"Fa La La"

    Out at the mall with Mrs. OTWO, she sees a shirt on the rack that was marked down from $25 to just $4.
    She holds it up and says, "Should I buy this as a workout shirt?"

    I tell her "No, because as soon as you figure out what it means, you won't wear it anymore. Save your $4."

    Her: "What?"

    Me: "It says in cursive, 'fa la la.' "
    I thought maybe she didn't read it clear, so I figured that was enough to say to a JW. But no.

    Her: "What does that mean?"

    Me: "It is commonly known that it is words in a song played at Christmas- Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la, la la la la. Someone will point that out to you and you will feel bad."

    Her: "Let me see if it means anything."
    She whips out the smart phone to declare, "It has absolutely no meaning."

    So she bought it.

    That is so "normal" of a person, but not normal of a JW.
    Any thoughts?

    My thoughts are that it would be hilarious to see her face if a JW says anything... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Whats great is that she will probably defend herself too... Wonder how she'd react...

    That's hilarious! Hope she bought it and wears it proudly!๐Ÿ˜€ Was it red or green, maybe that would have been a clue. If she Googled fa la la it would have told her right off it was part of the lyrics of a popular Christmas song. Maybe she can wear it when she cleans the KH!

    It's odd to me she wouldn't take what you told her as being true.

    But yeah, it would be funny if she wore a xmas shirt to clean the hall...get a pic!

    And you can drive to Detroit without going through Indiana . . .

    As a workout shirt it would make more sense if she covered the 'FA' with an 'Ohh'. Now that has a meaning!

    Pity the average dub doesn't whip out the smart phone for a quick fact check while reading WT literature or listening to a talk.
