Overheard and misunderstood

Overheard at the discount store:

“Well, you know, her grandfather was Johnny Walker Red . . .”

And misunderstood as my husband read me the directions on the box in which the ant traps came:

What the box said:  “For thorough control of ants . . .”

What I heard:  “For thought control of ants . . .”

Damn–I thought we had the critters this time.
