Earlier today:

Partner: "That thing is held together with baling wire and chicken wax!"

Me: "...chicken wax?"

Partner: "... did I say... ?"

Me: "Were you trying to say, separately, 'baling wire' and 'chicken wire' and 'sealing wax?'"

Partner: "Yes."

Discussion of what the hell chicken wax might be follows. Perhaps it sticks chickens together, or is some sort of grooming product. I can't get the image of a chicken with a '50s pompadour and leather jacket out of my head.

Bit later:

Partner: "...so they thought, 'Apple is cleaning our lunch!' And then they... What?"

Me, laughing: "Sorry, did you mean, 'eating our lunch' and 'cleaning our clock?'"

Partner: "...yes."

I've had some nouns temporarily disappear as well. I wonder if we should worry about this.

Whenever this happens to me, I claim it's because I speak more than one language every day. It's totally about age, though. *g*
