Mary, over at MaryJMelange.com left a comment on my post on Monday. She mentioned how she and her ex had different definitions about what makes a good Mac & Cheese dinner. Mary preferred the more traditional version, you know, the kind made with macaroni and cheese, while her ex preferred Kraft. The blue box. The standard. Her comment reminded me of one of the dumbest things I’ve said since being married to The Editor. Well, I’m not sure anything really tops:
“you don’t even really look pregnant; you just look a little fat”
But, I’ve used that before.
No, if I recall correctly, this incident was before The Editor was pregnant. One night, I came home from work, and she had made baked macaroni and cheese. This had been an arduous affair requiring a cheesy sauce and macaroni and more cheese and actual baking was involved. It looked delicious. It tasted wonderful. I looked at her and said:
“This is every bit as good as Kraft!”
And I meant it.
This true story is one of many stupid things I have said, and it’s also part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, I’d encourage you to join in on the fun. You can follow this link to participate and two see the one-liners from the other participants.
