If I were a blonde…

Let me throw up my disclaimer early.

::Blonde jokes…there’s a ton of them. If you’re blonde; real or boxed, I’m not saying you’re dumb. Kapeesh?::

If I were a blonde, I could say I had a complete blonde moment the other day. …and every other time I do something completely and utterly stupid.

Take for instance my fireplace. I spent well over 30 minutes getting it to light (its gas). I held my fire starter thingy up against the pilot, while pushing in the pilot ignition over and over and over again and it would never ever light.

My thumb was killing me from pushing it in for so long. I finally gave up (even though I lit it just fine the previous year) and called my landlord to have maintenance come out and light it for me.

I was baffled at it not wanting to light and couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was wrong with it. I would sit and stare at it, completely confused.

Then yesterday, maintenance walks in and you want to know the 1st thing he does?!?

TURNS ON THE GAS!

I’m an idiot.

I can't stop laughing. As we say in this family, that's a 'hurts when I do this' moment!

This sounds like something I would do. My husband and I have moments like this all the time. I'm trying to do something, exclaim that it's broken, then my husband silently walks in, "fixes" it and walks away. I know he's secretly rolling his eyes most of the time. : )

bahaha! I love blonde jokes, but only because I am blonde so I am allowed to laugh. No one else is. So there.
