flow room store.” So groovy, that flow room store. Can you feel it?
And earlier G suggested we meet at the “Stav or Tarlight” when she meant to say Tav or Starlight, two great bars that serve food in town here. How saucy the characters who lurk in the Tarlight!
For a wordy gal like me, mixed up language is a joy. But as much fun as they are for me, people get embarrassed when you point them out or ask to hear them again. (Got to stop doing that.)
I revel in the sleight of mind that sends the tongue tumbling in word surf, sand in my suit, a mass of bubbly language crashing. I love that tarlight flow.
