Realms of Light
I could literally fill a book with my most embarassing moments!
For example, four years ago, I was in a rush to get myself presentable before I headed off to speak at a convention for professional women in business. I wanted to look my best and to present myself in a professional manner.
I was putting the finishing touches of make-up on my face. I had previously run out of rouge, so I had been using lipstick on my cheeks. I put three bold stokes of fuscia down each cheek ~ much like cat whiskers, but higher up on my face. I would then use the palm of my hand to blend the streaks of lipstick into a rosy blush. Well, as luck would have it, I received an important phone call before the 'blending'. Time elapsed in what seemed the blink of my mascara-ed eyes, and I had to dash out the door or I would have "been late for a very important date" like poor Alice in her curious land of wonder!
When I got on the elevator, I felt uncomfortable with the looks I was getting. Was there spinach in my teeth? ~ No. I had brushed my pearly whites! Oh well, I was just being paranoid, I thought to myself.
When I got to the convention, I continued to have people looking at me in the most curious fashion! What was going on?!?
When I finally made it to the stage and was about to speak, a friend of mine started to point frantically at my face! Then it dawned on me that I hadn't blended the lipstick streaks on my face! OMG!!! I was speaking to professional women in busincess and I looked like an Indian on the warpath!!! I was literally mortified!!!
Well, the angels must have been with me, for I was able to turn a negative into a positive! (Where were the angels before I dashed out the door?!? lol)
I got everyone laughing WITH me and it started the evening off on a lighter note!
Do any of you have an embarrassing moment that you would like to share with us? I for one, promise to laugh with you and not at you! I try not to take myself so seriously any more! ~ and besides, when we laugh, the world laughs with us!
Love & Laughter to you all!
