We al have moments that we hope to stay private.

Most of them are laughable; some of them are dramatic or just downright inappropriate.

This morning, I went out wearing pajama bottoms that are better left hidden and a sweatshirt showing my loyalty to the New Orleans Saints.  My hair was disheveled….it always is – so never mind that!  And I was perfect picture of sloppy and goofy looking.  If that wasn’t enough, I was thinking about this while I was walking the puppy.  At the very moment that I started to giggle, I was fumbling with putting on my gloves when a branch jumped out and hit me right in the face.  I really didn’t see it coming and I couldn’t stop laughing either.  I kept thinking what if someone saw this picture.  Truthfully, I would make them laugh.

Making people laugh is always a good thing, right?  I think so!

And then earlier this week, I was walking the puppy when I fell on all fours.  At this point, you could say that perhaps I am a little too connected to the animal kingdom or maybe just the earth, but more accurately I wasn’t paying attention to where I was walking in the dark.  Well 30 minutes later, when I looked at my knees and hands, I saw some really beautiful shades of blue and purple.  Truth be told I was OK, but my ego – not so much.

Have you noticed a theme here? Maybe I should get rid of the puppy? Or perhaps I should stop walking outside in my neighborhood?  Or perhaps it is time for me to admit that I am a klutz?  Either way, I think I will stay just the way I am.

And then there are the times, I have said the completely wrong thing at the wrong time.  Or used a word that I thought I knew how to say, but didn’t. . .those are the times I really want to hide.  Unfortunately, there are many more of those stories. . .  OY!   But you can wait, I am sure one day I will share some of my communication blooper stories.  Stay tuned. . . .
