I wrote!!! I know most of you are saying "Duh, wasn't that what your blog was about?!" but all you regular blog readers know that I haven't exactly had the best week of writing, ran out of time, stressed, or making excuses, those are all valid reasons for why I didn't write (well they are valid in my book" however I am happy to say that walking away from my laptop for the evening and using the old school way of a notebook worked! I sat with no TV on, only the music I enjoy (currently 4 songs, yes I'm working on expanding!) and a pen and a notebook, and suddenly the words came. I wrote several different things, a piece of the collector, Emily which is another piece I am currently working on and then my latest little trial and error. I guess you could say that at the moment I'm just having a little fun! Anyway here is a piece that I have written (no it's not from the collector that's for later!)
The Single Gal
I sit mortified at the local coffee shop, I'm sure your wondering why, and I will explain in a moment. I ordered the usual, which is a cinnamon muffin and an ice cold Dr. Pepper - don't judge me coffee shops are great places to think - I go to pull a pen out of my purse and instead pull a tampon out. My face immediately turns beat read -trust me I know, I could feel it- and I quickly check to see if anyone has spotted my little mishap. Two High School students, bratty little teenage cheerleaders start chuckling, I've been caught, and by the last two people on the planet I wanted. Luckily they didn't stay long but they talked about me on their way out carrying their cute little red and pink laptops, disgusted by their apparent need for everything fabulous and the fact that they spotted my tampon I stuff my face with my muffin, though it eases the hurt a little I am still quite embarrassed at what I'd done. Happily enough there were only two other women in the coffee shop, both too consumed with themselves to notice anything else in the coffee shop. Whew, very close call but I know I'll recover with an evening of Ben & Jerry. Luckily no handsome men witnessed that public display of humiliation, not that it would have mattered , the ratty hair and miss-matched sweat pants and t-shirt would have made me want to crawl in a corner and die. I don't make a habit of wearing ridiculous clothing out of the house but the cinnamon muffin wouldn't stop calling my name, I rationalized that since it was across the parking lot I would be in and out and no one would notice. Suppose the tampon will now make me think twice.
So it's nothing special, just something a little silly I thought up... hope you all enjoy!!! Have any of you ever done anything super embarrassing that you only wished you could have crawled up into a ball and died?!
