Given that he doesn't have a QWERTY keyboard on his phone, Jason isn't much of a texter. But while he was taking finals last week, he shot me a number of quick little one-liners from campus. They were all funny, but my favorite was when he quoted The Princess Bride (since it's still one of the best movies of all time). He quoted Vezzini's line, "You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is 'never get involved in a land war in Asia' - but only slightly less well-known is this: 'Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line'!" And he added, "And never take a 300 level Economics class without having taken Calculus!"
It made me giggle all day. Or at least for like 5 minutes.
Anyway, I started thinking, what are some other classic blunders? These are a couple of classic blunders that I've made over the years.
- Trying to coming up with coherent Tweets before the coffee has kicked in.
- Okay, trying to do ANYTHING coherent before the coffee has kicked in.
- Thinking you can clean a sippy cup that got lost for 2 weeks with milk in it.
- Going on a date night with your spouse in a town you don't know and forgetting to check the address of where you're staying and getting lost for 3 hours.
- Going to see Spiderman 3 for said date night.
- Deciding to clean out the freezer the day AFTER garbage day.
- Trying to ease your way out of a phone conversation with me.
- Allowing your kids to open a canister of Floam in your house.
- Putting liquid dish soap in a dish washer.
What classic blunders would you add to the list?
