Something Like Mondegreen 
 
 
I don't know how it happened.  I mean I can't point to the exact moment or the specifics of the most recent example.  Mondegreen is the word(as defined by Merriam-Webster online) used to describe the mishearing or misinterpreting of words.  For me this is typically evident with music but it can occur when writing or speaking too.  I mean this happens all the time mind you.  But enough to be annoying.  And funny too.  
 
 
I explored this self-diagnosed malady in an ActiveRain post in 2014 -  "Last Night I Dreamt of Some Bagels" .   I still "suffer" from it. Those around me - when not giggling or raucously laughing - are still witnessing it too.  Suffering I imagine in their own way.   
 
These days mondegreen occurs for me while pondering and sometimes it is expressed out loud when attempting to communicate. Stuff happens, right? Back to pondering. 
 
Although being mindful and staying alert is a part of the plan.  Examples of mondegreen are bound to follow from time to time.  I mean you gotta laugh.  
 
 
Of course, using the right words is important in our daily communication(in writing or when spoken).  Effective communication matters.  A lot.  So I hear.
