CHOOSE UR WORDS CAREFULLY

I had always talked about my job a lot at home, and my young
daughter had always expressed great interest. So I thought
it would be a treat for her to spend the day with me at the
office. Since I wanted it to be a surprise, I didn't tell
her where we were going, just that it would be fun. Although
usually a bit shy, she seemed excited to meet each colleague
I introduced. On the way home, however, she seemed somewhat
down.

"Didn't you have a nice time?" I asked.

"Well, it was okay," she responded. "But I thought it would
be more like a circus."

Confused, I asked, "Whatever do you mean?"

She said, "Well, you said you work with a bunch of clowns,
and I never got to see them!"
