Oh Dear

I was at our Women's Prayer meeting tonight and Vinita was filling me in on some prayer requests. Some were private and we had a whole conversation about a woman in our church who has a TV but didn't want anyone to know about it until it hit me that Vinita had said that the woman has TB not a TV.

V... B. Yeah. Hindi is one of those languages where there's not a big distinction in the sounds. At least not to my ear. Who knows what Vinita was thinking when I was commenting on the conversation while I still thought we were talking about a TV. She's too nice to say anything. At least I eventually got it. Heaven only knows how many things I never ever do get.
