I love to laugh. Laughing lightens life up a bit. It brings a new perspective to intense situations. I don’t even mind laughing at myself. It serves to remind me to never take myself too seriously. Just like tea, laughter has proven health benefits!
Do you have a story that contains an embarrassing “slip” of the tongue or even a literal fashion faux pas, such as “your slip showing?” I have dozens of these stories. Yes, my blunders are funny fodder.
I would like to make “Pardon Me, but Your Slip is Showing” a regular Sunday feature. Pour yourself a cup of tea (I’m currently drinking iced-tea, because it is already very warm in Oklahoma!) I’ll tell my story first, OK? Be thinking of your story to tell. Let’s get laughing….
Around twenty years ago, I visited a new church. I went on a short trip with a group of people to a restaurant, in order to make friends and become better acquainted. As several changes had been made in my life, I really wanted to make a good impression.
Like many women, as soon as our van arrived at the restaurant, my first stop was the ladies’ room. In those days, loose, wide-legged palazzo pants were fashionable.
The bathroom floor was not clean. To keep my palazzo pants from hitting the floor while I was in the stall, I decided to tuck them into my knee-high hose.
After returning to the restaurant dining area, I noticed a few odd stares.
My palazzo pants were still tucked into my knee-high hose.
I quickly un-tucked them. What could I do but laugh at myself and rush to sit down?
So much for great first-impressions!
Your turn! (Can you top that?) ;^)
