Embarresing Moments

Carmen at Mom to the Screaming Masses is sharing moments of idiocy/embarresment.

Here are some of mine. Not nearly all of them but a few that stand out.

When I was 15 I decided to walk down the road about 1/4 mile to flirt with the cute college guy who was mowing his yard shirtless. I walked by all cool waving my cute little I am too cool wave. Then I tripped fell in the ditch my ankle popped and cute guy had to carry me to his car and take me home so my mom could take me to ER and have them set my ankle. Not my finest flirting moment.

Of course the kids have given me many many moments of embarresment. One that stands out with Braden. Even though I really wasnt that embarresed I just love this story.

He was in Kindergarten, his teacher was on maternity leave. Braden was having a hard time with the substitute (she was my 8th grade teacher and retired that year if that gives you a hint on her age). Anyway Braden's aide had told me that the teacher was really hard on Braden basically mocking him on things because of medical issues he couldn't do. So I told her that I was unhappy that Braden didn't like her and I was having trouble getting him to come to school. I guess she thought she would prove me wrong, because she gets that sing song voice and calls Braden over to us and says "Braden you like me don't you?". Braden looks at her in the eye and says "No I don't not at all not even a little". That's telling her Braden!

I could go on and on I am sure, times that I have said something totally inappropriate.

One example of that is a friend was going through a divorce, and we were at McDonalds trying to cheer her up so I shared the gossip I had heard the day before about one of the moms of a little girl we knew having an affair. You guessed it her husband was the one that she was having the affair with. I was embarresed and felt awful.

Of course I also have tons of klutz moments, and on and on and on.

What is your embarresing moment?

oh my, Ive had quite a few!

Once when my son was 4 yo he told a guy that worked with my hubby that he 'stunk all the time and he needed to take a shower more often with good smelling soap'.

We were at a company picnic! I was soooo embarrassed.
