Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Blunders and Baa's

Two days before my cousin was set to be married, I thought it would be a GREAT idea to go tanning. I did not have the patience to sunbathe outside, so I took the "cheating route" and wound up at a tanning salon. My skin is extremely fair, and I've had issues with tanning beds in the past. All I remember is the bed I was given that day seemed so darned cramped...and I could not, for the life of me, get their silly little radio to work. (ugh!) After putzing with the radio I decided to just lay in silence. I was relaxed and soaking up the harmful rays. Before I knew it, the bulbs shut off, and my session was over. When I sat up to get dressed I had an Oh $hit! moment. Laying on the tanning bed I had JUST spent ten minutes in was a towel...the towel was unfortunately laying in an area that ended up covering PART of my BACK! It left a large white square, surrounded by bright pink skin.
Instead of changing my dress choice, I just went with it. It was a spaghetti strapped red number. I was the center of a lot of giggles...I thought it was hilarious, even though it happened to me and not someone else. I will never forget that was filled with many good times :) Have you ever committed an "ultra" blooper? (I couldn't resist the pun! hehehe)


I really enjoy hearing different accents. Some of my favorite to listen to are southern accents and British accents. This morning I received a call from someone in the south. Her accent was thick. The phone conversation was short, but left me laughing...When she went to say "goodbye" all I heard was "baa" (ya know, like what a sheep says!). I was silent because it took me a minute to register she had actually said good bye, and was not impersonating the woolly covered animal. Misinterpreting accents is always a pleasant and silly way to start your day! Have you ever done a double take due to someone's thick accent?
