A few days ago I checked out some concertos from the library to sight-read for fun.
Just now I was in my room and my mom was downstairs and she hollered, “Sharon, where are the concertos?”
I heard that as “Sharon, where are the pet turtles?”
Me: Pet turtles??
Me: PET TURTLES??
Mom: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CONCERTOS?
Me: WHAT PET TURTLES??? [seriously alarmed]
My ear is excellent at detecting pitch…just not normal human speech.
