I wonder sometimes... why is it we tend to overlook others' goofs lots faster than we do our own?
Tho' sometimes prone to beat myself up over harmless missteps ... I'm so enjoying being 'this age' and learning to laugh them off.
Isn't this classic? I just want to jump into that cartoon with those gals!
Speaking of 'classic' ...
Something happened the other day which took me right back to '67:
Years later I went toe-to-toe with my boss, insisting "irregardless" is too a word.
Come to think of it, that was about the same time I learned my reluctance to eat chicken had absolutely nothing to do with chicken-fried steak.
One of my favorite stories surrounds my parents' excursion on a Russian freighter. The captain and crew really extended themselves, hoping their 30-some American passengers were enjoying themselves. Of course, that included an impromptu "Welcome Reception." The captain stood tall and raised his glass of champagne to the small assembly. In broken English he proudly exclaimed, "Up your bottoms!"
Don't you suppose every family or close-knit clan has their own favorite MIS-definitions or phrases that live on and on? I know of 2-3 that only a few remaining family members would 'get' -- but they're sweeter for the telling.
This isn't one of them ... but I hope my definition of a 'rear-view' mirror might catch on someday. LOL!
Have you a favorite 'uh-oh' moment that makes you smile all over again?
Hugs from toasty Phoenix!
