I was sitting on a trunk on the floor, with the sewing machine on a chair, trying to copy and recreate a ready made item. I made a really stupid mistake during the construction and started tsk-tsking to myself, “Oh man I am such a moron, I can’t believe I did something so stupid.”
Miriam asked me what I had done and I explained that I’d sewn two tubes together *before* turning them inside out, and therefore had to take out the whole seam I’d just made.
“It’s really gross,” she replied.
“Huh? What’s gross?”
“Oh, I mean, that stinks.”
