I am back again doing the writer’s workshop over at Mama’s Losin’ It! This week’s prompt I chose is “Describe a moment when you put your foot in your mouth.” I really don’t think it is fair that it says A moment as in ONE moment. I have stuck my foot in my mouth so many times that my foot has started leaving a toothbrush at mouth’s house for all the sleepovers they have. However I am sure you would rather a short post since they have been long lately so I will play nice and pick one moment.
hmmmmmm… let me see… well there was that one time… no not that one.. oh what about when.. nah not good enough (patience people I am thinking of the perfect story). OH GOT IT! It’s perfect.
This one is from when I was a teenager. I was at the boyfriends house (name does not matter since he is now long gone), and the whole family was relaxing in the living room after dinner. He had a very obnoxious younger brother who everyone would pick on. Yes even his own family. So anyways we are all sitting around joking and picking on him and he was starting to go beyond obnoxious. Someone (don’t remember who now) told him he was adopted. Once he told them he wasn’t I said “No you weren’t adopted, you were a mistake”. The whole room fell silent. Ends up his father had gotten the big snip and it didn’t work so along came baby brother. I just responded saying “See I told you” and I walked out of the room and went outside. OOPS!
Editor’s Note: I do not mean to offend anyone. If I did and you were an accidental pregnancy then please let me know it is time for foot and mouth to have another sleepover and I will notify them. Thank You.
