A moment of confusion

Still unpacking. Gotta get 'er done.

I noticed a box in the room we're making a craft workshop. The box said, "Commitment to Sewers." Reading the last word as soo-ers, the first thing I thought was that it was a plumbing device. Looking closer, I realized it was Deanne's sewing machine, and the word was soh-ers. I broke out laughing. It had never registered with me before that sewers (drainage pipes) and sewers (tailors) were indistinguishable out of context.

Such things lighten the day.
