Imogen and I were reading the third Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place and reached the scene where Lord Ashton describes his grandfather's death by cause of murderous pheasants.
Imogen: What does murderous mean?
Me: It means killing, murdering, someone or something on purpose.
Imogen: Oh. I thought murdering was winking your eye at someone.
(Apparently MamaJen never played the childhood game of Murder from which Imogen was drawing this understanding, so she found it all the funnier.)
