The Meaning of Meant

When I told my husband the new house was perfect as is...

he knew that I meant except for the stripping
and bleaching of the walls here.

He knew that. Right?

When my 4 year old squealed that she wanted the
walls in her new room to be pink pink pink...

She meant ballet pink. A pink as soft as Cecile Brunner's
first petal pop. A subtle and sophisticated pink.

An heiress pink.


So I matched Farrow and Ball's Pink Ground.
Pink enough.


And when we signed and I said that I wanted
chickens because I'm moving here and it has this...

I didn't mean it. I was wrong. Right?
