I Must Have Overheard This Wrong


“They also scroll, like proverbial butter”? I don’t offhand know any proverbs about butter scrolling. Granting that I did hear it wrong, though, what should I have heard instead? “They also roll, like proverbial butter”? That isn’t much of an improvement. “They also butter, like proverbial rolls”, now that parses, but the other way around is just absurd. Clearly I’ve just got to go back around and try this whole listening thing again, from the start.

    1. I’m comfortable assuming whatever the problem is, it’s that I’m out of the loop. I haven’t found a loop to be in since elementary school, when I got to be part of the people who didn’t have to play kickball because they couldn’t actually kick the ball much.
