Fly on the Wall: The Typo Edition

Welcome to a monthly Fly on the Wall group post. Today 15 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house. At the end of my post you’ll find links to this month’s other participants’ posts. Feel free to go laugh at goes on in their lives too!

Sadly, here’s something I did not want to be known for (and lesson learned). When leaving a comment on a friend’s blog, I didn’t proofread before submitting it to be permanently on her blog and associated with my name. So in the middle of a thoughtful sentence, instead of “it’s not”, it says “it snot”.

Here’s another typo and the reason I’m glad my kids don’t read my Facebook page or I’d never live this one down. I mentioned in a FB post that I was sort of bored with my winter meals and looking for something else to make. I asked what everyone’s favorite dinner was and my friend Sarah of The Momisodes mentioned Pot Roast. That’s a favorite of mine too so I answered her that I love Pot Roast too. Except somehow I hit “enter” in the middle of typing so my answer was “Ooooh, I love pot”.
Good thing you can edit those answers or I’d have to leave town.

And one more this month because clearly typo bad luck comes in threes:
I was on Facebook private messaging with a friend. She asked about a conversation we had been having with a third friend, Susie (name has been changed to protect the innocent). Susie had been talking about an ex who this friend didn’t know. I told her the ex wasn’t very nice but was very, very nice looking. She asked if I had a picture and I told her I’d email her one.
When I sent the email the friend answered: You’re sending me porn? I’m not opening that attachment.
Huh? What the hell was she talking about?
I looked again at the email I sent her.
What I meant to say was: Attachment is Susie’s ex picture.
What I typed was: Attachment is Susie sex picture.

Me: College Boy and I were thinking of bringing in Chinese food for dinner if that’s OK with you.
Hubs: That’s fine.
Me: You don’t sound too excited, if you’d rather I cook something I will.
Hubs: No, I certainly don’t want you to cook anything.
Me: Why don’t you rethink how you worded that while I move your blanket and pillow to the couch in the basement.

Right around 1:00 pm on a Saturday, College Boy finally made his way out of bed. I’d already been to the grocery store, had dinner simmering in the crockpot, done a load of laundry, done the dishes, made a cake and was about to make the frosting for the cake.
Me: You’re up. Hope you didn’t have anything you had to do today, the day’s half over.
College Boy: It’s the weekend. Everyone knows there’s nothing you absolutely have to do on the weekends.
Me (looking around the kitchen): Really? Is that true? What is this magical weekend thing of which you speak? Where do I sign up?

I was watching TV on a Sunday afternoon during a snowstorm.
Me (yelling): Oh, they just canceled school tomorrow!
Hubs comes up the stairs from the man cave: You do realize that there’s no one here who cares about school cancellations anymore, right?
Sheesh, having no one in the house who goes to the local schools sure takes the fun out of seeing those cancellations at the bottom of the screen.

I tried a new recipe for dinner. None of us were thrilled. One of us needs lessons in tact, however:
Me: This is not going to be my new favorite meal.
College Boy: No, I don’t love it either.
Hubs: Be sure you don’t accidentally post this on your blog, your friends will think you’ve gone nuts.

The next night Hubs went out and brought in Italian food for dinner. I told him what I wanted and he ordered and left.
When he got home I was pulling the food out of the bag and asked what he’d ordered. He’d gotten spaghetti.
We sat down and while we were eating I asked how his dinner was.
Hubs: Good. I’ve never had these chicken meatballs before. I don’t know what they’re made of but they’re good.
Me: I think they’re made of ground up pigs’ ears and tails.
Hubs (looking slightly green): Pigs’ ears? And tails? Disgusting. I’m not eating that.
Me: well, either that or. . . you know. . . they’re made of chicken.

You all have these kinds of nonsensical conversations too, right? It’s not just me, is it?
Me: I’m freezing.
College Boy: It’s not that cold in the house.
Me: It’s really cold outside, I can feel it in the house. And it’s going to get worse, they’re saying tomorrow we’ll have a little snow in the morning and in the afternoon it’ll be really windy and freezing cold.
College Boy: Outside?
Me: No, in the house.

I'm not sure but I may have cheated on my husband. If I did, it was totally not my fault.

I've never told anyone, I'm keeping my dirty little secret.

