We've all had them...those moments when we wish the ground would open up and swallow us because we are so embarrassed....Trust me, I have had so many I can't count. But that being said, I also have a good sense of humor and I am my own biggest mocker, so I keep busy shaking my head at myself.
Take the time when I was at my mother- in- law's house at a big family dinner...my then five year old daughter piped up out of the blue and said, "Grandma, guess what? My mom thinks you're bossy!" It was quiet for a few minutes, but luckily my mother in law didn't appear too angry. She said, "Well, she's right!" I still felt embarrassed, mostly because I knew I had said that a time or two to Hubby, and most likely had been overheard by little ears! (Lesson learned, though !) :)
Or take the time I went to a public restroom in a nice, swank department store...I left it, walked though the entire store, only to have a red faced customer tell me I had tucked the entire back end of my dress in my panty hose... (I bet THAT was a scary sight..) Oh well, you just untuck it and go on !
And a while back, I went to a big performance talent show to see my niece play piano...I dressed up in this lovely new suit I had just bought...my first time wearing it, and I felt swank and posh in it, too! I went in to sit down, and when I did- the whole skirt ripped up the entire back...I kid you not...and I have no idea why, unless it's because I had only paid 19.99 for it? Hmmm, sometimes you do get what you pay for.....How did I get out of there without frightening the crowd, you ask? I borrowed my niece's jacket and tied it around my waist, holding on to my skirt so it wouldn't fall off- needless to say, I did get some funny looks!
I guess I love funny things, and when I do have a blooper moment, it makes life all the more richer to me. Even if the joke's on me! I could write a book on those kinds of moments ,as I am sure we all could. My view is that life is often too serious enough without the more lighthearted moments. Enjoy them, and share them with others because laughter really is the best medicine!
