My sister and her friends used to say stupid, stupid, stupid quickly and bop themselves in the forehead when they said something dumb..and because I wanted to be like my sister in every way possible, I picked that up.
But, unlike my sister, I say something that would earn that little saying at least once a day. I have a habit of it I think. Maybe not as bad as some (ahem..Matthew was named Most Likely to Put His Foot in His Mouth by his graduating class), but still.
So, in an effort to be completely honest and forthright, I decided to share some of those moments with you.
There was the time that an ex-boyfriend showed me a picture of his uncle, and was telling me some stories about him. I asked how old he was and he told me he was 57, then his brother said "Well, he was 57, but he stopped having birthdays a few years ago"
"Oh" I said, "He just didn't want to tell people he was older? Haha I thought only women did that" I giggled.
They both just stared at me.
"No Bekah" he finally said. "He died a few years ago."
Stupid stupid stupid!!
Then there was that time I got in trouble in french class. My dad had to come to the school, I don't even remember what I did.
"Dad!" I said, "It's not my fault, it's Madame, she just mean! She hates me because I am young and she is not!"
"Uh Bekah, I think you should stop talking."
"No Dad! I don't care! She is awful"
*She wasn't awful, she wasn't great, but she wasn't awful. I was just mad*
"Um hon" he looked over my shoulder.
I turned around, and there she was. Glaring at me. Oh. My. Gosh.
Stupid stupid stupid!
There are just so many times I have done this. Am I the only one?
