Quietly as I could, I dressed in the dark, gently closing the door behind me as I left for an early morning yoga class. One I’d not been to before. I didn’t know the instructor or any of the yogis. And they didn’t know me. I arrived in my black yoga ensemble, paid my fee, and headed into the studio when I noticed three thinly sliced women staring in my direction. I smiled, quickly assessed they were in some sort of vegan trance, unable to smile back at me, and went on about my business. It wasn’t until the third downward dog that I realized what had so captivated the tofu trio. My pants were inside out AND backward.
If only I owned a full length mirror!
Later that same week, I was rushing out the door to get to an event for which I had volunteered. As usual, I pulled my designated shirt from the dryer on my way out the door and slipped it over my head in the garage before sliding into the driver’s seat. I arrived early and in my customary style began to greet fellow volunteers with smiles and hugs. After I’d spoken to about thirty people, I made my way to my assigned post where I saw the friendly face of my friend Jill. She always has a smile and a funny story. The look on her face became one of puzzlement, and then she said it. My shirt was on backward!
Try as I might to appropriately and properly dress myself, this kind of thing happens to me from time to time. More often than I should admit actually. It’s part of my charm…
In recognition of how well I seem to do things ass backward, today I have decided to feature five bloggers without asking them to spill their guts about secret crushes or secret identities. There’s no need for them to divulge their most embarrassing moments or execute nimble networking know how to be worthy of accolades.
For generating spit takes that rival Old Faithful, Darla @ She’s A Maineiac makes me laugh out loud. She writes the stuff of life and shares posts from other blogs worth visiting. For captures and captions of creatures great and small Lyle @ krahnpix.com and Lorri @ theeffstop.com each have mad skills. Photography at its finest and personality plus make their blogs two of my favorites. New favorites Lisa @ agrippinglife.wordpress.com and Meeka @ acflory.wordpress.com are as entertaining as they are informative.
There you have it.
