Sunday Summation

Apparently I should never attempt to be witty. I am sorry to all I may have offended yesterday with my oxymoron's. I should have stuck to clearly misunderstood and sweet sorrow. Just to be clear--I have a high regard for all those who serve and protect our country.

I may or may not have had this conversation when I was 14.

SETTING: Our church young women's group was having a special night called New Beginnings which involved all the young women, ages 12 to 18, gathering in the chapel for a program that had some speakers and musical numbers.

I may or may not have had trouble being reverent.

Me: (leaning over and whispering to the stranger sitting next to me) Look at that lady speaking, something is the matter with her eye. It's roving! Look--I'm over here--nope--I'm over here (leaning back and forth for emphasis) whoa--it's like it has a mind of its own. It's like, I've got my eye on you...and you...and you.......(snickering at my obviously funny observations)

Stranger: Yeah.....that's my Mom. She was in a car accident and now she has a glass eye...............................................................................................................................................





Talk about just shoot me now and put me out of your misery! TO this day I wish that were not a true story. Thankfully, she had a sense of humor and forgave me--after she let me sweat it out for the rest of the meeting.


But this is what I mean--it always seems so funny in my head. Something happens on the way to my mouth. *sigh*

In OTHER news:

Thanx for the bloggy love! To those who left me more than one comment and AND all those who answered my red neck, blue collar, white trash AND how you manage this blog thing--an extra one for you too! You can still earn extra entries --I am most interested about our color coded society---would love to know what you think!

ADD ON---I meant red neck, white trash, blue collar--color coded society. I just want to know what people define those as.

Funny story. I think we all have those "open mouth insert foot" moments.....some more than others!!

Cherie said...

We all have those moments and it is funny to laugh about them later!

I laughed at this one - oops! :D

Mikki said...

Your previous post was hysterical, don't apologize!!! You crack me up Lisa Loo, so just keep it coming!
So, white trash, I guess when I think of this phrase, I think of the lower class American who probably didn't finish high school, and is working at a low paying job, trying to make ends meet. The wrong side of the tracks person I guess. I really hate the phrase, because it's just so demeaning.
When I think of a redneck, I think of someone who is backwoods and ignorant.
Blue collar to me is again the guy with the tough job just trying to make ends meet.

White collar:
When you steal millions of dollars and get to choose which wrist is slapped. What do you think?

Carla said...

OUCH (on the first part)
Redneck-country folk
White Trash-sloppy bums
Blue Collar-hard working, under appreciated
which leads to White Collar? How come White Trash is a BAD thing, White Collar is the goal????

Carla said...

Oh yeah, and just WHO though of this color catgory thing??????
