So, in general I wouldn't say that I am a dumb person. Kind of oblivious/unobservant? Yes. I could tell you some stories about things that I should have noticed but didn't. But I will save that for another day. Today I wanted to share a couple funny stories with you to possibly give you a laugh/make you feel better about yourself.
The event that prompted me to put together this post will go first:
A while ago I was wondering what .com stood for. I had this brainwave that it stood for 'computer'. You know...that could make sense *blush*. Then I looked it up and it definitely doesn't stand for computer. (in case you're interested it stands for 'commercial').
I think my brainwaves are being affected by me standing too close to the microwave or something. Here are some other examples...
1. The phrase 'make ends meet'.
I got the definition of this right but...I thought it was "make ends meat" and "ends meat" represented enough money/enough to get by. Even though I know now that it is actually "meet", whenever I hear this phrase I can't stop myself from thinking "meat".
When I was a kid I thought that my street was called 9 Bing Crescent and it just so happened that I also lived at number 9. Oops. I thought it was amazing that my Grama's street name was also the same as her house number. Duh.
3. Disney with a G
When I was little I totally thought the D in Disney was a G. I pronounced it properly though; I guess I thought it was a silent G? It kind of looks like a G doesn't it? Well...a backwards G. Come on! Give me a break! I was just a kid!
Again, I had the meaning right but I thought it was "nip it in the butt". I still think "butt" whenever I hear this phrase. (and I imagine a person being nipped in the butt by a puppy)
5. The song "We are the Champions"
You know the part that goes "no time for losers"? Well, I thought it was "loota faloota". Don't ask me what I thought "loota faloota" meant. I still think it sounds like that.
I'm sure there are more but those are the only ones I can remember at the moment. Oh geeze, I love mistakes, they are so funny. Do you have anything like this to share with me? I'm going to have to think of a list of things that makes me look really smart to compensate for all of this stuff.
