What is the one of the most embarrassing things you have ever done?
I’m sure….whatever it is….I can top it.
By a mile.
Almost. Every. Single. Day.
I could be my own reality show.
I was running late because I started watching this whole thing on CBS This Morning about Bette Midler and how she was playing this famous Hollywood agent on Broadway and the agent was fabulous and so 1970’s with these amazing glasses and she knew everyone and Bette wrote a whole play about the agent and how all the stars would come running when she lifted her little finger and I kept waiting and waiting for CBS This Morning to tell me what happened to the agent and where she is today.
Except they never did.
And all that waiting was for nothing.
And so of course, I arrived to church late.
With really cute lipstick on.
As soon as I walked through the door my husband saw me from across the room…..
…..and came running towards me.
At a full sprint.
It was amazing and overwhelming at the same time.
Just like a Hallmark Movie.
It was like he couldn’t wait to get to me.
Like he had been separated from me for weeks or months….instead of just an hour.
I think I even heard the music from Chariots of Fire in the background.
He was getting closer and closer…..almost in slow motion…..arms outstretched.
I smiled and waved and waited.
Because that’s what the girl does in the romantic movies.
And when he finally reached me…..he scooped me into his arms.
Just like in the movies.
And if it stopped there…..it would have been perfect.
Except it didn’t.
Because right after he hugged me and wrapped his arms around me…..
….he reached around and grabbed the stray piece of toilet paper hanging off the back of my dress.
Thank you….thank you…..me and my embarrassing self will be here all week. 🙂
