not that there IS a competition, just joking around.

Anyway, I was at lunch with a friend today and we were talking away nintey to the dozen, same as usual.

I mix words all the time - I chose words starting with the same letter but have no relation to what I am trying to say (eg I may be trying to say reverse but say receive instead).

Well my friend asked my about my lupus - for some reason I was trying to say my SLE was acting up a bit, but instead I said in my normal loud voice in the middle of a cafe that my 'syphillis is acting up'

omg, how embarassing. My friend just collapsed laughing, so I did too - what else could I do ? She knew what I was trying to say, but it was just SO funny.

Some oldtimers out there will recall Louise Senior's "herpes and spices" slip of the tongue - it felt just like that.

still laughing about that one (although it will be quite some time before I go back to THAT cafe .....)

cheers

My mum- bless her, - she doesnt have Lupus but another autoimune thing plus Menopause! Anyway she was making the sauce for the Christmas Pud one year and called thro- "Do you want Bum or Randy in the white sauce" perhaps she had had a crafty Sherry but we have had "Bum and Randy" sauce ever since!!

LOL - Raglet - how embarassing.

I too mix up words - usually off by a letter or combine words, I once asked for custard in a resturant....I got a strange look when the waitress brought my custard...as I was eating a cornedbeef sandwich...and what I really wanted was mustard...

I did eat and enjoy the custard and ate my sandwich dry.

Hubby now orders me a corndbeef sandwich with a side of custard...

Love - Stephanie

My dear Raglet,
Thank you for the best laugh in weeks! I have been having trouble with the same thing occasionally but yours is much more fun.
It reminds me of an incident when our genius daughter was a teenager, long before her PhD, was in the grocery store with her Mother. Passing a display of cat food tins Stephanie commenting on a dented can, she meant to say "That could give you ptomaine [poisoning]." What she did say was, "That could give you syphlis!"
We still laugh about that one.
And it proves that "Lupus fog" can happen to anyone.

:rotfl::rotfl:Thanks for the giggle Raglet.:rotfl::rotfl:

I haven't said anything that funny. But I have called my son Keebler (my dog):eek: He just looks at me and laughs.:hehe: Keebler looks at me like what in the world are you talking about.:lol:

My DIL was driving when we went shopping. I keept saying turn at the stop sign, when I meant turn at the next set of stop lights. When it was time to turn at a stop sign I used lights for that.:eek: I tried my best not to say it but my mouth wouldn't listen to me.:hehe:

Take care,
Lyn
