I Made a Big Mistake

This is too funny not to share. First, a little background. A little more than a week ago I was chatting via facebook with an old mission friend, Wade Bean. A few days later I got an invitation to view "Bean's blog." I was happy to accept the invitation. I visited Bean's blog, and noticed that it was obviously new. There were two posts, but I only read the most recent one, about their garden. The author wrote about the various vegetables growing in the garden: watermelon, cantaloupes, tomatoes, and, most notably, beans. The author wrote that there were "little bean plants" growing and that they would have "little beans anyday now!" Anyone who knows me knows I strive to make funny little comments on peoples' blogs whenever I see a good opportunity. So I left the following comment on the blog: "Wait a minute, I know what's going on here. 'Little bean plants??' 'We're going to have little beans here any day?' These are metaphors for saying you're PREGNANT!!! Congrats, Elder Bean!!!"



I was just so proud of myself for another witty showing on someone's blog. Then I noticed there was a comment from someone named Marian. I clicked on the name and it was my own mother-in-law! Well, the LDS Church often makes the world even smaller than it seems, so I figured that Marian knew Elder Bean's wife so I left yet another comment: "Hey, I noticed my mother-in-law posted a comment. Is your wife a sibling of my wife, elder Bean? I guess it's possible I could've missed you guys at family dinners." Another funny comment! I was on a roll!



I went back to the blog later in the day and decided to look at the other post I hadn't read yet. It was about a recent trip to Lagoon. And there were 5 comments, from Holly Casos, Danielle Casos, Kayla Casos, Capri Casos, and Sienna Casos. Now I was just totally confused. How on earth did Elder Bean know my entire family??? Then I got an epiphany. This wasn't Elder Bean's family blog, it was Kristina Casos's blog! My 10 year old niece, and I had left a comment saying she was pregers!!!! Embarrassed and mortified, I deleted the comments, hopefully before anyone saw what I had left. Ironically, this is why many blogs are kept private, to keep weirdos from posting things. Sorry Kristina.

I cannot stop laughing. That is HILARIOUS!!! The only thing that would have made it better would have been if I noticed it before you had time to delete it, and could have ribbed you about it for years to come. . . oh wait, I still can!

HA!

She may have gotten an e-mail with the comment though if she's subscribed to that... She'll forgive you though.
