On a lighter note has anybody done anything a big weird lately?

Here is my story, one of them at least.

Last night, just on dusk, while cooking tea, our power went off. I won't mention the neighbours on three sides still had lights, but quite a few of us had no power.

I do wear glasses, but I had to take them off to read the phone book. That is probably weird in its self. So I got the phone book looked up the power co. and rang them to be told they are onto the power situation.

All cool there, but then I went to look for my glasses, as I need them to see things a bit further away than my nose, but I could not find them. So in the dark, with torches, with candles me and two big sons were searching high and low, hoping not to hear the crunch of broken glass, (but they are plastic lenses).

Half an hour later still searching, husband arrives home, to a dark house, thinking I might have run off again, to clear my head, so there is now four of us on the case of missing specs.

At this part of the story, (I am now beginning to believe I do my best thinking in the bathroom), as the thought struck me while their, that they could be in the oven! Sounds strange and stupid, but I had put a couple of things away in the oven, straight after ringing the power co. So without thinking, I yell out look in the oven, and they did, and there they were.

I now wish I had kept quiet about the oven, and went and looked in it discreetly, as now when I ask where something is, they tell me to look in the oven!

Oh gosh, too many times I'm afraid. :) Here are a few:

There was the time I was out for a walk and ran into a fire hydrant. There wasn't anyone around me, and I saw the thing coming, but I think I was just too lazy to get out of the way...I gave it a feeble attempt but the darned hydrant got me smack on the knee. :ph34r:

Then there was the time about a month ago when I was backing out of my parking space and plowed right into my neighbors car. He was legally parked, I was a moron. :ph34r:

I've put the milk away in the cupboard and the crackers in the fridge (before gluten/casein free).

To this day I have yet to find a ring that I put in a safe place, oh, about 30 years ago. :ph34r:

Well while we're on the subject of stupidity, just off the top of my head a week or so ago, I was at the grocery store in the checkout line. I was fumbling in my purse for my keys and sunglasses--could not find the sunglasses. Fumbled in the purse a few more times, looked in cart, by this time I'm in the car. I figured I lost them--I get home and realize that they're hanging on my shirt! Literally, right in front of my nose. :ph34r: These kinds of things happen to me a lot :huh:

I was an extremely shy, akward, 14 year old. I had just moved with my parents from Texas to New Mexico.
I was out riding my bike when I noticed something in front of me. It was my 17 year old HOT neighbor. I guess I was to busy watching him bent over in his blue jean cut offs washing his car to notice the phone pole in front of me. Needless to say I plowed into the pole knocking myself to the ground and the breath out of me. He came running over to me and asked if I was ok. I could only manage an.. ahh, ahh. He picked me up and my bike and took me home. :o

As Chair, at a public meeting, I hit the gavel and called the meeting adjourned....I was OPENING UP THE MEETING. I am surprized that everyone did not get up and go home before it even started. All my fellow commissioners laughed at me after the meeting. I had no clue.

And I forget things all the time. My house looks like a post-it ad.

I have way too many "duh" moments.

The most hilarious and most embarassing one I can remember happened when I was about 8. I had a friend that was African American (from Zaire) and we were talking one day while waiting to get into the public pool, I had overheard the people in front of me talking about how hot it was and how they try to wear light colored clothing and all to combat it.

Thinking about how I had heard that black clothes "absorb heat" and white clothes reflect it, I asked my friend "do black people get hotter in the summer than white people do?"

she looked at me like I was crazy, and I guess I looked confused because she laughed and said

"you know I don't remember the last time I was white in the summer time, so I can't say"

I guess I should have realized that since I had no way of knowing, neither did she........... :lol:

we still laugh about it.

oh yes, I do stupid things all the time. metal pot in the microwave, candy in the pockets in the dryer, glasses left on in the shower... cutting myself with my own fingernails or repeatedly hurting the same boo-boo are the ones I hate the most.

A few months ago I got this large bowl of piping hot soup from Whole Foods. I got it to go and when I got in my car I put the soup on the console thing between the two front seats. Somehow, I managed to turn around, and knock the entire thing of soup towards me. :huh: I was covered with soup and it was all over my car. It was tomato based tortilla soup with mushy corn chips in it. This was during my lunch hour, and I only had a few minutes before I had to get back to work. The soup was so hot I almost undressed in the parking lot LOL. Good thing I was wearing all black. I managed to clean enough of the soup out of my pants and shirt, and then put on a big jacket over my clothing and went back to work. haha. That whole story is just like one big moment of stupidity.

I have more stupid moments than I can possibly remember, but there are 2 that stick out the most in my mind.

My family will never let me forget the year I ruined my sisters birthday. They had gotten her a Carvel cake and told me to put it in the upstairs freezer for the next day. (We had 2 kitchens in the house because my grandma lived with us till she passed away and when my dad had the house built he basically built her, her own apartment). Anywhoo, so I put the cake in the freezer. Or atleast I thought I did. Needless to say there was a very sad 8 year old when her cake was completely melted when I took her cake out of the refrigerator.

The 2nd is still a constant joke between me and my best friend. We met in college and instantly became inseprable. I wasn't the messiest person in college but I also wasn't a neat freak. My roomate however was a total neat freak so I would try and do my best not to be to messy. Well one day I spent several hours cleaning the whole suite, dusting, vaccuming, etc. My friend came over to my room (for probably no real reason other than to just hang out), and I was just finishing up and was so proud of how great the room looked in a fit of excitement I exclaimed, " Look how room my clean is!"
To this day she laughs at the expression on my face. I was so excited and just kinda froze with this dumb smile after I said it knowing something was wrong but not quite what that was. Then we both started cracking up.

A couple weeks ago I got glutened. At the bottom of our stairway, we have a set of four lightswitches. The second one in is the one to turn on the light in our family room. So I went to go turn the light on. And it wasn't going on, but our hallway light was. I must have sat there messing with those switches for five minutes. The hallway light, the upstairs light and the ceiling fan were all going on, but not the family room light. I was getting SO mad (again, glutened). I was like great! Now I'm going to have to call a fricking electrician. Until finally I clicked the one switch I hadn't even touched because if I knew ANYTHING I knew it wasn't THAT one. And the light came on. It was the second one in, but the second one in from the right. I had been trying to click the second one in from the left.

What a moron. :rolleyes:

:lol:

Loved all your replies, I don't feel so alone.

I don't mean to tell tales, but I have a cute one on my mums behalf.

As we live on different islands, I get the usual birthday, christmas cards etc. I don't know what it is, but she will address my mail as Mrs Katherine Whoever, but on the card itself, she will call me Catherine! I can not understand this, but she gets it right half the time. Could it be because english is her second language? But then she named me. I am picking that Catherine in Yugoslav is predominantly spelled with a K. But it so cute and endearing, and so different. How many mums can't spell their childrens names correctly?

I guess i have inherited a silly gene from my mum.

Yesterday......digging through my purse so I could find my keys to let myself in the house......digging more....taking things out........finally decide they're in my bf's car, so I turn to go back, all annoyed with myself, so I turn in a "huffy" way, and hear the lovely jingle of my keychain dangling off of my pinky.

He realized they were there a few seconds before I did, though, and he was looking right at me, so I guess I'm not the only one.
