Apparently my brain

Apparently my brain does not function like most brains. I mean I already knew that I was far from normal, but I thought there were more weirdos out there like me.

For example: Today I went with a group of friends to lunch at Olive Garden (super yummy). My friend Eva was telling a story about how she misunderstood her father when he called to tell her how to get rid of MOLES.

She thought he was talking about moles on your face
He was talking about the moles that dig up your yard. He said that you just have to use bubblegum. Well in her mind she thought how in the world would you get moles off your face using bubblegum. Basically just a really funny misunderstanding.

Well in my STRANGE mind I was off thinking about the movie Thoroughly Modern Millie. You know the part where Millie is tricked into believing that Soy sauce takes off stains. So later in the movie she puts soy sauce on this really expensive dress and the lady is yelling "SOOYYY Sauce".

Yep that's what I thought of.
My friends think I'm strange (and who can argue that one)

To make matters worse, before I know it I'm singing the Tapioca song from the movie. (hmmm... I really don't get out much right now do I).

So in honor of that. We are going to watch Thoroughly Modern Millie THIS WEEK!! Then maybe they will understand why I love the show so much.

You kow, I still love that movie. Maybe it is a St. Louis thing. Why is it that the things you consider wierd are perfectly logical to me?

I know the exact part of the movie you're refering too. Now that you mentioned the movie, I've got the song "Everything today is thoroughly modern" stuck in my head. I'm okay with that. I will be there when you watch the movie. Can't wait.

I hope it's okay that I found your blog and read it (blame Kate-it was on her blog!)! I LOVE that movie! It was one of those that my brothers said got "lost" because my sister and I watched it over and over again!
And, although I'm sorry that you broke your leg, I'm so glad you shared the story! I haven't laughed that hard in a while! I could totally see you on the ground asking for the meds! If I were there, I would have taken a picture for you...because I'm that kind of friend! So sorry you missed out on having that memory for you to look back on!
