The Homophone Moment

Neal and I, in bed last night.

Me: So you have a medical appointment at 4:45 p.m. tomorrow?
Neal: Yes.
Me, not knowing whose office he’d be going to: “Which doctor?”
Neal: No, I think he’s just a regular M.D.

The Zimmern Moment

Filed under: My Funny Valentine — Ann @ 7:17 pm

Neal and I were watching Andrew Zimmern on “The Food Channel” – the guy who travels around the world eating pig’s testicles, blood pudding, and frog’s hearts, among other delicacies. I was commenting on the unusual spelling of his last name, telling Neal that it looks like the guy left out some letters. Neal looked at me brightly and replied, “Yes – he eliminated the middle ‘ma,’” pronouncing it with a flat ‘a’ as in ‘man.’ Oh, he’s quick.
