Mensagem:  An excellent point, Johannes.

At the end of the film "The Polar Express" there is a good example of this. A girl is given a ticket marked "LEAD". To her it meant one thing. To the train conductor, it meant something quite different.

Context is extremely important. I wish that we would get these questions with more context. What was said before the sentence with the phrase or word in question? What was said after the sentence with the phrase or word in question?
