50 Shades Of Stupid

Even know I am going crazy right now, my kids have been driving me bonkers 
all day long. I'm gonna do this. I'm gonna write about the stupid things I do.
Did I just say "even know" and not "even though"....
Ohhhh, you thought that was a typo didn't you?
Oh no no no... that's how I say it.
Please do not even tell me YOU never say anything stupid.

Welcome to 50 SHADES OF STUPID!
The Brand New Link Up where we tell on all the stupid things we do and say!
Now, it's YOUR turn, Grab a button, tell me something dumb you did last week,
last month, last year, 14 years ago...or maybe something you do regularly!
I am ready to get my giggle on. You know, the giggle you get when you are alone.
At your computer. Smiling like a monkey. That giggle.
Grab a button, link up, follow me and my co-host  this week, 
which is L from ALL GLORIOUS WITHIN and make us laugh!

Here's a few more of mine!

THIS ONE I didn't even realize until a week ago when I was babysitting.
My daughter and her two friends were playing wedding.
One of the little girls starts singing "Here comes the bride."
In my head I was singing along with it and I sang "All dressed and wide..."
Meanwhile she sang, "all dressed in white..."
ohhhhhh... is that how it goes? I always wondered why we would sing
about the bride being 'dressed and wide.' 

Here's a facebook status of mine. From a few weeks ago.
That awkward moment when you're a pedestrian approaching a corner the same time as 
2 vans full of firefighters and they wait for you to cross the street. But instead of crossing, 
you look down and pretend you were turning the corner, going down the street they are on...  
Until they are out of view, and then you cross the street & say to your dog 
"let's go this way instead" just in case the firefighters that are now a block away saw you
they might be able to 'hear you' and they would know that you simply 
"changed your mind." Yeah, that.
It's true. I actually did that. What?

I got far more embarrassed in jr high and high school than I do now. 
 Now I am willing to admit what a dweeb I am. Then it wasn't so funny. Like that time 
the teacher asked me to read a 'math problem' out loud and I did and it said something like 
Sam had 16 lbs of sugar, etc. Only I didn't know lbs stood for pounds. 
So instead of saying 16 lbs, I said 16 labels.  I heard kids snickering, and I was like  
"What? 16 labeled." It's labeled 16. I mean, 16 with a label. You know..." 
Yeah, I made it worse. Shoulda just left it at 16 labels and been done with it.

What STUPID things have YOU done?
link up, follow my co-host and I, and grab your button! 
And if you'd like to co-host some week, shoot me an email!!
I'd love to have you!

Omg hahaha the story about talking to your dog in case they would hear you...I do that all the time, like an idiot. This post was amazing.

Alyson @Vintage Sunshine said...

These are great. LOVE the firefighter story. I can totally imagine doing that myself. I'll have to write stuff down as the week goes on so that I can remember and link up. So much fun!

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

Okay, I'm not going to lie. This is hilarious! I'm sorry I didn't get your e-mail in time about the link up. I have an old post that I can link up. Yeah?

Jenn said...

Hilarious! And what a fun idea for a linkup :-)

Janna Renee said...

This turned out even funnier than I imagined! At least we are all laughing with you and not at you!

Annie said...

Hahaha! You would like this story: at the church we went to, anytime people came forward to be members and had been members at another southern baptist church, they brought a letter and the pastor would say that they had brought this letter from "a church of like faith."

we went to this church for almost fifteen years before my mother realized they were saying "LIKE faith" instead of "LIGHT faith." she was like, "i always wondered what heavy faith was?" hahaha.

Ah this is great! I think I have to play!! I do stupid all the time :)

Jess @ Colorful Ones said...

Hee hee! So funny, thanks for sharing! We need to remember to laugh at ourselves!

I am crazy-over-sensitive so I have a really hard time just giggling it off like this... but I see my daughter taking on the same traits (but multiplied by like a MILLION) and it breaks my heart... I don't want to pass my neurosis on to her!!!

So here is my 50 shades of stupid for today... (trust me, there are many!) ... I have a family full of Mustang nuts... my father-in-law has one, my brother-in-law has owned 2 or 3 over the years, and my brother and my hubby each had one for awhile. My husband's sister (married to said brother-in-law) has a dog named Shelby. Has had her for, oh, probably 5 years now? So about a year ago we were driving down the highway and hubby says "Did you see that Shelby?" referring to a car that had passed... and all of a sudden a lightbulb went on in my head... "OH! THAT'S why they named her Shelby!!!" ... yep, folks... I did... and hubby still shakes his head in embarrassment to this day (it's a good thing he loves me, lol)! :)

Well POO! I just pulled another '50 Shades of Stupid' moment...

The whole reason I commented was that I wanted to share this... and then I forgot!

I think I know why you had the "Here Comes the Bride" song mixed up in your head... I think you combined the real one with the silly one that we (or at least I) sang as a kid... it goes like this:

Here comes the Bride, all fat and wide
See how she wobbles from side to side!
Here comes the Groom, skinny as a broom,
Had to use the side door because there wasn't room!

Horrible, I know!!!
