Hello hello, fellas!
One husband came home after a tiring day at work. He found a thank you card from his wife on their dining table.
In the card, the wife wrote:
“Thanks babe for buying this wonderful contraption for our anniversary.”
He then called his wife out and asked: “I didn’t buy you contraception. Who gave you that?”
His wife then explained that she wrote ‘contraption’, not ‘contraception’. He has misread the card. :D
You see, fellas, there’s a huuuuuge difference between ‘contraption’ and ‘contraception’.
Contraption (baca: kontrepsyen) is a noun which means a mechanical device or a gadget.
Example of contraption: TV, phone, computer, PlayStation, WII, washing machine, hair dryer, etc. #EngTrivia
Contraception (baca: kontrasepsyen) is drugs, devices or medical procedures which attempts to control ovulation and pregnancy.
There goes a short session for the day, fellas! Now you see why the husband was surprised by the misunderstanding. :D
Stay tuned to our daily sessions for more interesting discussions. G’nite!
