I’m always trying to think of something to share on this blog. Here’s a good one:
Today, my husband and I are in a supermarket, headed towards a checkout register. Right before we get there, he finds another register without a line so suddenly changes his direction. He reaches out to grab my arm to bring me along, but the arm he grabs (gently, of course) doesn’t belong to me—it belongs to another woman. It doesn’t take long for him to realize what he’s done.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you were my wife,” he says (as he quickly lets go of her arm).
“I’m someone’s wife, but not yours. And don’t do that again,” she replies.
It was all taken well, and we got a chuckle out of it, but I’m sure at first it scared the living daylights out of her.
It’s good to laugh at the funny things we do without meaning to. I can’t count how many times I’ve been in a store talking to my husband only to look over and realize I’m holding a one-way conversation with a perfect stranger. (And the things I tend to talk about—what they must’ve thought!)
Oh well…gotta keep laughing. After all, we’re only human. 🙂
