Every once in a while I misread something and end up laughing at myself pretty hard. A few minutes ago I saw a response to someone who was selling some stuff on our "for sale" mailing list at work. The response was from someone interested it the seller's wine rack, but the first time my eyes scanned it I read this:

I am all over your wife's rack if it's still available! I've been looking for one exactly like it.

Instead of:

I am all over your wine rack if it's still available! I've been looking for one exactly like it.

Honest mistake, right? :-)

Someday I'll grow up. Maybe.

Once I caught a glimpse of a newspaper headline that read "Bill Would Make Software Copying a Felony". Confusedly, I thought "well, of course billg would do that if he _could_ ... but can he?")

(Only a little bit later did I realize that "Bill" in this case meant "proposed legislation"...)

See, here's how boring it gets when you DO grow up, which is what happened to me one day...

I saw the headline, and immediately, I've got one geek talking to another geek about rack space in a rack owned by the wife of one of the two geeks.

Dude, like I am TOTALLY all over your wife's rack...
