One with my BF. We were trying to discuss something, and came up with the thought it should be pine cone shaped.
He agreed. and stated that it should be smallest at the top, and biggest at the bottom.
I looked at him and asked him if he meant, "Wide at the top and narrow at the bottom?"
Apparently, he thought of pinecones upside down from how I did, if that makes much sense. His sense of the top part was the point, where mine was the widest.
... And David Bowie's "Up the Hill Backwards" just came on the radio. Which somehow makes sense.
ETA: Also, a conversation I was once having with my dad. I think I can blame this on him being very tired, or something, because I've had conversations about languages with him the past. Once came up because we were listening to Pink Floyd, and got into an interesting discussion about Scots.
In the past, we've had a nice discussion about how English is full of Celtic influences, mostly in grammar formation. Once, he came up and discussed Old English with me, and how it was mostly a French language with the German coming in around the Norman Invasion (1066).
I'll chalk it up to him being tired, I just smiled and nodded. He hasn't since repeated that.
