Excuse Me While I Kiss This Guy

I am deaf.
Ok, while that's not entirely true, I do seem to have a penchant for hearing things just slightly wrong. For instance:

Actual Nickelback lyric:

And it must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

Nickelback lyric according to Megs:

And it must have been so bad
Cause Little Women must have damn near killed you

The saddest part about all this is that instead of thinking, "that makes no sense! Little Women couldn't kill anybody!" I invent crazy explanations for why my lyric is clearly right. In this case, it seems like the woman that he is describing throughout the song is very sensitive. Maybe he is saying that she is just SO emotional that reading Little Women must have damn near killed her.

Or the time that I decided that the Nelly Furtado lyric, "I'm like a bird, I'd only fly away," was "I'm like a bird, I don't evaluate." Because birds don't evaluate, people. I'd just like to see an evaluating bird.

Recently I misunderstood the SLVR (sliver) phone as the Slipper Phone. I was like, "Damn, we've got the razor and the slipper, what are we going to get next, the bathrobe phone? The toothbrush phone?" My husband could barely keep from throwing up laughing as he explained that it was the sliver phone....because it is so thin.
