In 2005, I wrote the following prophetic words:

Yesterday I purchased a set of ear plugs.

Like all good consumers I read the warning on the package.

Here is what it said:

"In case of misuse: If you, your child, or your pet has swallowed a plug, do not worry. It will pass through the body in a normal way."

'Nough said.


Fast forward to 2009, when I wake up chewing one of said ear plugs like a piece of chewing gum.

This is what I get for making fun of warnings.


Question for 2Day: What's your most embarrassing moment?

oh my...I try to stay away from embarrassing situations as much as possible. Then if something does happen I go through a couple days therapy to block it from my memory. lol One moment I can actually remember is when I was constipated during my honeymoon. eek! talk about awkward.

Too funny! I try to stay away from those awkward moments, too... but somehow they always find me.

Honestly, it's really not possible for me to give you one embarrassing moment as there are so many.

But many of mine fall under the same category. I tend to mangle the English language as I speak. It tends to make people snicker, snicker, snicker even if they end up saying something like, "you're so cute." How is the following cute I ask you?

If I was using the words bales of hay in a sentence, I would actually say...hales of bay. I do it ALLLL the time. Sad really. Considering I'm a writer and need to speak in front of groups of people for work purposes.

I do that too, Elaina! We're twins! It's OK though. It only makes my talks more funny 'cause I write humor... and people think I'm trying to make it sound like that. :)

Elaina M. Avalos said...

See you have an out since you do write humor. When I do it, yeah, it just makes me sound like a huge dork. :)

BJ Hamrick said...

Yeah... I guess when you're a humorist, "dork" becomes a life-calling... who knew you could make a living off making fun of yourself? :) PS - I'm sure you're not a dork :)

I know all about waiting--for the right guy, for high school to end, for my boobs to come in (two out of three ain't bad).
