Yes we both speak Dutch

"So is that the 'kleedje' your refered to this morning or is it something else?" , he asks while pointing to my cardigan "because I was confused, "kleedje" is what we put on the floor."

A few hours before we were complaining about the weather when I had exclaimed a bit desperately that I had put on a dress that day and now it was so cool and grey again.   Turns out he had heard me exclaiming that I was wearing a rug.  And I thought his smile was about the fact that I underdressed for the weather, but I had no idea I was overdressing :D

Let me guess, he was speaking "Dutch" dutch and you were speaking "Flemish" dutch?

Ha ha ha! Yes! I've done that one the other way around before, mentioned a rug to a Vlaamse and she couldn't understand why I'd want to have a nice dress on the floor! :-D

I love these kinds of misunderstandings! (Especially when I'm not directly involved for once!) Have you got any more for us?
