Moving Misinterpretation

So the bud from Des Moines calls today in preparation for a visit next week when he will see Hammons Field for the first time. A HUGE Cardinals fan, he will have to settle for the Missouri State Bears.

My better half mailed him a special section from the News and Leader about the ballpark to inspire a visit. She included a cryptic note about waiting until after May 10th unless he wanted to spend time carrying boxes. (We close on our house May 10th, but won't really be moving that day.)

Back to the phone call. After confirming that the cryptic note referred to an imminent move, the bud inquires if we're "moving somewhere." Couldn't resist replying, "No, we're just rearranging our house."

Maybe you had to be there.
