It doesn’t take long for me to come up with examples to prove this:
James and I brought Madison and a friend to a public playground. The two of them go running through the equipment and then suddenly stop. Blank, embarrassed stares tells the watching Momma that something has blocked their path. I step up just in time to see two teenagers making out. The guy looks up at my kid and says, “Go away.” Momma Bear steps in, “Excuse me, are you serious? You are at a playground, a playground. What are you doing? Get down from there. Move out of the way and let the kids play…now!” He apologizes, climbs down, and then I strike up a conversation with the poor girl that is giving away her kisses (and probably lots more) to an immature teenager that probably doesn’t even drive yet.
James, Madison, Nana, and I are about to set sail on a fairy boat. I realize I am not as prepared as I would like to be. Before departure, I hit up the gift shop looking for something that I can’t find. I spot the only two workers, a male and a female chatting in the corner. I walk up to the woman, hoping he will step aside and let me talk to her. He doesn’t. “Can I just?” I try to motion that I would like a little privacy. He continues to prove that he is going to be in this conversation. His eyes are big. His head is tilted to the side. And he is offended that I want to leave him out. So I don’t. I turn to face him and ask him politely as I look straight into his eyes, “Do you sell tampons here?” Immediately he backs away and let’s the woman assist me.
Oh. The list goes on and on. And if I was reading this to you, you would hear my southern accent explain that that list goes “own and own.” I have lost the line! I do not get embarrassed any more! I am shocked and horrified to think of the things I might say and do! So, this post is a WARNING, if you know me, or I meet you in a coffee shop one day, I am that person. It is very likely that I might embarrass you.
