Before tea

I recently explained to some friends that my brain tends to organize words by sounds. This can have some rather amusing consequences. I hadn’t had my tea yet this morning when Neil suggested that gin cures all ills for postgraduates. What I heard was jinn. So while he was wondering why I was staring at my tea with a very puzzled expression, I was wondering why on earth he was talking about genies. Unfortunately, if you were to give me a bottle of either, neither gin nor jinn would avail me.

    Are you sure? Have you ever tried? ; ) Um, I wouldn’t suggest trying the jinn. Freaky things, those.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if I were to have understood him to say jinn, but I do find it funny that you did. : )
