No where even close

Language. It is a "funny" thing. I saw a headline, "Every movie and TV show being removed from Netflix in March." 

What does that sound like to you? It sounded really strange to me. Every movie and TV show is being removed from Netflix? Huh? 

Well. It turns out to be a list of removals, which isn't every thing on Netflix. Of course, the writer knew what they meant, but it came off in a way that has a whole different meaning - very much in the same way that many of our communications do. 

Not only does language vary, but so does the meaning read into the language. Is it any wonder we are able to truly connect at times? How often do we think we understand each other, but are no where even close?
