Sometimes I say dumb things.
Example 1: A few weeks ago, Brad and I were at the Pharmacy to pick up a lotion prescription for Brad, and when the Pharmacist put Brad’s name and information in the computer, she noticed there was an “Emily Goodsell” in the computer too. She said, “Oh, there’s an Emily Goodsell also. Is she your mom?” I was so excited that someone knew I existed that I quickly and excitedly said, “NO! Sister!”
Oh, how stupid. Then Brad had to explain that I’m actually his wife. And since I couldn’t stop laughing, Brad sent me away to get groceries. Yes, I’d say that was dumb.
Example 2: Today we spoke in church, and I mentioned that I’m from Rupert. After church, a guy from the ward approached us, and here’s where I get really dumb.
Man: Do you have a sister who is a lot older than you?
Me: I have one who is five years older than me.
Man: Hmm. I don’t know. My best friend from high school married a girl from Rupert, and I guess I was just somehow hoping she’d be your sister. I don’t even know her maiden name…or her first name.
Me: Well, if you ever figure out her name, I’m sure I know her. Rupert is pretty small.
Man: Yeah. All I know is her husband’s name. It’s Luke Wait.
Me: Really? That’s weird. That’s my brother-in-law’s name.
OH! STUPID! That’s who he was talking about.
