He said “I’d like to invite you to brunch”
I exclaimed “you certainly must mean lunch!”
“Why, no, I actually meant brunch with a “b”
I looked straight at him and said, “are you mocking me?
I’m offended you speak so casually!”
He exclaimed, “well, I’m sorry, meaning no offense,
Simply utilizing a portmanteau, it’s
breakfast and lunch condensed!”
