Every word has a definition, but they aren't always what we mean when we say them. For example, I might have said "I'll do that right away, honey," but what I really meant was, "I will forget whatever you asked me to do the moment this show ends." This fun series of images, created by a creative Tumblr called "Oh, So That's What That Means," shows us what some of us really mean when we use some of these simple, everyday words.

Do you have any real-life word definitions of your own? If so, feel free to add them to this list!
