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.”
