I've always believed that it's important to be able to laugh at yourself. Now, that probably came about a little from self preservation because from early childhood, I've given myself plenty of opportunities to be embarrassed . I was, and still am, one of the clumsiest and scatterbrained humans that ever graced this earth. Yes, some people would say, 'crazy'.
But, with the heralded advance of time, I seem to have reached new highs (or lows) in those achievements. Just the other day I did something that both embarrassed me and amused me at the same time. I remember thinking, "Thank God no one else knows I did that!"
Oh hell, I might as well share my funny story with the world. Everybody needs a laugh huh?
Last Thursday, I finally received a replacement phone from Verizon because of issues I am having with my original phone. I drove into town where the reception would be better to facilitate changing the phones over. After getting the new phone up and running, I went into Pizza Hut for lunch and continued to work on setting up the new phone. At one point, my husband called and we chatted for a while as I sat in the restaurant. While listening to him, I was idly playing with the old phone and getting it back in the box to be returned to Verizon. Suddenly, I realized that I couldn't find the new phone anywhere! I continued to listen to him but I was beginning to panic. What in the hell had I done with the NEW phone? I slid out of the booth and looked under the table, fished frantically in my purse and dug down in the back of the booth seat. I even began eyeing other customers, thinking they might have stolen the phone from the table. All the while I was not wanting to let my husband know I had already lost the new phone.
(Anyone figured this out yet? Cause I sure hadn't). I got so flustered that I ended my conversation with my husband rather abruptly so I could concentrate on finding that damn phone. Yep.....nothing gets by me. That's when I found it.
I WAS TALKING ON THE NEW PHONE!
Holy cow, I think they call that senility. I prefer to think of it as 'blonde to the roots'. You can call it what you want. I was just proud to find that phone.
