Friday Fun Facts: Blonde Moments

I have my fair share of blonde moments and I think actually being blonde makes them worse. I have a few in particular that stick out in my head....



-I just realized about 2 weeks ago what the big fuss was over the Britney song If you seek Amy.... ohhh... this is after discussing at lengths for many weeks with my sister what I thought the meaning was, even though she tried to tell me many times I just never picked up on it. I finally saw it spelled out for me on a blog

- If you're from Maryland you know that many people add a "r" to wash. Well in second grade I raised my hand and asked my teacher why there was no "r" in warsh she kindly informed me that it was pronounce waa-sh. I have NEVER said it wrong since despite my whole family still saying warsh

-That same second grade year, thankfully my teacher was one of my mom's friends, I raised my hand again to ask why Los Angeles wasn't on the state map, to which I was told it was just a big city in California. I have never forgotten that one either.

- When K and I first started dating I would stop at green lights, all of them. I was so nervous that I got so overwhelmed that I would come to a complete stop almost causing accidents and pissing off a lot of drivers around me. The first 2 times he was sweet about after that I got made fun for about a year.

-Recently on a client proposal I saw BAR-$150.00, and I'm sitting there thinking what is B-A-R, I don't remember my clients ordering that. Thankfully before I opened my big mouth I realized what it was, I had a nice little chuckle at my desk.

Sooo fellow bloggers, what are some of your best blonde moments?

    I had a feeling you were from MD...me too!

    Blonde moments...well..I was a blonde when I was little...very brown now...
    anyways...I definitely say warsh and I have a hard time pronouncing Norfolk.

    I just remembered this one....many times when I was younger I didn't know the true meaning of words...I just used them b/c maybe I heard them and thought it made sense (still not knowing what it meant)...

    I think I was 13 maybe (and keep in mind...my sisters and I lived a sheltered life and parents were very overprotective)...but my sister and I were jumping on the trampoline...I remember laying down b/c I got dizzy and yelled.."I think I'm having an orgasm." hahaha
    I thought it meant you were dizzy and going to pass out...

  5. All of my Maryland cousins say "warsh"...lol! It cracks me up whenever I hear it and then they make fun of my so called Philly accent. We both argue that neither of us has an accent.

  7. i used to make fun of your sister all the time for saying warsh! (heeee).

    blonde moments (even though i'm no longer blonde) - i sometimes have to sneak a peek at my hands to remember right from left. when i was 9 i told my parents that i really wanted a dog like that one, and i pointed to it and said "you know, a canine." (i was thinking k9, as in a police dog) i almost walked the wrong way at high school graduation and i still get nervous (as in really sweaty) if i'm forced to do math on the spot.
