Nosy Message.


The Daily Prompt

A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.

I have always loved the song “Message in a bottle” by the Police.  Anyway, for years I have been singing along, in my mind, sometimes out of my mouth, the following words:

” A year has passed since I broke my nose”

the correct words are:

“A year has passed since I wrote my note”

So anyway, just recently, I downloaded this song on my iPod and was playing it in the car when I heard, as clear as daylight; Sting did not break his nose a year ago, but rather wrote his note!

The lyrics had crossed my mind as being a bit odd, the breaking of the nose and all.  I’m sure I would have caused quite boisterous laughter if anyone had of heard me sing this song – hopefully no one did.
