I thought ‘pregnant’ was ‘pregmant’ for a long time.

Fall_In_Love22:  “dead as a doornail” is correct. It’s in Shakespear’s Henry IV, it’s a super old saying.

When I was in 1st – 3rd grades teachers always circled a word on my writing assignments but never wrote a correction. I wondered about it but never asked. Thenl my mother saw a paper one day and burst out laughing. Turned out I  had been writing “ass” for “as” all that time! I always make sure to proof read my kids’ homework lol!  🙂

vatoca1016:  Hahaha hilarious!!

In my early school days I must’ve been in a geography class. The teacher gave every student a state, you say it out loud and then say a fact about the state. Well, my state was Arkansas. When it got to me, I pronounced it as it’s spelled Ar-kan-sas. The room burst out laughing. Someone said “You know it’s Ar-kan-saw right?” and I simply said “Well then they shouldn’t spell it like that then”.

Luckily I figured this one out pretty early, but growing up my family always referred to over-easy eggs as “gooky eggs” (no idea where this came from). I thought that was what everyone called them and the first time I said it outside of my own home was, well…embarrassing as hell.

I’m going to out my husband here.  He is 34 and is incredibly intelligent, I promise.  We were over at my bil’s playing a game similar to taboo. I had to get him to say ‘night owl’ so my hint was ‘nocturnal bird’ which I thought was pretty clear. My husband starts throwing out insane guesses and we run out of time. Finally the buzzer rings and i’m like ‘babe, NIGHT OWL’. My bil was like ‘how did you not get that?!’. Then my intelligent, wonderful husband looks at us, indignant and says “owls are not birds!’ So we’re staring at him, dumbfounded and I was like ‘um.  Yeah they really, really are.’ And he says ‘yeah but like in a different category. Like snakes’

 

I can’t.

Ok, this is embarrassing enough in itself.

So, we drove 3 hours away for our honeymoon. It was perfect – simple, peaceful, everything I wanted. We agreed that he would drive home and I would drive there. As I was driving up (it was a lot of open road driving), I saw a garbage truck. Without even thinking, I just said “holy shit, they have garbage trucks out here?!”…on an open but residential road.

I’m not the brightest crayon in the box, guys.

When I was young I thought that i was older than my older brother because my birthday occurs earlier in the month than him but not the same year. Hes five yrs older than me but by bday is Feb 17th & his is Feb 27th so I literally was so confused and told him NO I am older than you! He made fun of me for soo long. It took a long time for me to realize that it wasnt true.
