Have you ever said or thought something and it makes you wonder if your brain is taking the day off. I remember not too long after my husband and I met he asked me if I wanted to go to Hawaii. Want to know what I said? I don't have a passport. Please understand that I have always live in the U.S. Don't ask me why I thought, in that moment, that Hawaii was another country.
That was my ultimate dumb moment until now. This new one is pushed to the top not only because the content of it but because it took me more that a minute to realize why it was a moment of stupidity.
Saturday I went grocery shopping. I was standing in the pickle section. I had grabbed the pickle chips for my husband's double-double, I had grabbed the pickle spears, and I started to pick out the relish for the double-double sauce. I was looking at the list of ingredients as I do with most new things I buy. Correct, I have never bought relish. Anyways, I am scrolling through the items when I read cucumbers.
I thought to myself, I wonder why they put cucumbers in pickle relish.
Occasionally, the thought came back to me and the only viable reasons that came to mind were to add a little something to the overall flavor or to mellow out the harshness of the pickle taste.
Fast forward to Monday morning. I am in the kitchen eating a pickle chip, out of the jar, I happen to glance down and look at the ingredients. Cucumbers.
It took me that long to realize my moment of stupidity.
This sleep deprivation is really taking a toll on my brain cells, obviously.
