I owned the shit out of being blonde back in the day. Every time I would say or do something stupid, I'd just laugh and blame it on my hair colour. Now that I have brown hair (and have had it for 3+ years) I have to find something else to blame this stuff on. Sometimes I even forget I was blonde, it looks so fake and weird in the photos, it's hard to believe it was natural for so long. Now I'm not saying blondes are stupid, obviously not. I know plenty of stupid people and their hair colour varies. I am saying that I have done some pretty stupid stuff, and I used to be blonde. I still do these things, so... guess it just comes naturally.
I always mix up my words. The other day, I said 'so-and-so from Stock Yards Phone is on the bank'.
Sometimes I just mix up the start of the words. The other day I asked KC 'are you still playing crivia track?' He laughed for a full minute before answering.
The other day, I got in my car, didn't start it immediately, locked the doors, did something on my phone and then went to start it. The 'alarm' started going off, which I had never heard before. I freaked out, naturally, got it to shut up and sheepishly backed out of the driveway. It was 6am, mind. Sorry neighbours. I told KC about it later, and he said 'you hit the panic button'. 'no I didn't!' I exclaimed, blushing because yep. That's probably exactly what I did, as I don't have an alarm.
I walk into things a lot. Like, a lot a lot. Like the wall that has been in my Nana's unit for 30+ years and somehow I still walk into it every time I'm there.
I was on the back of a boy's bike when I was like 15, he was going really fast down a hill and I jumped off because I was scared. I just jumped off, and landed - didn't even try to keep moving. Needless to say, I was pretty roughed up and the road destroyed my pants. I tried to play it cool but I really just wanted to cry!
When KC asks me to pass him some fancy pants tool like a phillips head screwdriver and I say, 'is that the star head one?' I literally had to ask KC which one was the star screwdriver for me to write that
I always walk on the left. This leads to me walking into people all the live long day. Normally around corners.
I always say 'you too' at the wrong moments. Enjoy your pizza - you too! Oh, I mean...
When I do something silly, like walk into people, I get all silly and laugh really awkwardly and loudly. Not cute. Really high pitched and loud.
When I'm sitting minding my business and someone walks around the corner minding their own business and I gasp like they jumped and yelled boo. I'm pretty jumpy.
I always push instead of pull or pull instead of push. Sometimes I wait until someone else goes so I can see how they work the confusing contraption that is a door.
Sometimes I pull out on the other side of the road. Look, it's confusing, ok? Luckily there is normally a car coming at me for me to realise my mistake.
I always forget about turn on red right turns. People behind me normally let me know.
I feel really stupid when I go to a coffee shop and ask if I can have a non-coffee drink. Normally just strange looks at Starbucks and the like, but smaller shops can't do it and make me feel foolish for asking. You want a coffee drink without coffee? WHAT?!
I can't say specific without really pausing to think about it, otherwise it will come out as the dreaded pacific. I also can't say Wisconsin.
I have avoided day 27 of the 30 day yoga challenge because I thought it used bands, like fitness bands.. I was like, well I don't have them so I can't do it. Nope it's for the IT bands. D'oh. Pretty sure I have those...
I remember the day I realised why it was called 'afternoon'. Because it happens after noon. I was way older than I should have been.
We have a chocolate bar at home called a crunchie. That's what we call 'blondes' with brown hair. Brown on the outside, blonde on the inside. That's me.
Now I want a crunchie. Yum.
Help me out, anyone else do equally stupid stuff?
