Less-Than-Graceful Moments

Sometimes Gracefully Monday

Happy Monday! Darrin and I spent our weekend hoping from birthday party to birthday party. We were a bit busy, but there’s was some darn good food served and paid for, so I’d give this past weekend a two thumbs up emoticon. I’ll take a free steak any night.

Have you been watching the Olympics? Darrin and I usually have it on in the background while we pretend to do homework. Figure skating just astounds me. To spin that fast in the air and then land on such a thin skate without breaking your ankle or snapping your knee is nuts. And then there’s that whole ski-jumping business. Wowza. What if you violently sneezed while flying through the air? There’d be problems, am I right?

Here are a few of my less-than-graceful moments from the past week! Hopefully your week wasn’t filled with too many embarrassing moments!

  1. The weather has been so cold and dry here that the skin on my hands and knuckles become scaly and crack if I don’t apply lotion every hour. I, unfortunately, didn’t have any lotion in class the other night, so when a girl sitting next to me asked to borrow a sheet of paper, I handed her a sheet not knowing my right hand had cracked open and was bleeding around my knuckles…it was awkward.
  2. I bought a bag of potatoes last week just so I could use this to make dinner. Talk about a domestic wife fail. But a definite win for “As Seen On TV” products.
  3. Have you ever accidently brushed against an old man’s butt with your hand while trying to maneuver through an incredibly crowded restaurant lobby? No? You’re lucky.
  4. Eating chips and guacamole that was heavy on the garlic before analyzing a novel with the student sitting next to me was not my greatest idea. Even I was uncomfortable with the smell of my own breath. And I love me some garlic-y guacamole.
  5. That moment when I almost ran over a traffic worker directing traffic because I incorrectly interpreted his arm waving was not my most “graceful” driving moment. I guess I deserved some of those “choice words” he decided to shout at me…his “choice finger” might have been a bit excessive…my bad, buddy.

How was your weekend? Got any less-than-graceful moments of your own? Hashtag #lessthangracefulmondays on Instagram or Twitter! I’d love to hear about them! Having a good laugh on these Monday mornings definitely make the days a bit easier! πŸ˜‰

Have a great Monday!
