A couple of days ago without too much thought, I posted on Facebook (FB) about the severe storms that pushed through our Houston area. I showed a picture of a burning house with text saying “Someone on the street perpendicular to our house got struck by lightning.” Immediately, one of my FB friends saw the post and must have thought, quite literally, that someone got struck by lightning. So they replied back and asked – “The house or a person?”
And then earlier this week, I took my new puppy to get her shots and was asked by the office assistant to go into the first room on the left. However to do that, you first had to literally take an immediate left in the hall to go down the hallway and then the room was the first door on the right. But the assistant was just simply stating what she viewed as the first door possible to go into, that was in the left direction of the hallway.
Confused yet or are you able to read between the lines?
