Overheard

These are the transcripts of actual conversations between me and Number One Daughter. First up, last Thursday morning, on the elevator in our apartment building, going down:

NOD: Hey, Mom?
Me: Yeah?
NOD: You do realize that you are wearing your dress inside out ...?
Me: $#!@#!~

NOD tried to hold the elevator door closed AND the door to the parking garage closed simultaneously (which isn't easy under normal circumstances, nevermind when you are laughing your ass off) as I did a quick change.

Fast forward. Yesterday morning, elevator in our apartment building, going down:

NOD: Hey, Mom?
Me: What now?
NOD: Um, you do realize that you have that blouse on inside out ...?
Me: #~!@%^~!!

What's that saying? "Dress as though you already had your ideal job."

I think it means - inspect the seams before leaving the house.

It also means you are deep doo-doo when NOD leaves for Spain.

My grandma would do the same thing....she was 82....with Alzheimers.

Is that a medical condition?

Fashion Dyslexia?

I think blisters are more easily explained than being a ditz about dressing. Do you dress in a hurry? in the dark? with neighbors peeking in your windows?
You ARE in deep doo-doo when NOD goes to Spain.

No offense about the ditz part but ... you have given us no explanation to lean on in your defense.

so your ideal job involves taking your clothes off and putting them on again in a hurry.....

Rae said...

HA! That's hilarious. I say just wear it like that, start a new fashion trend!

david: Sadly, there IS no explanation. I think ditz about sums it up!

My kids did that a few days ago, but on purpose. They had decided it was topsy-turvy day, and everything had to be done the wrong way round.

Just adopt that attitude.

Bex said...

Very funny! I did that once in 7th grade. Put my pants on inside out. When I realized mid-way through the day, in earth science class, I was almost too mortified to move.

classic!

I think that it means that you need to turn the light on when you get dressed.
