I have a few. Like the time I asked an acquaintance if she was pregnant. She replied with, “No. I have just gained a bit of weight lately!” BIG lesson learned there.
And then there was the time I was walking out of the Providence Civic Center after an event. I was with my niece and a friend. It was in January. Snow and ice was everywhere. I face planted into a snow/ice bank with hundreds of people behind us as witness. I wanted to disappear! It did not help that my niece and friend busted out laughing, drawing attention to the situation. My face got all scratched up from the ice.. it happened so fast I did not even have time to put my hands up and out.
Looking back, I can certainly laugh now, but at the time it was rather humiliating!
Until next time …
