Last night I laughed till I cried. It doesn't happen very often, so it was quite a momentous occasion. The reason for the hilarity? It was my hubby and his way with words again. You have to understand that for all his (many) wonderful qualities, Grant is not a good linguist and he often uses the word "thing" in inappropriate ways.
Our conversation last night went something like this:
Grant: "Did you hear on the radio about how they selected the woman to be hostesses at the Olympics?"
Me: "No, why?"
Grant: "It was crazy man! They had to have university degrees and their eyes had to be 3/10s the length of their faces and they had to show exactly eight teeth when they smile"
Me: "You're joking!"
Grant: "No serious, they had to practice by standing with a chopstick in their thing showing 8 teeth for hours on end"
ROFLOL. Of course by "thing" he meant MOUTH, but I had this really wacky image in my head of woman standing with chopsticks in their "you know whats" teeth bared. I was absolutely roaring, mascara pouring down my cheeks with Grant and the girls staring at me, verrry, verrrry puzzled.
Sorry, I will get my mind out of the gutter now.....
