i need to see a philanthropist

I was joking around with my youngest daughter earlier this week.  OK, I thought I was joking around; she probably just thought I was being annoying.  Two people looking at the same situation and seeing two different things …

Anyhow, at one point, she said to me, “You need to see a philanthropist.”

Before I started laughing, I readily agreed with her.  “Yes, I do need to see a philanthropist.”

She then realized she had said the wrong word and tried to keep from laughing.  It didn’t work.

“I mean to say, ‘You need to see a therapist.'”

“I probably need to see one of those, too.  After I see the philanthropist.”
