Ok he can be stupid some times too
A few days ago I decided to go and visit the family in NC and also to see a couple of friends and my "special friend." It was a great time. I love the new house and I had a fun time catching up and eating. The highlight of my trip was L.D's blunder. I am quite sure most of you are familiar with Wal-Mart and their Rollback signs on items that they stack out in the main aisles for display and impulse purchases, well apparently L.D. is not so familiar with the rollback signs. As my mom and I were strolling the aisles we stopped to think about what we wanted next and L.D. says, "Wow they have these sugar free now?" (referring to the single kool-aid type packets that you can add to a water bottle) My mother goes, "yeah they do." Then she asks L.D., "what brand is that?" L.D. responds without any hesitation, and much confidence, "Rollback." LOL; I lost it! He was thinking that the sign above the stack out referred to the product advertised. It took my mom a minute and some clarification from me to realize his blunder! Then she had to laugh too. He eventually realized the absurdity of his statement once I told him that the sign did not refer to the product name lol! I vowed to never let him live that moment down.....that's why I am blogging about it now! Thank you sweety for the laugh!
