Reader feedback: Two senses of peach

It was Christmas dinner 1990 in Dúbravka, at the table with our best friends, including their 8-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter. On the table was a bowl of peaches. I looked at the 11-year-old girl and said, "Please pass the peaches." It had to be explained to me why both kids fell out of their chairs laughing. Maybe it was my pronunciation.
