Embarrassing Truths

20 Aug

I spend a great deal of time here writing deep, meaningful posts.  Lest you think I have it together all the time and spend my waking hours philosophizing, let me share some embarrassing little nuggets of truth:

  1. While I may write eloquently, I frequently misuse words when I speak.  Thankfully I married a man who likes to correct my grammar and diction.  It’s a win all-around.
  2. I will scream if a tiny spider crawls in my direction.  Big spider?  No worries.  Little spider?  Who knows where it could hide or crawl in when I’m not looking.  And I will run with arms flailing from a mosquito.  Really.  Like Kermit-the-Frog flail.
  3. I was a die-hard band geek in high school and college.  Die.  Hard.
  4. I like to imagine I have a sophisticated sense of humor.  But honestly?  This had me giggling in the middle of the grocery store like Anderson Cooper on CNN. Yes.  I stopped and took a picture.  Because apparently I’m really just twelve years old and love a good penis joke.

Please tell me you laughed too.

    hehehe… who wouldn’t laugh 🙂 (though i must admit, i wouldn’t have taken a picture) and i think if that’s the worst you can do, you’re probably all right 🙂

    LOVE it! It’s nice to see that other people are human too. 🙂 And I was totally a band geek too.

    I completely laughed at your pic! And yes, I remember the #3 days, but you were a kick-a%# flute player because of it! (I always admired your passion) I haven’t touched an instrument since that senior year, but music will always be such a huge part of my life. I’m so glad we get to pass that on to our kids in some way! HUGS!

    So I’m behind on my reading, so I’m finally getting to this. And yes, I laughed. I’m also the dork that walks by the can of Spotted Dick in the British section at the store and giggles. Have gotten better about spiders though – that is until last night, when I went to slip on a pair of shoes to go cut some herbs from the garden, and felt something move in my shoe. I freaked and kicked off my shoe (sent it flying into my kitchen cupboard) and there was a BIG. HAIRY. SPIDER. I mean like half-dollar sized big. IN MY SHOE. I think that set me back in my progress towards overcoming spider fears.
