    Palm sanded johnson

    I am a member of another list (musician) and we got into a conversation about taking care of your musical instruments. One member remarked that he had "palm sanded his Johnson" mandolin. He really heard about that one for years. To this day when we want to bring up miscommuncation and such all we have to do is mention it.
    So! What have you done in all innocence that came out just do wrong?

    This happened this summer when I was working at our local hardware store. Once a week or so, someone has to clean the bathroom in the store. It was my turn, so I'm in there taking care of business. There was a wash basin/sink in the bathroom where we could wash dishes if we needed to. You know those little wand things that have the disposable scrubbing pads on them for cleaning the toilet? Yeah, they look just like the ones you use for cleaning dishes with a sponge on the end.

    I used the dish sponge cleaner thing to scrub the toilet! Luckily no one used it to clean dishes before I realized what I had done. I got quite a few laughs from the boss after that!

    Should have just put it back.
    I told my prospective inlaws that I was ambiguous when I was really trying to tell them I was abedexterous. Both of them are college graduates and had a good laugh at my expense.

    Years ago, me and a co-worker were into spelling out words for awhile to mock our supervisor. He'd always say stuff like "Alright guys, back to W-O-R-K," or "ok, let's M-O-V-E it," or "we're gonna be makin the big B-U-C-K-S today."

    So, we were working outside one hot, summer day, and remembering my cooler full of Coca-Colas inside the building, I said to my buddy, "I'm outta here." He said, "Where you going?" I said, "I'm going inside for an ice cold C-O-C-K."

    I still laugh when I think of that.

    Our good friend, Karen (my son knows her as "Aunt Karen"), was over. She, my wife and I were talking, and the discussion turned to "stupid husband/boyfriend tricks." Karen described something that her former Significant Other did that even I, dense male that I am, recognized as a boneheaded move. I jokingly say: "So are you still putting flowers on his grave?" Karen looked at me and said, in a perfect deadpan: "As a matter of fact, I am."

    I had momentarily forgot that they had not broken up, but rather he had died of cancer and Karen had nursed him through. I may be 6'3", but I felt about 2 inches tall. I could not apologize quickly enough or enough times. After what seemed like an eternity, but what I'm sure was no more than 10 seconds, Karen burst out laughing - fortunately, she had known me long enough to know (1) that I am an inveterate smart-@$$ and (2) that I would do anything for her.

    That was 8 or 10 years ago, and we still laugh about it. I laugh, too, but it also serves as a reminder to think before I shoot off my mouth.
