Things You Never Thought You’d Have to Clarify

Communication is interesting.  Sometimes people can perceive something you say in a way that you never imagined they would.

In Sunday’s message, I said something about people having premarital or extramarital sex.  I just assumed that everyone would understand “extramarital sex” to mean sex with someone other than your spouse.

Nope.

On one of the Connection Cards we received, someone wrote something like: “Extra marital sex?  Sign me up for that!”

Extramarital.  Not extra marital.

Sigh.  Sometimes the greatest subtleties make the greatest difference.
