The One with 80 Miles Per Hour


Monday, November 12, 2012

Do you ever have brain farts/blonde moments/do stupid things you had no intention of doing, etc? I swear creating children in the womb steals some all of your brain cells. I've forgotten more things in the past two years than in my entire life before Fox was born combined. I go to the store to buy Wheat Thins and somehow I end up with a box of Onion Wheat Thins or something. I search for 20 minutes for my grocery list only to have Chris ask me to check my pocket and "whoomp there it is!". I enter a room and forget what I saw doing there multiple times a day. I can't find my glasses because they're still on my head. And on and on. Typical old person stuff. So, once in awhile it's nice to see someone else besides myself struggle with something simple. Case in point - the wildly popular and H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S. "80mph" video. Essentially, a newlywed couple is driving from Logan, UT to Boise, ID and the husband poses the math question to his beautiful wife: "If you are traveling 80mph, how long does it take you to go 80 miles?" If you've got four and a half minutes to spare, I can pretty much guarantee you'll have a laugh. Sorry it's at your expense Chelsea!
So classic.

  4. Marlene - no, I don't know her... I've seen some other YouTube videos about it and they were even on TV discussing it - it's legit and she was super mad he posted it to YouTube, but they worked through it :)

  5. the story of my pregnant life right now. i'll admit that i've always been a bit blonde/airheadish and ADD but seriously this pregnancy has just made it downright embarrassing for me to be around other people. i could go on but i won't. i'll just give you my sincere condolences instead.

  8. yes!!! Edward has stolen my brain cells... And almost 3 years later, I'm still waiting for them to come back! Talk about stupid stuff... yesterday I went to empty the water plug for our front load washer and never plugged it... I put in a load of laundry and walked upstairs. Came downstiars 15 minutes later walking in water... so much water. My husband and Edward were watching the game so I was quietly trying to lay towels down without them noticing when all of a sudden Edward walks over and says, "oh no!!!" It's wet... and My husband laughed his butt off at me because I was trying to be sneaky... it was such a mess.
