The year my mom found the peas in the microwave oven the day after Thanksgiving was the year we decided that they evidently weren't that important to the Thanksgiving meal!

My DOH moment is occurring as I type. I'm here, at work, two hours, no phone calls, no one else here, and DOH I should be at the race with the rest of the group but NO, I'm the sucker they got to come in today. What was I thinking??? DOH, I could be drinking beer (well, once it's noon), walking around, and having a good time but I'm here, alone, in silence. I can't imagine why I have no motivation to work.

Mine is more stupid than doh, lol.
Putting in notice at job with the promise of staying until all people hired are trained and in return, not get kicked to the curb until I find a job. Stupid to believe that others are as honest!! I guess I know where my son gets it. Now, can't claim unemployment either!! Dh doesn't know either, DOH!!

I think we all have them. I went the better part of a year --- I mean something like 9 or 10 months --- telling people, believing, that I was a year older than I was. This was some time in my 30s. Finally my husband said something like, "You do know that you are 36, not 37, right?" I actually sat down and did the math. Duh. How did I get THAT one screwed up? I really am not stupid.

Lindatoo - why do you feel that different brands of baking soda or cornstarch aren't interchangeable? I buy different brands all the time & have found all baking sodas to be the same & all brands of cornstarch to be the same.

Now if you meant that baking soda & cornstarch aren't interchangeable - that I agree with - lol!!
