Not the Dumbest Thing I've Ever Done

Because, let's face it, that's setting the bar pretty high. You're not likely to approach the dumbest thing I've ever done unless you add at least two shots of tequila to the equation.*

I gave Lula a bottle of nail polish.
She wanted to be like Jayne.
She did a pretty good job, no?

Okay, okay. I painted the baby's toenails.

Bump shakes his head every time he sees it, but he has to begrudgingly concede that it's cute.

I should probably also admit, in the interest of full disclosure, that mine match.

*Now I'm wondering, what is the dumbest thing I've ever done? Hey, this is a great chance for audience participation! Leave your nomination for the dumbest thing I've ever done in the comment section, and we'll see who comes up with the best answer.

And the nominees are:

1. "You're going the wrong way....again."

2. Hyperventilating over the oscars.

3. Any bet involving mystery shots, the Giants and the Vikings, or fixed NBA games. (Although time has validated your suspicions on that front.)

LHM, are you sure you want to start this?

How about feeding Johnny Walker an entire bottle of Johnny Walker and consuming nearly as much yourself?

Leaving your poker chips at my house (maybe not dumb, but certainly cruel to me).

Drinking Chutes and Ladders with tequila has to be high up there.

It is one of the dumbest things I've ever done, and I was with you.

I once tried to turn the steering wheel from the passenger seat because then boyfriend, now hubby, wasn't listening to directions and was taking the wrong airport ramp. My future FIL was in the back seat. My god, I still can't believe I did that.

(Squee! over the baby toes, btw!)

Baby toes are so scrumptious.

I guess one of the most stupid things I've ever done is started a PhD. What a way to drive yourself into some sort of mental disrepair. Stooooopid!

And then there was the time that I told my preschool teacher than an "octopus has eight testicles." My parents are still getting mileage out of that one...

I guess I will have to say Drinking Chutes and Ladders with tequila because it is one of the dumbest things Sarah has ever done and she was with you and I was with both of you.

So I guess that would be doubleshot of dumb.

I was going to be really impressed that Lula did that, but I am still impressed knowing it was you. I can't do that well on myself, and my nails are a good bit bigger than hers. (and - happy birthday)
