Monday Morning Grievance: Five Embarrassments

Nobody likes being embarrassed.

It’s Monday and I haven’t had my coffee.

OK, maybe certain types of people in certain types of situations like being embarrassed.

I am not that kind of person, and this is not that kind of situation.

I suffered (at least) five embarrassing things this week:

Embarrassment 1: My Crock-Pot catching fire.

Embarrassment 2: Tripping on the sidewalk & face-planting on the cement in front of a junior high student, severely scraping my hands and knees.

Embarrassment 3: Knocking scabs from said injury loose the next day . . . in the bathroom, so that the blood started seeping through my pants and I had to call a secretary from my stall using a cell phone and have her send a male with a box of band-aids into the men’s room.

Embarrassment 4: Washing my pants in the men’s room using cold water and hand soap so that the blood wouldn’t stain, then walking around for the next hour with very damp pant legs.

Thankfully, there was a downpour around that time, so I actually didn’t look that out of place.

Embarrassment 5: As I typed this, an ant bit me in a very uncomfortable location, causing much jocularity in Krystal and painful dancing in me.

What’s annoying you today?

  1. Oh dear. Not s good Monday for you! I’m not too annoyed today, which is unusual. My husband is away for five days so I’m quite happy about that! And in UK, what you call pants, we call trousers. So when I read about you washing your pants in the washroom sink, I gasped with horror, as pants are underwear!

            1. Short women’s pants cut off below the knee. One can theoretically dig clams in them and not get wet. However. The ocean doesn’t know that.

              Who knew today would turn into an international fashion lesson? Loving it. 🙂


  2. (My mom wore “clamdiggers” in college which are now called capri….redneck would be “high water waders”)
    A sense of humor, a tough skin, and “must not embarrass easily” should be on the job description’s required qualities for a middle school/jr high teacher. (The PE teachers used to have a stash of jogging pants for wardrobe malfunctions at our place)
    What a Monday!
