Quilt With Us

Why they should never let me leave the ranch...

We went to town today and saw some neighbors at the restaurant.  The wife is retiring from teaching at the local ag college and my mouth engaged before my brain.  I said something like, "Hey, didn't I see where you were retiring?  When's the big party?"  Aaaaand that's when my brain caught up with me.  The party was to be a surprise.  Her husband redirected well and we just went on, but I'm still MORTIFIED that I spilled the beans.  (She's a sharp gal.  It won't take her long to figure it out.)  

Me and my big mouth.  You'd think I'd learn to just say "hi" and move on before I get myself in trouble.  If anyone is looking for me, I think I'll be banished to the quilt cave.

If you're going to be banished somewhere, let it be the quilt cave!  After the fact, hopefully you'll realize your oops was bigger in your mind than it was in real life.  Either way, we've all been there!

Joan - I don't know about contagious, but I wish mine would kick in sooner rather than later.  :)

Meh, no biggee.  Everyone has parties when they retire.  Very innocent question IMHO.  Will have to do some introspection about having that brain catching up to mouth disease though.  Is it contagious?

Thanks for the moral support.  I'm still giving myself the proverbial beating.  After the party, I'll call and apologize - and hope it wasn't as big of a deal as it has become in my own mind.

I doubt that a retirement party could ever be a complete surprise, PQ, but I feel for you.  I've done it.  I'll crawl into the quilt cave with you!

LOL I can't count the times I have done that...she probably guessed it to begin with! She"ll be dressed to the nines until it happens. My hubby gave me surprise party and I looked like I had been cleaning attics all week!

There are worse things than being banished to "the quilt cave."

I agree with the others that we have all done the same thing at one time or another.

I think we all have shoved our foot in our mouth along the road of life at one time or another. She probably had a hunch there would be a party so you just confirmed it. lol
