Thank goodness it's Friday - I'm so ready for the weekend. It's been an interesting week, but given that Mother's Day is this weekend I'm not exactly feeling like the best mother in the world. Baby is toddling around today with a huge shiner - he fell, face-first, into the caboose of his ride-on train yesterday, and injured himself quite badly. He's okay today, outside of the shiner, thank goodness, but when I went out to Walgreens just now for a few odds and ends, I felt like everyone was staring at me (and Baby's face) and thinking what an awful mother I must be. Lovely. Oh well.
So, since it's Friday, that means it's time for another Virtual Girls' Night Out with Ann. She's picked an awesome song - Des'ree's "You Gotta Be" from the 90's. Do you remember that song? Go visit her to see the music video to jog your memory.
This week, in honor of Ann's new quest for personal fitness (and fear of the gym), she asks:
Have you ever had one of those visions of walking into a room and everyone is staring at you and you realize you tucked your skirt into your underwear? OK now, have you ever actually DONE something like that? Or anything along those lines?
I've definitely had visions of full-on personal embarrassment. Most were work-related, and involved either meetings with higher-ups that scared the crap out of me, or the first few times that I taught software classes at work and had to stand up in front of a group of people and seem confident and informed. The best part was when I pitched that the company needed to buy a new, $20K plus custom-built board room table, and I had to convince the COO and CEO of that fact. Yikes. As for actual personal embarrassment scenarios, I honestly can't think of any. Which probably means there's a really good story in my head somewhere, it's just buried under my millions of pieces of trivial knowledge, like song lyrics to cheesy 80's one-hit-wonders.
What about you? Any good stories of total embarrassment? You know you have one...share please! :) Oh - and make sure to join in on the blog-hopping VGNO fun over at Ann's!
P.S. - Don't forget about my comments contest - the wonderful visitor who comments the most on my blog this month will be featured in an interview with yours truly here on Type A Mommy at the beginning of June.
