Open Mouth Insert Foot

Say it Rah-shay By Aug 22, 2013 2 Comments

In which I am a jerk.


Today I committed the ultimate sin; I called a lady “Grandmom.”

Here are the deets:

There is a kid who comes to the library a lot. Like every day a lot. She hangs around playing on the computer and maybe reading a book or two. No big. There is another kid who looks kind of like Kid 1 and her grandmother is always looking for her. The lady whom I insulted really looks nothing like the grandmother of kid 2 but I kind of meshed the two people together and became the type of person whose name rhymes with cartouche.

I swear I was not trying to put her down, to be arrogant or any such thing. I really just thought

I think it’s going to be one of those days where I hide in the stacks and look for books and just ignore people.



I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.


  1. I spend so much time with my foot in my mouth that I’m currently on the hunt for shoes with mint flavored soles.

    If I find them I’ll ask for a 2 for 1 discount and share with you.
