Tricks played by clogged ears

I'm sick with a cold/walking pneumonia and my ears are a bit clogged up. Thus I'm hearing some funny things that haven't been said. Example: Tonight on NBC's national news broadcast I heard Andrea Mitchell say

Into the cold, the Obama family returned from bombing Hawaii....
It took a few seconds of pondering to realize she must have said "returned from balmy Hawaii." So far this has been the only upside of being sick.

Hope you feel better soon!

Better now, although still recovering. Kim even felt good enough to go to work, although she still feels worse than I do. She really was borderline pneumonia. More on all this next Tuesday.