I know this guy through blogging, I have for over a year. He seems to be a nice guy and caring father. His blog posts are thoughtful and kind. He asks others to join in on some group posts that he does on a regular basis and I always have fun with them.

And then one day, out of the blue, he poked me on Facebook.

It's true. I've been poked by another man. And I haven't told a soul, but I think the guilt is starting to get to me.

*Immediately add the cereal, sprinkles and 3/4 cup marshmallow's you'd set aside. Mix and pour into prepared dish. Pat down to equalize the thickness. Set aside.
*In a microwave safe bowl, met the candy melts according to the package directions. Once completely smooth, pour over the krispie treats and spread evenly over the top. Sprinkle with colored sugar.
*Decide how large you want your squares and place whatever fruit or candy you're using for decoration onto the melted topping so that when you cut around them, one will be in the center of each treat.

  2. Yay, it looks like my browser at the office allows me to comment!

    C told me a joke the other day: two elderly ladies go to a Chinese Restaurant. The waiter brings napkins and chopsticks. One lady goes "Young man, we have come here to EAT, our knitting meeting isn't till Thursday!"

    We might do a "top ten typo" post one day. There will be a lot of stuff, I'm sure! It snot, hahaha!

    I would like to know where moms can sign up for the magical nothing to do weekend thing, too. Let me know?

    I think I know your "poker"!

    1. Yeah, I thought I'd have nothing to talk about in these Fly on the Wall posts after the kids were gone, but Hubs keeps me stocked up with material.

  6. I still watch the school closings religiously even though we haven't had school aged children in a very long time. Maybe I'm practicing for the grandkids when they go to school. Either that or I am a crazy old woman who has nothing better to do haha! Wouldn't it be wonderful to get to sleep until noon one day? My conscious would kill me! It's a nice dream though when I'm sitting here at 4 am !

    1. Yeah, that whole sleep thing, it's way underrated. No matter how much I get I could always use more. But there's always so much that has to get done.

  7. Your typos are a lot more fun than mine. I can't remember any good ones but I make up for it by tripping over my words when I speak. When addressing a large group of women regarding child issues, I meant to say success in potty training but said Sex in potty training. I didn't skp a beat and couldn't figure out why everyone was snickering

  10. OMG I do the "snot" thing ALL THE TIME! Ugh! I also type "donut" a lot instead of "don't", which I'm convinced is a Freudian slip. I really would rather have donuts.

  11. We don't have anyone that would be affected by the school cancellations but I always watch for them. I'm always hoping my work might be listed on there...

    I'm glad you came out about being poked by another man...now you can move forward and focus on your relationship with your hubby 😉

  12. Oooh Karen and a blogger, sitting in a tree, P-O-K-I-N-G (why couldn't there be a double letter in there?) I feel your disappointment about no one in your house being affected by local school news, I get excited every school holiday, only to remember 1. I am no longer in school and Miss K hasn't started yet, and 2. My job is never affected by semester holidays, so I still have to work. It's always such a sad moment.

    1. I know. I don't think I'll ever stop getting excited when I see our school district listed.

    2. First I am not sure if I should thank you for making me laugh so bloody much when I have a stinking rotten headache, but you did, secondly oh how I hate it when you go back and read a comment left on a blog and find sill mistakes in it that changes the whole comment, I could tell you I never do that, but that would be a lie and I try not to lie unless I am tired then lying down is good but that is a different lie isn't it. Oh yeah this is my first visit, will I be back well since you have follow via email you bloody hell bet I will be back..............just saying

    3. So glad you you're not going to hold making you laugh with a headache against me and have decided to come back. I'll be checking out your blog as well.

  14. You Facebook trollop. LOL. Admitting is the first step to healing, K.
    That green peep! Where did you find them? Jonah and I would have fun making your recipe.
    Thanks for admitting your typos. I make so many, but never seem to notice them until I've hit "Publish". I'd like to think my mind is working faster than these old digits. <3

    1. You and Jonah should definitely try these treats, they're so easy to make and festive to serve. In fact, instead of leaving some of the mini marshmallows out to add whole, you could just chop up some Circus Peanuts . . .

  15. I have a few girlfriends that text back on forth throughout the day; our typos keep us rolling at times. You have to find the hilarity of it as we can all relate. I correct the "obviously missed" typos before I approve typically.
