Guest Posts for 2013: #SoWrong

SoWrong

In 2013, I asked some of my blogging buddies to share their most embarrassing moments from which they learned…something.

I’m kicking things off on December 20, 2012 by sharing my own tale of horror and humiliation.

I can hear y’all now.

You’re all: Omigosh, she’s probably recycling something.

Like remember the time she didn’t back-up her computer?

Or remember the time she fell down the stairs?

Or remember the time she went dancing alone and got all dizzy?

Or remember the time she got into a confrontation in an elevator?

Or remember the time she wore her son’s pants all day?

Or the time she bought meat off a truck?

Yeah.

But this one is worse.

Here’s the deliciously tasty line-up of awesome-sauciness:

  1. Ha! I’m committed now! The thing about ritual humiliation, or hopelessness, is that its fairly easy to get the sympathy vote. When I wrote about what a useless DIY assistant I was in the post you linked to above, was it my skilled and efficient husband who reaped the commiserations? No, it was the Queen Bodger, me. There’s a lesson there somewhere, but probably not one we should be learning😉

  3. Well, at least I’m glad you didn’t just do a recycled post where you just link to all your favorite embarassing moment posts!! Oh, wait . . . (and it sounds like YOU could do the entire year yourself, my dear! Ouch).

    And, um . . . didn’t I sign up for May? I could have sworn that happened. Maybe I just dreamed it. How embarassing . . . 😉

  4. Oh, lady. I don’t know if I can do a 12,000 word post about embarrassing moments and just title it “All Life”. Sounds like a fun series. Great blogger line up!

  6. Well, Misty, that makes me feel better. I saw my name down for May, yet I could have sworn I’d been booked for February. I put it down to early onset Alzheimers on my part, when in fact we should be blaming our dear host. Yup, that’s you, Renée😉

  7. Grateful I’ll have an entire year of embarrassing moments to choose from before I get to report on one – fun for me! Thanks for including me in this great bunch!

  8. Yeah, it looks like you could cover the whole year yourself.

    I hope you know how much of a challenge this is going to be for me. I never do anything embarrassing. (a crappy memory is the only positive thing about having early-onset dementia)

    • Pego: Remember, my blog used to be called “Teachers & Twits.” I wasn’t kidding. I have every confidence that you will be able to pull something off. Like, remember the time you didn’t send me one of those cool felted pins that you made and I sent my uncle to your house and you hit him with your broom?😉
