Sometimes even I amaze myself.

On Saturday I had to move my home office furniture to my storage unit. The size of the pieces required me to move up two sizes to a bigger space to hold the furniture as well as the items in my smaller unit.

While there with a male friend (T), another storage tenant who is directly across from my old space came to swap out his motorcycles. T and he got to talking about cycles and such while the young guy put air into the tires of his stored cycle. T came back to me and said it might be a good idea to ask if we could use his air compressor to fill my bicycle tires which had deflated over the winter so that I could use it this summer.

I agreed, so T goes over to him, asks, and sure enough he’s happy to do it. I roll my bicycle his way and we start chatting it up as he starts working on the tires. Knowing NOTHING about motorcycles, I lean toward him and say – actually quite loudly because I have to be heard over the air compressor…are you ready for this?...NO, seriously – are you READY?

“So, how big is your unit?”

As soon as I said it, I wanted so badly to reel those words back in, but out into the stratosphere they went.

His head pops up, he smiles and says, “Oh, my storage unit? *chuckle, chuckle* It’s a 10’ x 15’.”

Y’all need to keep me off the streets, I swear.

Oooooops, just a slip of words but funny as hell.

I find I can get by with "slips" because of my age. You don't need to be kept off the street just always remember the innocent older lady face. Then give a little laugh. leave them wondering...
They will be thinking ,"Does she know what she said??"
