This thread is not about misunderstood song lyrics (aka ‘mondegreens’).
Rather, this therad is about words or phrases that you misunderstood when you were little. I’ll start…
I thought daytime dramas, the ones shot on video, were ‘soap boppers’. (Soap operas.)
I thought a certain Olympics event was ‘finger skating’. (Figure skating.)
I told a waitress, ‘Yes!’ She asked ‘Yes, what?’ I told her, 'Yes, I want ‘super salad!’ (‘Do you want soup, or salad?’)
Life was so much more interesting when I was five!
