I've got something up my sleeve...

I've been planning a fun little surprise for my blog and I can't keep it a secret anymore! I am going to write an entry cataloging my most embarrassing moments. I have A LOT of them. More than any one person should. The great thing about me is I don't mind making fun of myself so that everyone else can have a laugh.

Last September my driver's liscense expired and I never renewed it. I recently was told by a friend that if it has been over six months, you are required to retake both the written AND behind-the-wheel components of the driver's exam. So here I am, nearly TWENTY-NINE, once again taking the driver's test. I barely passed the first time. I thought it would be fun to post a picture and include it in my growing list of embarrassing moments. The thought occured to me, though, what if I don't pass? I'm taking it today. I'm not confident in my driving skills or my knowledge of traffic laws. Will they ask me to parallel park? Yikes, I hope not. The test is not open-book. So the outcome of today's test will determine how this embarrassing moment will rank- whether it will be near the top next to when I lost my bathing suit at the beach, or near the bottom next to one of my many "foot-in-mouth" stories. I'll get back to you on that.

I was having a crappy day, but reading that you are going to post a list of your most embarrasing moments has really, really, made things better. Thank you!

I hate parallel parking, I try to avoid it as much as possible - I make my husband drive every time we go to San Francisco!

do you remember when you walked into the boys bathroom at Disneyland? And you were in there forever until you finally came out, red-faced and laughing. Mary and I were laughing so hard that I think a little bit of pee came out!
I love you Katherine. I think the world of you and have so many fun memories from the old days. Girls Camp canoes, GFM, Afro wigs,Marinas Sadie Hawkins, dancing... lots!

Ha ha, GFM... I love it. So funny! Oh my gosh, yes I remember that time I went into the men's restroom at Disneyland! I was in there for so long before I finally realized that there were urinals in there! And you guys just watched me walk in and waited outside laughing. That was funny! Those were good times.

Katherine, was it me that told you about the 6 month thing? I think so since this happened to me too. I wasn't brave enough to tell very many people, so I admire your courage, and am happy to add my embarrassment to yours, here on your blog. :) I passed by the skin of my teeth too. They gave me two chances on the written test, which I needed. ;)
PS.. YOU HIT THE CONE??!!!!

Katherine said...

Yes, Melody, it was you. Your secret is out! :)
