A funny thing that happened to me today

  1. 12 This morning I decided to run down to the health department to get my final Hep B shot. I take my 8 yo daughter and her best friend with me and as I am signing in they ask me "Can we have some?" I am assuming they are talking about the bowl of candy because they are saying "I want a purple one, no a green one, wait I want a red one.............." I tell them "yes, you may both have one piece, if you sit down quietly" The lady behind the counter gives me a strange look that I don't give a second thought to. I then turn around to the girls saying "what is it?" to each other and realize they have condoms! OMG I just told these 8yo girls they could have condoms, NOT candy--now I completely understand the strange look and am absolutely mortified! Needless to say I had to explain that they needed to put those back and they were not for little girls but instead meant for adults. A lesson in sex ed took place for them this morning then when I returned home I had to explain to the other Mom what I had done and she thank goodness got a good laugh out of it an was thrilled it happened to me and not her!

    Thanks for posting 3xmom! I needed a good laugh. And don't worry, what happened is completely understandable. At least you caught it before they opened them, and tried to blow up their new balloons : )

    I would have doubled up laughing so hard, right there and then.
    I would have been more amused than mortified.
    That is genuinely funny

    OMG...that's so funny! Your girls probably didn't even think twice about it.

    It reminds me of the time I took my daughter to the store. She was about the same age -- around 8 years old -- at the time. She had just come into a little bit of money, and was pointing out all the different things on the shelves she could buy.

    "I could buy that," she said, pointing to a box of Band-Aids.

    "Yes, you could," I said.

    "I could buy that," she said, pointing to some allergy meds.

    "Yes, you could," I said.

    "I could buy that," she said, pointing to a box of condoms.

    "No, you couldn't," I said.

    "Yes, I could," she said.

    "No, you couldn't," I repeated.

    "Yes," she insisted. "I could! I have enough money!"

    "No!" I said emphatically. "You can't! Those are for big people!"

    The old man standing behind me cracked up laughing. I joined him, pulling my daughter to a less embarrassing aisle. Where they sold tampons. She muttered the entire way.

    "But I really do have enough money..."

    (I hope you don't think I hijacked the thread. Your story just reminded me of that day.)
