"A Cure for the Hiccups;" although I wasn't able to share the exact incident given it's provocative nature. And as I have had many embarrassing moments and am bound to have several more; tonight I'll share the most recent one; which occurred a couple of months ago.Tonight's topic was chosen from Mari's "Thoughts and Memories" jar. The question was "What are your most embarrassing moments?" Now being that I AM the Queen of MISHAPS; you'd have to imagine that I've had SEVERAL embarrassing moments; and you'd be right. I alluded to my MOST embarrassing moment when I wrote
Kelsie and I were standing on line at Subway, and a woman walked in, and she who looked very familiar to me. The woman got on line behind me and we both said "Hi;" which confirmed to me that I knew the woman. Kelsie then asked me who she was, and I quietly, said "She's the mom of a girl in Nicky's class." Kelsie then went on to ask "which girl?" I told Kelsie that she didn't know the girl (mostly because I couldn't think of her name; but also because I knew that Kelsie DIDN'T know the girl;) but being Kelsie; she persisted. Kelsie continued to ask me "Which girl? Which girl?" And finally I raised my voice a bit and said emphatically, "Kelsie, she is the mom of a girl in Nicky's class and YOU don't know the girl!!" And the mom awkwardly, replied "Um, I'm Carlos' mom from soccer." OMG! I was SO embarrassed. I am usually so good about remembering people; and clearly this was a case of mistaken identity.
In my defense, soccer had been over for months and Carlos had been on Lyndzi's team 2 seasons ago; but I'd just seen and spoken to the mom of the girl in Nicky's class, a few weeks prior on a field trip. I apologized profusely and she couldn't have been nicer about it; but of course, I was EXTREMELY embarrassed.
So a couple of weeks ago I happened to get a call from Carlos' much older brother, and he was asking about soccer registration. I told him when it was and he said that he'd see me there; but instead of the brother, it was Carlos' mom who came to sign him up. I greeted her and assured her that I knew exactly who she was this time; and she laughed good naturedly.
Now of course I know that nobody's perfect, and that we all make mistakes, and that stuff happens; it's just a lil uncomfortable when we do it right to someones face and yours turns bright red.
Till next time...
Queen of EVERYTHING
