Foot in Mouth

The other day a co-worker and I were complaining about the renovation of our gallery because it has been a colossal pain in the ass. So I ended up saying something to him like, "Well, it could be worse. It will end eventually and we'll survive. It is not like we are in Afghanistan and IUDs are being lobbed at us. We'll be ok."

He blinked and said, "Did you mean IEDs?"

RED FACE! RED FACE! RED FACE! I am such a moron! LOL!

Heyyyy, don't be so hard on yourself. I imagine that IUDs really WOULD be painful if lobbed at you with enough velocity. :)

I'm with Wendy. You just knew what they need - perhaps you could become the new minister of birth control... Action no. 1: Dropping IUDs from planes (plus some doctors to insert them). Okay, I'll better stop NOW!

Fab! I would have loved to have been there.

At least your scotch bottle didn't fall out from behind the painting, then you REALLY would have had egg on your face.

Exploding birth control is a hazard here in the U.S. A friend of mine lost her eyelash extensions when a condom was launched by insurgents near her manicurist's place.

Eh...if IUDs were being lobbed at me, I would probably die. Especially if used. I'm with you, sister. Lol!

rach said...

I think you know personally that I spend the majority of my life with my foot in my mouth- You've never met me and we have already shared one of those experiences haha!! And IUD versus IED?? I wouldn't have even caught that if you said it to me- potato patato! but it makes for a hilarious story!
