Misunderstandingissimo

My Italian is pretty good but every now and then I still get it wrong, REALLY wrong…..

Last evening I was talking to friend who has had a similar operation. He asked how I was. I said I felt OK , and was a bit more active as I’d started rehearsing with the band again. He asked if I had ‘started the radio‘. As we were talking about music, I assumed he was talking about my radio programme. No; he was talking about the radio therapy I’m due to start! When I realised this, I explained the misunderstanding:he barely reacted. I suspect he was still puzzling over why I should have been ‘off-air due to problems with the sponsorship’ . . probably wondering whether I actually got paid to do radiotherapy………

I spend my time writing & performing songs, writing 'stuff', and browsing idly around the net for considerably longer than any adult should . . .

Any thoughts?
