My family has been really sick lately, but yesterday my hubby was feeling much better, so he offered to make a much needed run to the store for me. I made him out a list, and just as he was walking out, I realized we were out of bananas (definately a much needed item for my kids) So, I ran to the door and hollered for him to get "a bunch of bananas", meaning 1 bunch. Well my hubby thought I meant a whole lot of bananas, because a couple hours later when he comes walking in he has an entire grocery bag full of bananas! LOL We definately got a good laugh out of it, and my little monkeys are happy, because so far they had bananas with supper, for snack, and with breakfast!
Another time was about 4 years ago when my oldest was 3. We had a couple outside cats who were always trying to sneak inside. One day, when we were all walking in the house one of the cats managed to sneak in. Without even thinking I told my son to "throw the cat out" meaning to pick her up, take her out, and set her down gently. OOOPS! We had a flying cat before I realized what I had just said! Thankfully the cat wasn't hurt, but she never did try to sneak in after that. LOL
Anyone else have such brilliant moments?
