Same sound,different word

Lillianna and I were on our way to dancing school today and I was trying to tell her something funny about my sister,Kara. Growing up,Kara was not the most emotional person on the planet. As a young child she was more snuggly than she was in her later years but I guess that's to be expected.

Lillianna only knows Kara as the loving and wonderful auntie she has always been so to explain my story I tried to give her a good description of what she was like in her teen years. I said,"She was kind of standoffish......aloof."
I thought for a second then I asked,"Do you know what aloof is?"

Lillianna replied,"I know what a loofah is."

I burst out laughing.
