I'm So Dumb

Okay, so I do some dumb stuff every once in a while. I admit it. But today was pretty goofy.

A while ago, my Mamaw gave me a thermometer that I keep at work in my desk, because I'm somewhat of a hypochondriac, and it's just better for me to take my temperature and know that I don't have one, than to think I do, and convince myself that I'm sick. It's just better - take my word.

For WHATEVER dumb reason, I decided to be an 8 yr. old child this morning and stick the old, glass, mercury filled thermometer in my scalding hot tea... ya know - just to see.
You probably can't tell in the picture, but it shattered the thermometer.
(Please note that no mercury was released with the stupidity of this act.)


So now at least I know that it's a good thing to add some cold water to the hot tea since it's temperature was obviously above 106 degrees.

On the list of dumb things I've done, this is about middle-range. The dumbest to date was when I was younger, I was coughing and decided to put a penny on my tongue - just to see what would happen.

I had to go to the ER since it got STUCK in my stinkin' windpipe.

See, now the thermometer thing doesn't sound so dumb anymore, huh?


  1. LOL! That sounds like something I would do too! I say, "I can be such a 12 year old" all the time!

  2. This made me laugh out loud! :) Don' worry though, I have so dumb stories that would make you feel MUCH better!


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
