* DUMB THINGS BECKY SAID *

One for the chapter of "Dumb Things Becky Said."
Hey, this might be a semi-regular blog post, like my Nostalgic Sundays.

(I think I have dyslexia of the mouth!)

At work today, a woman came into the store and asked how to get to our tearoom. I said, "I'll take you there. It's right this way."

Then...knowing there was a group of ladies already sitting at one of the long tables, I asked her, "Are you here with the group of large ladies?"

I swear to God I said that! I couldn't make this stuff up. I kind of back pedaled, explaining what I meant to say, etc. etc.

One of my dreams is to do Stand-Up someday at an Open Mic. I'd bring LOTS of friends who already laugh at stuff I say, so I wouldn't die of embarrassment, in case nobody else laughed.

 
 
I don't remember if I've jotted down any of the crazy, backwards things I've said over the past few years, but I'll look. And if I didn't write them down, hopefully some will pop into my head....hopefully!

  1. I say wrong things like that sometimes and my kids make sure I know about it by falling about laughing their heads off.

  2. BROWN-EYED BECKY-O! ~
    Now, the question is: Was the woman you were talking to... LARGE? (Was it "Large Marge"?)

    If so, yup, she might (and should) file a complaint against you to the management. Ha!

    Well, looks like my GoodReads entry took, because I just got a confirmation notice from them saying I now have an account. Never really necessarily wanted a GoodReads account, but if I win a free copy of your book, it'll be good.

    Of course, I already have your book, so I'd just be mailing it to a friend if I won.

      Hey, this just dawned on me: Didn't you miss my last BOTB contest? I don't recall a vote from you.

      Oh, well, YOUR LOSS, because it was a good song which I'll bet you really like. ('SEALED WITH A KISS')

      Better luck next time, Slacker.

  3. You are so not alone. Which makes me wonder how much of my difficulty in walking is MS and how much is because I have crammed (at least one) foot in my mouth. Again.

  4. You are so funny, Becky. You should keep a journal.

  5. Oh, dear. Let's hope those ladies were jolly, and didn't threaten to kick your butt!

  6. Oh, I know the feeling...open mouth, insert foot. Guess we better be keeping our feet clean, huh?

    Hope all is well. Been busy here. I got a new puppy. She's adorable, and she totally has my heart. But may I just say that I know why women over 50 don't often have babies...we don't have the energy level!!

    Blessings,
    Patti

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
