Don’t Burn Any Bridges

Twas the night before Christmas and Grandad (my dad) had a bit too much vino.  Not way too much, but just enough that his words were getting a bit scrumbly jumbly.  Granny (my mom) was talking about something that made her angry at work.  Granny vowed that some day she was going to reach the end of her frayed and ragged rope and tell some people to shove it up the wazzoo and then give it a hard twist for good measure while flipping birds with both hands on the way out.  You get the picture; my mom was somewhat miffed.  Alarmed,  Grandad jumped into the tense quagmire and said, “No!  Don’t burn any bitches!”   He was completely unaware that he’d said the wrong word which made us all crack up even more.  Grandad of course meant to say “bridges” not “bitches.”

  1. Rarely does the mispoken word apply as well as it did here. I’m glad the Rev didn’t ‘resemble’ that outburst from his FIL.

  2. I must say that is a good one. Thanks for the laugh.

  3. Sounds like Grandad’s “auto-correct” took over and made a funny… Hilarious!!!

  4. I thought bitches melted with water.

  5. Funny! I think I’ve said a thing or two like that before.

  6. Oh, excellent!! I’m sure that will go down in the family annals as the best one ever!!

  7. Ah ha, now that is what you call returning in a blaze of glory:)

  8. Haha! A little slip of the tongue there, but seemed appropriate!

  9. A Freudian Slip that fit the bill, actually…lol!
    Lots of things are aggravating these days with the inefficiency of people–They Just Don’t Care The Way They Used To…!


  10. That fits neatly into the “Too true to be funny” basket.
    Happy new year to you and yours>

  11. I’m soooo glad you’re back and for the bridge to jdjaws. Wishing you and your family a very blessed 2011, JD!
