That Time When I Felt Like an Idiot

Ok, so funny story.

On my lunch break today, hubs and I went to Smoothie King to get a smoothie. I ordered, paid, and was about to leave when I noticed this woman sitting at a table staring at me wide-eyed.

I didn’t really think much of it because, really, what else is there to look at in Smoothie King but a rack full of protein bars and  beef jerky?

Anyway, as I walked past this lady, she got out of her chair and said, “excuse me” while walking behind me and trying to get my attention. But she was being so quiet about it. So, since she looked all wide-eyed and curious, I got this weird feeling that made me all sorts of nervous. For no reason whatsoever, I started thinking…

THIS is it! She reads my blog and I’M BEING RECOGNIZED!!!!

And then she whispered, “you have a band-aid sticking to your butt.”

True story.

    I love that you feel confident enough in yourself to share an embarassing story with the world. Yes, I said the “world!”

    Carry on, my friend. :D

      I’m pretty sure it was still on my heel from yesterday (new shoes blister), and I sit with one leg under my butt at work. It took me a good 10 minutes to figure that out too. :-)

    Hilarious! I just laughed right out loud in the middle of my students taking a quiz on “Othello.” One time I taught an entire morning before realizing my fly was down, and kind of open. I thought my kids were laughing at my wit, but apparently I’m not that high-brow =)

    LOL!! That’s awesome!

    I think I would prefer that to what I have been getting a lot of lately, “You look like someone I know.” Also, someone at the airport in NY last month said it and then said to her friend, “Doesn’t he look like my friend Jason?” Someone is cloning me!!!!

    “We’re gonna eat a dolphin!” (If you can name the movie without Googling, you will reach rockstar movie quote status with me.)
