“You need to make it to 30 plus to avail the discount”
And I ordered 30 copies hoping for a discount…I overlooked it to be 30 or more as the limit for discount….
“The venue is at Kottakkal Ayurveda college”
And she thought it to be Kottakal Aryavydyasala and reached at wrong place. Another instance of oversight or familiarity blindness
“Approximately 2 liters of water collected since yesterday morning”
And on hearing the same, he thought it to be since today morning, as it was already feeded into his brain
With very few people only I have found that attitude to decode exactly what is heard or read. Many a times most people assume things in their favor or in the common way or according to what’s feeded in their brain already. Sometimes they don’t have a second thought at all to think it differently, just assume it’s like that only.
My decoding lies in a 50-50 margin ;). With each instance, I hope to improve next time though instances only keep on repeating. And sometimes it decodes the most common thing in the most strange way and thus making myself weird. The poor brain is dabbling in extremes “ Onnukil Aashante nenjath, allenkil Kalarikku purath.” ( Its a Malayalam proverb literally meaning “Throwing oneself either onto the chest of the teacher or outside the arena”)
