On a relative of ours, “Well, let me tell ya, she ain’t the sharpest cookie in the drawer”
If you’ve ever encountered someone hard of hearing, you may notice a particularly annoying tendency.
Upon hearing sound coming out of your mouth, Klez-Mom will take her best stab at guessing WHAT you said. More often than not, she’s off. By a long shot.
Here goes the first edition of the weekly WHAT?
- Brother – “I have a sore muscle. Mom, do we have any tiger balm?”
–> “WHAT? You want a bong?”
- Sister – “I want to get my co-worker cashmere wrist cuffs?”
–> “WHAT? You want to give her pull-ups?”
- Friend, talking about an old teacher – “I’m pretty sure he ended up facing molestation charges”
–> “WHAT? Your teacher threw molestation parties?!”, Laughs hysterically
Sitting in the car ride, discussing a day of shopping with Klez-Mom and friend. Friend has just been dropped off.
“I don’t know who it was, but either you or your friend kept farting all day. Every time I walked past you, it smelled. Was it you, or was it her?”
“How should I know?”
