The Annual Meeting Of The Misunderstood Word Society

Here's a little true story I heard at school today.

Several teenage boy siblings were sitting around at home. One had an app for his phone that gave him random facts. "Hey! Did you know that more people are killed by donkeys annually than by airplanes?"

The youngest sib frowned. "Ooohhh! That would be bad!"

The mom overheard. "Annually means yearly. YEARLY!"

Sioux,
Yes, they seem to have some kind of approach/avoidance issue in that arena. Always creeping up to the fire, yet shying away as if burned.
