Only in Utah!

So I got some new glasses in December, in the picture you will notice that the sides have rhinestones spelling out "D & G" in fancy cursive. If you don't already know..."D & G" stands for Dolce & Gabbana, which is a high-end brand name. If you've never heard of it don't feel left out, apparently you are not alone. Well I got them about a week before we went to Hawaii for Christmas and we met up with Toms sister and her family that live in California. Upon noticing my new glasses and the "D & G" on the side, my brother in law, Brian commented on how he was "impressed" that these glasses were for purchase in Utah...he joked that he didn't realize that Utahns even knew what it was! Well a few weeks after we returned to Utah, we went to a baptism and a lady came up to me and said, "Monica! I LOVE you glasses..."D & C"...how spiritual of you!!" This comment made me want to laugh so hard because only in Utah would someone think you could get glasses with a scriptural reference on them, but I didn't want to offend her and she obviously wouldn't have known what Dolce & Gabbana was if I had corrected her. So I just nodded, smiled, and said "yeah, uh-huh!" Well since then a few ppl have simply asked me what my glasses say and when I tell them, some immediately know what I am talking about and others I have to go into more detail. But on Sunday I was sitting in Sunday School and the teacher was passing out scriptures for ppl to read and he looked at my glasses and asked, "Do your glasses stand for Doctrine & Covenants? Cause that is what we are studying today!!" So of course the whole room is kinda looking at me and my glasses and waiting for my response...I told him that they say "D & G" not "D & C" and that "D & G" stands for Dolce & Gabbana...those few that know what it is just nodded and smiled and the teacher and most of the rest of the room just looked at me like I was some weirdo that wears glasses with random letters on them! Just had to share my funny story!

That is just too funny! I kind of had the opposite happen to me once. My brother had given us CTR bracelets when he left on his mission years ago. I was working for a hand rehabilitation clinic at the time, and one of my coworkers asked me if it stood for Carpal Tunnel Release.

But I like what you said about your glasses: only in Utah.

Sad to admit, but I am one of those people that would have had no idea what D&G stood for...they're super cute though! Funny that people thought that it said "D&C" and they actually thought it was for Doctrine and Covenants...that is pretty funny. Good times.
