The Dumbest Thing I’ve Said In The Past Decade Was Today

The clerk, as to me I’m checking out of the motel: “Is your wife participating in Pedal to the Point this weekend?”

Me: “Yup. Riding two straight days for charity!”

Clerk: “She’s helping my family out. My sister was just diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.”

Me: “Oh, that’s awesome!”

*pause*

Me: “…I sure hope you know what I meant to say.”

Clerk: “You betcha.”

    One of the dumbest things I’ve ever uttered, at 9 months pregnant…”I can’t wait for the baby to be born so my life can get back to normal.” Almost 18 years later, still reeling from the stupidity of that remark.
