ok, i HAVE to share with ya'll what i consider to be a very funny story from last night! I am still laughing about it...
disclaimer: i am not from Oklahoma, but i am currently living here. So it's never unusual to hear words or phrases that i am unfamiliar with......
Last night Daniel and I went to a couples dinner group of our church that meets every week. I was chatting with one lady who i had just met. I asked her about her children and the convo went a little something like this...
She was telling me the names and ages of her children, then she said they had a Garden Chip.
i'm sorry a what?!!?
Me: you have a Garden Chip?
Her: Yes, she lives with us but we didn't adopt her, a Garden Chip
Me: I'm sorry, i'm not familiar with that term. What is it exactly?
Her: A Garden Chip...umm...you know, the parents sign over their rights
(her to another lady...yes, let's please include more people in on this awkward convo)
Her: how would you describe a Garden Chip?
Other Girl replies the same way
me: huh, wow I've just never heard about this Garden Chip before.
(this goes on for a few minutes, because i am bound and determined to learn this new term of "Garden Chip" and get to the bottom of what it means)
Her: Yeah, i don't really know how else to explain a Garden Chip...
me: (the light has finally gone on) OHHHHH!!!! you're saying GUARDIANSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Her: yes, a Garden Chip.
I thought i was going to die from embarassment, but it was SO funny (to me at least!) how i couldn't understand what she was saying and never even came close to connecting the dots to a guardianship.
I LOVE moments like these...slightly embarassing, 100% awkward, and beyond funny.
hope everyone enjoys that little treat for the day!!
wish me luck on the long run tomorrow!
