For some reason, I tend to think about the most random things whenever I'm in the bathroom. For example, I was brushing my teeth one morning, and suddenly "baby carrots" popped into my head. I had never thought about it before, but then suddenly an image of a pointy orange baby popped into my head. I wonder if the person who created Cabbage Patch Dolls was thinking the same thing...
It's not just "baby carrots" that sound weird to me, other common nouns such as "earphones" and "dining table" (a table that dines?) also seem strange in my head.
Are there any common nouns that make you say to yourself, "...well, that sounds unusual" ?
