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

Hi Raglet,

My husband was not thrilled about going back to work after lunch today. When I told him your story he left with a huge smile. Thanks for the entertainment.

Take care,

Raglet, that's too funny! I have trouble coming up with the right word most times. My husband has too often had to provide me with the right word. He's come to be able to read my mind and gets me out of trouble all the time.

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
