Well, I had another foot-in-mouth moment last night. It was my daughter's homecoming game, and of course I had to go since the marching band was also performing (She'd have killed me dead otherwise!)
Our team actually slaughtered the opponents, 62 to 13, the kind of score I'm used to seeing in reverse!
Anyway, I was walking up to the ticket booth and noticed a bunch of stands set up selling merchandise for school spirit. I had no intentions of buying anything, but one sign caught my attention. It advertised, among other things, pom-poms, garters, and "neckless" (!)
I literally busted out laughing and asked the lady manning the table, while pointing at the sign, "Who the heck made that sign?!"
She replied, beaming, "My daughter!"
I said, trying to stifle my snickers, "She spelled "necklaces" wrong. I actually have a neck!" (Yes, that was mean, I know.)
The mom came around the table and spelled out, "N-E-C-K-L-E-S-S... Oh, she forgot the "E-S" at the end to make it plural! Ha-ha-ha-ha!"
The apple obviously did not have far to go in this family.
I forked over two bucks and got some necklaces. It was the least I could do.
