What was I thinking Wednesday

I wasn’t going to do a what was I thinking post this week.  A Memphis post is calling me!  But Julie and her boys were out last night, and she convinced me that Wednesday is Wednesday, and a promise is a promise.  Besides, she likes to laugh at with me.

So once again, I will share with the world exactly how much of a ditz I can be.


I cannot roll my tongue.  It seems the whole rest of the world can.  And when my family gets bored, they invariably start a tongue rolling contest.  That always leads to a challenge to me to roll mine.  And I can’t do  it! 

Last night it happened again.  They started the disgusting tongue rolling thing.  What they didn’t know is that my Oncologist and I had gotten into a discussion about tongue rolling (she can’t do it either) and she said it was not something learned but rather you could either do it or couldn’t.  It is hereditary.  And I didn’t inherit it!  So I attempted to tell this to my tongue rolling fools.

Unfortunately what I said, though, was that I was talking to my GYNEcologist about it…  well the imaginations took over and the conversation went swiftly down hill from there.


And here’s one from my not too distant past.

I am an avid coffee drinker.  Most of you know that I run a part time embroidery business out of the upstairs of our garage.  Since it is part time, it is sometimes days, or even weeks with the shop (I refer to it as the loft) closed up.

One day I headed to the loft to work, and was greeted by a decidedly unpleasant odor when I opened the door.  Hmmmm…  I looked around and didn’t see anything wrong.  I went about my business, with my senses on high alert.  I finally spotted my very tall coffee cup sitting on the cutting table.  It had mold in it.  Wow.  Could mold really smell that bad.  I picked the cup up to throw the stinkin’ coffee away.  It sure was heavy.  That is when I saw it.  A mouse had crawled into the cup, couldn’t get back out, and had died.  Serves him right for drinking  my coffee.

Memphis and Uncle Cy posts up soon!

Rolling your tongue. Funny do you know how many people were trying it as they read your blog? Too funny . . .oh yes I was one of them too.

As for the mouse, what a way to die, full of caffeine!

can't roll my tongue here either. oh my gosh, that mouse!!! I hope he enjoyed some of the benefits of caffeine before it did him in. (How's it going on the South Beach Diet?? Hubby has lost over 13 pounds on it, I know I've lost weight but I'm not ready to get on the scale :)

Sorry, I can roll my tongue as well but my mother cant.
Why mice shouldnt become addicted to caffeine a lesson learned for the mice population of the world.

I remember as a child, when I realized I could roll my tongue, that one of your parents has to be able to do it too. My did could, but my mom couldn't. I think my sister can too. Weird.

Moldy mouse, lol. I probably would have thrown the coffe cup away. Don't think I could ever drink from it again, knowing a mouse died in it. Ewwwwwwwwww

See, caffine really is bad for you!
