A few nights ago, we were invited to dinner at some friends' house. We've been there many times. On this night. the host's parents were visiting, so we all planned to celebrate Christmas together. I made a tray of cookies, arranged neatly in rows and covered in plastic wrap and gave myself a proper blow-out before arriving right on time.
Then, holding the tray of cookies and walking with what can only be described as gusto (feeling pretty swank about my hair), I walked straight into a clear glass screen door.
The door shook and made a loud banging sound. I was sort of repelled from the door and took a step back. Everyone (outside and inside) came running. Luckily, the door didn't shatter.
The host said, "Night vision anyone?"
We all laughed.
Luckily, at 42, I am not quite so mortified by these events as I was in, say, my 20s. I laughed, felt a little flush on my cheeks and then barreled into the kitchen with said cookies and started unloading bottles of wine from my bag.
This all reminded me of a post I saw a while back on BuzzFeed about embarrassing moments. Some of these are classic. I read them this morning to my husband, and we laughed so hard we cried and couldn't drink our coffee.
The one about the blind man is totally something I'd do.
Hope everyone is having a happy Saturday. We're doing last-minute stocking stuffers, gifts for dad and general house tidying.
Is anyone else also doing a mental 2018 goals list? I'll be on that Christmas Day, if not sooner.
