Something I’ve read (flash fiction)

Driving beneath the flyover I spotted a grey bird and said penguin. My wife laughed and said pigeon, repeating it pigeon, as if speaking to an idiot. She sighed and turned to the window, staring at something I could not see. I considered saying it was a mistake, a simple slip of the tongue, of course I knew the difference between  penguin and pigeon, but the time for stating my case seemed to have already passed.”
