Today is not one of my better days, let me just start with that.
Like any other morning I got up and got dressed (sounds normal so far right?). Things were as usual until I was in the middle of a call for work.
As I sat on the call I noticed something moving near my foot out of the corner if my eye. I looked down to see a gigantic (and I mean HUGE) centipede crawling around. Immediately I screamed as if I was being kidnapped or something. At that point I remembered I was on a call for work. My first thought was 'thank goodness I was on mute!' My second thought was 'great! Now I have to present my teams' information' (which is on my computer in the area where I encountered the centipede, the area in which I can't bare to be in).
At that moment they call me to present our information...I grab the laptop and like a madwoman rip the cord out of the wall. I'm out of breath because I'm so stressed from the encounter with the bug. Standing, with my laptop in my hands, I give our status knowing that I sound as if I just ran a marathon.
I decide to go sit down at the kitchen table to calm myself down, then see this post it note that I wrote out earlier today: In case you can't read my chicken scratch it says "I put my bra on inside out today and didn't notice for a couple if hours."
I'm not sure what's worse; the fact that I wrote myself a note like this (I wrote it to remind myself that I did it because I wanted to remember to tell Binderclips, and lets face it - I'm VERY forgetful lately) or the fact that I actually did it?
OR that I forgot to fix it and, therefore, am still wearing my bra inside out? (Oh come on! It's a sports bra type thing in my defense.)
Any who, I thought you all needed to know about all of this (as embarrassing as it is). Don't judge - you know you're not perfect either and surely you've put something on inside out at some point?
I'm good at 2 things: (1) Breaking things on accident and (2) Embarrassing myself (usually in public). I once told an entire Aerobic's class (that I was teaching) that by the end of the class they should "look like me" meaning 'sweaty' - they, however, did not take it that way. I've learned that instead of getting embarrassed it's important to be able to laugh at yourself and the hilarious mistakes that you make. If you don't learn from them, who will?
