I manage to embarrass myself with ease, frequently.
This one time, I was at a major shopping complex.... and I was checking my phone.... I walked the wrong way down a travelator.
Do you know what happens to you when your brain thinks that you are descending and your knees jerk you back in the ascending position?
I nearly peed. I jumped backward and stood there in shocked silence... just long enough to soak in everyone that was laughing and pointing at me. Arse holes.
Instead of dusting myself off and continuing on my merry way, head held high... which in hindsight is probably the only acceptable reaction to this situation.... I ran.... down the correct travelator.... straight into Woollies. Then I cursed myself for not running straight back to the car.
Then there was this other time...I had recently given birth.. ( and yes... five months before was still recently),
Mr emmasbrain called to tell me that his ( Rather negative ) friend from work was calling around to see the new baby. I asked if he could possibly do it another day... The house was a pig sty and I had been up all night... I really wasn't in the mood for his friends whinging bullshit.
Mr emmasbrain then informed me that he was in the car and I was on blue tooth.... his whinging bullshit friend was in the car with him.
He didn't come.
Speaking of Mr emma's brain... He was quite the success on Saturday night.
He enjoyed himself immensely in the company of my blogging peeps and Karaoke.
He is now threatening to get a twitter account under the Claus of they like me better.... Alas... It could be true... how could you not?
Never before however... have I ever embarrassed myself so willingly.. with a very unneccesary security escort... and with the whole thing ending up on You tube within 24hours.

I regret nothing... Thank you Digital Parents...
