My house is constantly messy. You know how in the old days the inscription on a woman's headstone may have read 'She Kept a Clean House'? I told a friend that I wouldn't mind having that on my headstone. To which my friend replied, 'You can put whatever you want on it. No one fact checks head stones!' 🤣

I think a lovely garden that produces wonderfully fresh veggies is more important than a tidy house that you can't eat!

Well, I've told you before that, for years I thought Creedence Clearwater Revival in "Lodi" were singing "Oh Lord, I'm sucking off old dry men."

Folksongs are also a major one (especially if they contain words that are either archaic or in another language, or both.) I thought the Irish singer of "The Star of the County Down" thought the green was "boring" (it's "bolin'") and there is a line in the (Gaelic) folksong "A Poc al Buile" that I was sure said "The golem shared, the ribs got done, the gorilla forces......."
I made a little mistake, the first bit is separate from the rest the majority is at 1:09


I also think the last line of this one is pretty funny

well, now that you've let the cat out of the proverbial bag perhaps you may have to publish pre-amble corrections or other figments of the imagination (otherwise known as an autobiography :) )...
