Okay, I’ve tried to think about the things that I could post that you might find interesting.. and honestly, I know most of you are really here to read about the kids, Steven and Maria. I guess what I have come up with is that I can try and interest you by bringing you along side some of my foolish and stupid mistakes. I will call these segments… “Foot in Mouth: True Stories”
These will true stories about me… that are incredibly awkward or stupid.
A few months ago, I was late for work, and I was eating the fruit out of my lunch as I did 90 down the highway. The fruit Sarah packs me is breakfast, and the meat and veggies are lunch. I got into the elevator and pressed 9 and reached down to take another bite out of my apple. I noticed that the sticker was still on the side, but because my hands were full (one with apple, other with laptop) I made a note of it and told myself to take it off when I get into the office. I walk down the hall, talk to a co-worker, put my stuff down on the desk, and get confronted with a peer about work put on hold from yesterday. While he told me about what needed to get done that day, I started to munch on the apple between sentences again. At the end of the conversation, the co-worker says to me, “Have you ever accidentally ate the sticker off of an apple?”
I was taken a back a little bit, and having been confronted about a work error, and then asked about a mindless act such as taking a bite out of an apple… I replied, “Not that I know of, why?”
He simply replied, “Just wondering.” and left the room to go back to his desk.
I was a little confused and looked down at the apple… checked every side.
