hom-o-nym - a word the same as another in sound and spelling but different in meaning
It's funny how a word or phrase can mean something completely different, depending on your experiences.
If you don't know a lot of pregnant women, you might not realize that some women like to take frequent pictures, weekly, monthly, etc... of their full profile, to chronicle their pregnancy. And, as you may remember, many like to share those pictures!
So, I was reading a post this morning on a message board, written by someone who is pregnant with #2. She was saying that she can't believe how different this pregnancy is from her first and that, in this one, she's only done two belly shots, when she'd done so many more in her first pregnancy.
I swear, as I read that, I thought, "hmmm, I thought she had fairly easy pregnancies. I didn't know she had to take shots for anything." It probably took me a good 20 seconds before I realized she was referring to pictures of her growing tummy!
Sadly, the term "belly shots" has such a different meaning to me....
