Ok, so everyone has those times when they say things without thinking about them, or do really stupid things. Unfortunately some of us have this happen more than others. I had one such moment today, and it caused me to think back on some of the other "Blonde" moments I've had in my life. Here is a brief account.
-A couple of years ago we went to Hawaii in the middle of January, so when we flew back to SLC there was of course snow. My dad, being the very caring father that he is, parked the car in the parking garage so we wouldn't have to go through the hassle of getting on and off the buses. So, we walk into the garage and there are a bunch of cars with snow on them. So I say, "How did these cars get snow on them if they're inside??" DUH. Everyone had a good laugh at my expense.
-I get really confused whenever my dad tries to explain professional sports to me. I like to watch, but I really don't care if I understand.
-Whenever anyone tries to explain to me how to drive a manual transmission car, I get utterly confused and ask why you wouldn't just drive an automatic in the first place.
-To start I don't find this one particularly funny. But, one night I was playing this game with my friends, where you write down names of people and then you have to go around and try to get people to guess them. So, the name on the paper was Peewie Herman, and the clue was that he lived in a cartoon house on t.v. I blurted out Blue's Clue's and everyone immediately started laughing for like 5 minutes. To this day I don't even understand what was so funny. I guess it has to do with the fact that they're all like 5 years older than me, and I remind them of that often.
-So, ya know the song Feel Good Inc. by the Gorillaz? Well, there is a part at the beginning of the song, and I always sing it as "Shucka, Shucka" but one day while Jac and I were driving and I was singing along she said that wasn't right. Listen to the song, and I think you'll agree with me.
-One time my friend Stef and I were going to the movies. I pulled out my card to pay and put it through the machine. It didn't work and the lady told me to do it again. It kept saying there was an error reading the card, so the lady tried to do it on another machine, but it still wouldn't work. I KNEW there was money on it, so I was just like what the?? Finally I take a look at my card and realize it's my ATM card and not my debit card. Man did I feel stupid.
Ok, so I promise I'm not stupid!!! Really. I did very well on my microbiology test today, which was very hard. Sometimes I just think that I concentrate so hard on school, that when I'm not studying I let my mind relax a little too much. Oh well. It provides for a lot of good comic relief.
