English Patient: Love and Marriage

Sister Y: [pointing to a broom during Sunday setup]  What is this thing called in English?

Friend: That's a broom.

Sister Y: You mean like what brides get married to?

Friend: Oh my gosh!!  That's "groom", not "broom"!

Sister Y: [trying to recover] Oh, well, I thought bride and broom made sense because I thought husbands are supposed to sweep the house after they get married.
