A man, say A, was doing something. Another man, say B, said to A, "Do you need something?" A said, "Hair." B took a chair and give it to A. A said, "Thank you."

If you want to do bold type for your answers, just do \b[answer] but with curly brackets { instead of square to get answer. Just makes it a bit easier to read.
Did A pronounce the word hair so that it sounded like the word chair? Does he speak a language where h is pronounced ch? Did hair sound like a particular type of chair?

Did he (A) know that if he said chair, it would come out differently and thus, say hair, knowing that it would sound like chair, which was what he needed?
