Overheard in our house....

Sunday afternoon, Shooter and I were hanging out eating grilled hotdogs and watching Giada's Weekend Adventures show on the Food Network - she was exploring Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Our hotdogs were fabulous...they were the big fat juicy Hebrew National dogs. YUM!

Well, back to my point...here's a snippet of the conversation we had....

To set this up...Giada is out on a horseback ride in the morning...beautiful panoramic shots of the scenery abound....on screen, Giada says, "Wow, look at this big sky! It's gorgeous out here!"

In a very sarcastic voice, I say "Well, gee, Giada...why do you think they call Wyoming "Big Sky Country"?" :roll eyes:

Shooter pauses mid-bite, gives me the "Jim Halpert face" from The Office (see entry for October 24 - the whole blog is a riot and you should read it!) and then says, "Honey, they call Montana "Big Sky Country."

Me: Really? Hmm...I guess you're right. Well, they should call Wyoming that too. It's all the same anyway.


My sincerest apologies to everyone from Wyoming and Montana...I know it's not all the same. You're two very distinct states. Please accept my apologies and admission of my geographic ignorance. hehe!

hee hee. At least you admitted your wrong doing!

There's a lot of blogs today with conversation recaps! Must be one of those days!

Funny thing, my DIL and I watched Giada's trip to Wyomming also. She and my son are going in a few weeks, and she wanted to get some tips on where to go and what to do.

Ok, Where Was I? said...

I thought it was Texas.

Beth from the Funny Farm said...

HA! Both states have big beautiful sky views though!

Julia said...

haha, that's funny! I love Giada.

Di said...

What was that similar thing I asked you regarding countries? Yeah...shared brain. You had my half this weekend lol.

for a different kind of girl said...

Ha! Oh, I shouldn't admit this, but I would have semi-argued with my husband that it was me who was correct about my mistake.

Sarah - I'm glad I'm not the only one. ;-)

Beth - True...beautiful country!

Julia - it's a laugh a minute at our house...right now I have a toilet sitting on my bedroom floor...

Di - yup, very similar...we're separated at birth after all. ;0)

Girlie - he caught me in a vulnerable moment - otherwise I probably would have argued for the heck of it.
