Anyone want to admit to saying some really dumb things lately to help me feel better? lol

At my doctor's appointment last week, the doctor was recommending a new OB for me to switch to, since he quit delivering babies shortly after I had my son. He recommended one man & said "He's great; he delivered my granddaughter." My genius self said, "Oh my gosh, Dr. Bryan, you didn't deliver your granddaughter?!?!" He just looked kinda amused & said "No, that's my daughter, ya know." I tried to laugh it off, but I just felt so embarrassed & I still do! I HATE when I stick my foot in my mouth & say stupid things like that. I should so try to think before I speak...

Anyone want to make me feel less alone? Puhleeeease? : )

  • Why was what you said embarrassing? That he'd see his daughter giving birth? I admit that I probably would have said the same thing that you did. And been puzzled about his answer. :)
    Oh I said something embarrassing when I was leading a dance class. I thought the class was ready for a modification of the dance, and big mouth me said I ordinarily wouldn't introduce the move this early in the session but I felt they were ready. Well they weren't, and then I cast about for something to say but what could I say- sorry you aren't ready after all. * sad sigh * I've got to be more careful what I say.

  • At work the other day, I needed to get out the back door, which has a security alarm that requires a key to disengage. So I go and get the keys and turn off the alarm. Well, I go to see if anyone else needs anything from storage since I am headed out there. I say "Does anyone need storages from the supplies?" Everyone looks at me and I say "No, its cool, I already disfigured the alarm." I hadn't slept in days and it finally caught up to me.

  • I like pickled eggs and my family finds it gross. While we were on the topic of "pickled foods"
    my mom said something about pickled Okra and I asked "How do you grow pickled Okra?" and I was being serious. OMG. I felt so dumb lol.
    My mom was like "No, you grow the Okra THEN pickle it."
    I knew that but I just had a dumb moment I guess and didn't think about it.

  • I say dumb stuff all of the time. I am one of those people I imagine are really awkward to be around because I always have something idiodic to say. lol. But I dont get embarassed easily so I laugh at it and forget. I went to watch an on demand movie. Cant remember the name of it..... but the description just said something like this woman cant hold on to a relationship because of a secret she has....sounds good right?? WRONG! It starts off she is sitting on her couch reading a book and keeps looking down at her dog. She gets up, pulls her hair back in a pony tail. Next scene she is rinsing her mouth out with a ton of mouth wash. Then goes to say "I blew my dog....I dont know if I was just bored or what.." "Wouldnt it be funny if I mentioned it at a party? So does anyone else know what dog semen tastes like?" LOL That was the only thing I could think of when I read this question.

  • I will tell the story of what one of my friends said. I'm pregnant with my 3rd baby and I have one boy and one girl, and my DS is the oldest. So my friend was asking me what I wanted this baby to be, and I said it didn't matter to me. She said, "Well maybe it will be a girl, then Aly can be a big sister." I was like, UUMMM, she will be a sister whether I have a boy OR a girl. lol. It was funny.

  • So renea, since you don't have any younger boys does that mean your son isn't an older brother? Is he an only child?? LOL.

  • Ahhh, I just thought of another one I said recently. I'm really a pretty intelligent individual, believe it or not. Please keep that in mind... lol. My friend's boyfriend lives in Washington state. She was joking that she was going to move there & that when my son gets older, we would have to come visit. I said, "Oh, okay, I guess I can convince my husband that we need to go on a vacation to Spokane, Washington by using the excuse of 'taking Gage to see the capital' while we're on the way there'." I immediately started laughing, because I knew I'd said something much less than brilliant. I really did know that the capital is Washington, D.C., but I guess I had a momentary loss of all previous knowledge... : /

    I've enjoyed reading everyone else's responses! Thank you for helping me to NOT feel like the only one who manages to stick her foot in her mouth!

  • mine's pretty bad. I was telling another friend about going to one of my guy friend's house... well I was telling her about the t.v. he had just bought and put in his room, and I said "I did a movie with him in his bedroom" I meant to say that I'd watched a movie with him!

  • I think that was a natural question and I would laugh with him, not at you! When I think about it, it is kind of funny! I was thinking, "yea, why didn't you deliver your granddaughter?" too!
