Hello! Today I am linking with Andrea for a little show and tell. Today we are talking about our most embarrassing moments. Oh boy, here we go…
Job interview…right after I graduated from college with my teaching degree I applied for a couple of jobs. I was pretty much offered a kindergarten teaching job on the spot at a local Catholic School. I had met my future students, taken the curriculum books home, met the parents and helped at a field day, and I had even placed my supply order for the next school year. The Principal had just told me that I would need to go meet with Father Tom in order to make the job official. I am not Catholic. I know a little about the Catholic faith, my dad grew up devote Catholic and my Grandparents were both Catholic, but we did not go to church growing up. Here is where this whole situation gets a little awkward and funny…I shake hands with Father Tom who is a very nice and generous man, I meet the school board, and the Principal is sitting at the table as well. Father Tom then asks for me to lead us all in my favorite Catholic prayer or blessing. Here is what I do know, I could have said “The Lord’s Prayer” or a handful of others that I know, but did I? NO! I simply said “Dear Jesus, bless this day. Let us all speak honestly and let the person most suited for this job receive it. In your name I pray, Amen.” I didn’t do the sign of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit while everyone else did. I had forgotten to do that and I knew it was over at that moment. Father Tom simply said “well Jenna, I think we have heard enough” and I did not end up getting the job. So awkward and so funny now to look back on.
Gymnast Maddi… When Maddi was 3 and 4 she did gymnastics. At the end of her season she had a recital. We were the first people at the doors for her recital and the doors were closed. When the teachers opened the doors to let us all in (there were probably 100 people there) Maddi looked up at me and said “I don’t feel good.” She then proceeded to projectile vomit all over. Everyone had to walk around us and I froze. I stayed to help clean it all up but anyone who entered the gymnastic recital walked right by.
Singer… Here is the thing, I LOVE to sing but I CANNOT sing. Like legit, cannot carry a tune to save my life. But I love it and tend to jam if I think no one can hear me. It was a nice sunny day I pulled up to a stop light, with my windows down and I was singing Lauren Hill “Doo-Wop That Thing You Do” at the top of my lungs and dancing. I just happened to look over at the car next to me to notice two men in business suits just staring at me with their mouths wide open. I didn’t know what else to do so I just kept on singing.
Downy is NOT detergent…Freshman year of college was a year of many firsts for me including doing my own laundry. Yep, I had the mom that would do all of my laundry for me and I never gave her enough credit. Well, I was too embarassed to tell anyone that I didn’t know how to do laundry so I would bring it all home and have my mom do it when I would come home to visit. Fast forward to October when I decided that I should learn how to do my own laundry so I bought a big thing of Downy and got straight to work. I was wondering what was going on with all of my laundry and clothes…did you know that Downy is NOT detergent?!?!
I hope your week is off to a great start friends!
