Friend: You're making a cake, right?Hmm... it's funny how your life can make you interpret things so differently than others - but we love each other anyway. :)
Me: Yes, I'm planning on it.
[we discuss flavors, even though it's obvious we'll be having chocolate]
Friend: Oh, I just remembered I have a nook I can bring if you want.
Me: What? (thinks "Nook?"... thinks "I already have a Nook...")
Friend: A nook - if you want to put it on the cake as a decoration.
Me: A nook?
Friend: Yeah - but if you don't need it, that's ok... you can do what you want.
Me: Ohhhh. A pacifier? (just now realizes friend meant Nuk - a pacifier.) When I think of Nook, I think of my e-reader.
Friend: Haha - wow. We really do live in different worlds.
Me: Haha - apparently. But your kind of Nuk makes more sense for cake decorations.
