Open mouth, insert foot...

My nephew's birthday party was this weekend. I had a great time, it was a fun party. Just before I left though, I managed to completely humiliate myself and make one of my sisters look really bad as well. Here is just an example of the wonderful communicator that I am.

Someone asked me how I ended up with all girls. I said, "I don't know, my sisters got all the boys except one who got one of each." HERE IS WHAT I SAID WITH BRILLIANCE "But she did two dads." Then I tried to recover with, "I mean, her first husband passed away." I just walked away hoping they knew what I meant. It was awful. I can't even tell my sister-although I know the sister that heard it probably already has!!

Those are some great words to leave with.
