A friend (Lydia) emailed an idea for our college group to consider (we get together every quarter). This sentence had me shaking with laughter:
"There is also a huge Heritage Fair on the weekend of your birthday."
Pretty innocuous right? I promise you, this is no exaggeration or embellishment of my thought process....
"Wow! They must have a Fair every weekend because it's always someone's birthday!"
Then it got worse, because I followed that thought up with--
"Oh, you probably have to schedule the Fair --they probably only have the Fairs' on weekends they know a B-day person will be there!"
Even as I'm typing this, tears are streaming down my face because I'm laughing so hard at myself. I'm at Pizza Hut. People are looking at me sideways. Mothers are grabbing their children and towing them far, far, away from me because I can't stop laughing.
It took me three thoughts before I finally realized you were saying they have a Fair on the weekend that my birthday falls on--the weekend after Thanksgiving.
It has NOTHING to do with anyone's B-day.
Somedays I'm blonde.
Somedays the blondes out think me.
Guess which day today is?
