I went to a grocery store yesterday, and got into the checkout line. DH left me there alone and went next door to the liquor store to pick up some beer. So I put my groceries on the converoyor belt and asked the cashier how he was doing. He was dark skinned and I think Mexican, he had an accent when he told me that he is doing fantastic. I then asked if he was ready for spring, and like an idiot I comment that I was tired of looking at brown (no snow and all of the grass is dead, I want to see green!). Without missing a beat, the cashier said 'Like me?" Suddenly realizing that I just told a person that has a darker complexion that I was tired of looking at brown, I was absolutely horrified because that was NOT what I meant! I am sure that I sounded like an idiot as I tried to dig myself out of that one... I feel sooo bad!
