It's a good thing I can laugh at myself...because everyone else sure was!

I sure do know how to embarrass myself...especially up here in the Northwoods where so much of everyday life is foreign to me as a city girl. I will never cease to be amazed at how much people are really into the hunting/fishing/outdoorsman style of things. Well the kids and I went garage saleing today and that's when I really made everyone laugh...We were looking at a table of salt and pepper shakers. I thought it might be fun to let the kids pick out their own set since they were only a quarter or so each set. I was looking for one that Hannah would really like when I spotted the perfect set and said outloud, "Oh look, Hannah, here are some lipstick want those don't you?" And then I heard a chuckle from the older people at the sale and realized they were supposed to be bullets, not lipstick! Only a city girl would look at bullets and think lipstick!
In my defense, they were about 2 inches tall, one was green, one was red, and there was a gold cap on the bottom of each that looked like the part you would twist on the lipstick tube. Needless to say, I hurried the kids out to the car and decided to keep any future comments to myself!
