When I was in high school, I wore a purity ring. It was a fairly cheap piece of jewelry, so I always took it off when I needed to wash my hands. Once, I took it off and forgot it on one of the sinks in the girls’ restroom. One class later, I realized what I had done, so I went back to look for it. It wasn’t there. So I went to the office and said, “I lost my purity ring in the girls’ restroom.” The administrative clerk misheard me. She thought I said, “I lost my purity in the girls’ restroom.” She was very concerned.
Moral of the story: Enunciation is important. Don’t mumble.
