An email exchange.

Only because I am shameless, and sharing the joke always ranks higher to me than maintaining my pride, do I share this email.  I used Halloween shaped clip art to conveniently cover the information that is not important.

Welcome to the reason I don’t dress up for Halloween.  Dumb ladybug wings.

And it wasn’t just a spill.  It was like someone shot the bottle with a bullet.  It exploded.  Everywhere.  And I knew 10 of the 100+ people there.  Oh yes, it was humbling and horrible at the exact same moment.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had to send an apology email after a Halloween party….. I didn’t think so.

You’re welcome for that.

Go vote, friends.  And please leave your ladybug wings at home.  The world will be a safer place.

    Angels wings disguised by ladybug wings…how many people take the time to e-mail their “I’m sorry’s”…I voted, …but I am not sure it is the one God is going to place in the White House…there is a way bigger healing that needs to take place…and it may have to come by way of much more pain for all! I know deep, but just wanted to share!

    Girl, the older you’ll get, the less you’ll care about these little mishaps. I’ve walked into a glass door (it really hurts when you don’t see it coming), run into the edge of a regular door (it was a one in a million shot), fallen down stairs (TWICE), tripped on the sidewalk outside church and fell hard enough to tear my new pants (the traffic cop laughed when I felt he could have helped), tripped on the sidewalk outside my apartment and fell hard enough to tear my favorite jeans (and I had a date that night with my now-husband)…it just goes on and on. Just a couple of days ago I was putting groceries in the fridge and somehow caught one of the door bins on my jeans when I stood up. Salsa and glass everywhere. I’m tempting fate by saying this, but I’m almost dead to embarrassment.
