Here I fell
He reminded me while I sat there where I had fallen that those were my Crocks and "not for the desert". I am not prejudice. Sometimes I don't think how things sound. At the hospital a nurse asked how comfortable they were and I said, "Great but not good for the desert". Hubby started talking fast because I had stuck my foot in my mouth and didn't even know it. The nurse was Mexican-American and Hubby was telling her how we had just vacationed in the Southwest and I went bare footed in the desert. When the nurse left she was smiling but Hubby said, You should have seen her face when you said that!
I think people sometimes are too sensitive.
