Life of a Blogger | Embarrassing Things

June 5, 2014 Life of a Blogger 8


Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!

This week’s topic: Embarrassing Things

When I sat down to write this post I started thinking that I could have SWORN I already did a post about embarrassing things. Technically, no. I did a post about The CRAZIEST thing I have ever done. Which is basically the same idea in my world. Because me crazy is usually embarrassing.

But if we’re talking embarrassing things the number one thing on my list is clumsy. I need absolutely no help falling, tripping, etc. Just me and my own two feet. I’ve been known to be walking along and just fall over. I’ve been known to be in the middle of sitting down and just miss the seat completely. I’ve been known to trip up the stairs and in the process of trying to save myself from falling, fall down them instead. I’m a gravity challenged disaster. Or, as I like to say – “I’m not clumsy. I just do frequent gravity checks.”

My clumsy extends to running into things and knocking them over. I’m constantly bruised and my BF used to worry that people would think he beat me. He doesn’t worry about that anymore, because everyone who knows me, KNOWS that I’m so clumsy that I’m doing it to myself. I frequently ask – “Was that door there earlier?” “When’d that table move?” Because yeah – I’ve run into them.

I’m also someone who will get so engrossed that I lean WAAAAAAY back in a chair. That’s resulted in my flipping it in public a few times. And of course everyone runs over to see if I’m okay. That’s the worst part of falling, tripping, or flipping in your chair. Everyone’s so worried. I know that it’s polite and would probably be worrisome if people stopped caring, but GAH! It sucks! I often laugh and hobble away, saying “I’m fine,” trying to disguise any injury in my embarrassed anxiousness to just get away.

So I’ve told you about my disastrous clumsiness. Tell me some of your embarrassing things!

    I can remember faces, but I’m terrible with names, especially out of context. People come up to me and start talking and for years I was too embarrassed to say, “I’m sorry, but who are you?” Now that I’m well into my middle years, I’m a little more willing to make a fool of myself, so sometimes I’ll just say, “I’m sorry, but I’m really bad with names. Please tell me yours again?” But sometimes I’m still too embarrassed, and I’ll just pretend I know who it is and hope I figure it out from verbal cues!

      Oh goodness, I’m horrible with names! I try really hard to say someone’s name when I first meet them, they say that will make you remember it. It works with me maybe half the time, but most the time it’s in one ear and out the other 🙁 And I get so embarrassed asking again!

      LOL! Carmel I’m a total ditz too! I have never been able to figure out how those tap thingies work though, so I would have been in serious trouble. I think you should blame it on wedding brain! You’ve got too much wedding stuff up there for things like pin numbers 😉

    I have taken some of the most embarrassing spills. One I recall was in the middle of Uptown Charlotte. I was walking with my boss and co-worker, both over 6′ tall and for no apparent reason just fell splat on the sidewalk, face and hands forward. They just lifted me up and we kept walking (they wanted to make a big deal about it) and talking. Inside I was just dying. After about 5 minutes, they couldn’t hold it in any longer and cracked up.

      LMAO that spill sounds hilarious (since you’re not hurt!) I’ve had quite a few moments like that. My mom had the best one ever though about 15 years ago. We were crossing a road and she completely missed that there was a curb. She fell flat on her face — I swear her head bounced! It was horrible of course, because it had to hurt. But what made it funny was that she was so embarrassed, she got up and walked away and left her purse on the curb. I had to run and get it for her. LOL! I was so worried that she was hurt at the time, but once we knew she was okay, we all laughed so hard.
