That Moment When……

bitmoji meThat moment when….

  • you realize that you’ve worn your bedroom slippers to work
  • you look in the mirror and your mother looks back at you
  • all the students look at you blankly
  • you think you’ve spoken to yourself and realize you said it out loud
  • you try to be funny but make an ass out of yourself
  • you walk into a room full of people and can’t remember your husband’s name

That moment when you realize that what you have accomplished in life does not match your childhood dreams.

Yes. Β Those moments.

    Ah yes, we’ve all been there. Well, I never wore my slippers to work, but I did once drive my son to school in them, forgetting to put my shoes on instead.

  6. Oh, well, you can always just say, you know that man I married and vowed to love forever…. I just call him sweetheart. Yeah, that works.

  7. Ha ha – you could turn this into a monthly feature. Sadly, I’ve experienced a few of these. I see my mother often these days. Thank you for the smile πŸ™‚

      Good idea about the monthly feature! These are not all new, though. They were the moments that immediately sprung to mind when I thought of this. And I’ve learned from some of them. I check and make sure I don’t have my slippers on now lol. Thank you for your interest in this blog!

      Haha….confession, these are not new. Well, some of them are. The bedroom slippers incident was a long time ago but left an indelible impression. Obviously, I was not driving my stick shift car at the time. And some are more frequent than others. But maybe it’s because I have no filter when thinking or speaking out loud. Oops


  9. I have many of those moments. But, I don’t let them define me. I just regroup.

    Never left with slippers, but I have twice left with two similar but defiantly not matching shoes. . . . Very embarrassing.

    Wait til you see your grandmother looking back at you (at least I think that’s who it is!)

    I’ve left the house with slippers several times but always noticed halfway along the road and gone home to change. I have left the house in a rush barefoot though…not my finest moment.
