J: You know what ‘Riparian’ means?

Me thinking {…sounds like a kind of bird}: To view the…ahh…ripe…ahh…

J {stifling a laugh}: Would that be a fruit or vegetable?

Me {announcing proudly & indignantly}: It’s a kind of bird.

J: You sure…

Me: Yes, of course.

Of course I was wrong.  So now J’s not letting me live that down.  We’ll be walking the dogs, and out of the blue he’ll caw like a crow just to remind me…
