Does your stupidity in a conversation still haunt you?

Have you ever just had a "blond moment" that you won't let yourself live down?...........before you get upset with me......I'm a blond myself. Have you ever said something so Duuuuuuuuhhhhh! that you still remember it even years later? I've had plenty. One in particular happened when I was dental assistant. We were told to make small talk with patients to keep them comfortable. I was busy setting up instruments and chatting away with my patient. He was telling me about his favorite TV show, which was "murder one". He told me that the show followed a trial from its beginnings all the way through the case. Each season was a single case. I asked "So is the crime always a murder?".........A blank look from the guy........... "Yes.".............Hello?! What was I thinking? ...........hmmm..... "Murder One?"............ya think it might be about murder trials?!!!! The worst part is that it didn't really hit me what I'd said right away. So I never said anything to him. How about you? Got any stories?

I'm not a morning person either. It takes me awhile to get my brain going. Hey....maybe that guy was a morning patient and I can use that as an excuse, ya think? Thanks:)

I have had plenty and Im also blonde ha ! we shouldn't start something that people can throw back at us here ! Sometimes you just think " I am such an idiot !" We had this saying that when you pick up weight you must watch out before you start looking like the bus in SPEED (the movie) My friends mom only caught half of it and one day we were sitting in the kitchen and she said "I better stop eating before I look like the bus driver in SPEED ( she has never seen speed before )so I was triyng to correct her but it all came out wrong when I said " No ,you probably mean the bus ! " I was soooo embarrassed she thought I was insulting her !I lost brownie points of course !

I'm sure I've done such, but I don't remember them thankfully. There is something to be said for getting older.
