Jibber Jabber

"Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb." I've felt a little bit like this lyric from Smash Mouth's "All Star" recently.  I know I have the knowledge in there but my head, okay mostly my mouth, is so dumb right now.  And darling Josh who has been married to a language freak all these years is slightly in heaven as he mentally records all the dumb things I've said recently.  He is good to not correct me or tease me, but I'll see the little smile cross his lips and I know...blast!  I did it again.

Examples to go down in family humor history: 

I started grilling dinner and Josh was finishing up for me.  I saw he was looking around for the grilling utensils and I said, "Oh!  I left the tonsils out there for you."  Tongs, folks, not tonsils.

Last night, we were making plans for dinner and I said, "Well, I did de-thaw some hamburger."
We were swimming in the pool and I got a cramp in my foot.  I said to Josh, "I have this terrible cramp!  What do they call them, you know something about a horse." This is where recall came in and I proclaimed, "I have a horse hickey on my foot."  Josh did openly laugh at this one as he gently asked, "You mean a charlie horse?" 

Right...... I meant charlie horse.
