Yes, Miscuit. Especially since it always lands on "Ask Again" when I'm standing up. blush

My buckle collection isn't a Quirk, it's a form of expression. smile

Kind of like Howard on TBBT. I liked the episode where Howard had Sheldon polish all his buckles. laugh

Was walking and twittering yesterday and while I was watching my steps, I wasn't watching anything above that. Walked face-first right into a low-hanging tree branch.

OK, this one is about how I saved a guy from embarrassment at church. Younger single guy comes strolling in on the side isle at church to seat himself, about half way to the front. But he's got a long white sock hanging from his belt area that somehow was not seen as he put on his pants. Being a guy who had to save another guy, I went up and asked him to lean forward, and then pulled it out and handed it to him. He turned beet red, but said thanks. I don't think anybody saw it.

I once attended an early morning meeting. Halfway through, I realized something felt odd inside the left sleeve of my blouse. I slipped two fingers inside the cuff and up and encountered a dryer sheet stuck halfway between wrist and elbow. When everyone looked away, I yanked it out and crumpled it up inside my fist to hide it - and kept my hand that way for the remainder of the meeting until I could toss it in a trash can. I don't think anyone saw it, but I'm not sure. Embarrassing!

Just went to take a sip of water from a tall glass (water bottle, really) that only had a little bit left. Tilted too severely and I got a free afternoon face wash at my desk.

I am completely and totally an awkward penguin. I could fill this thread for days. CYM, you and I are kindred spirits here.

Just now came back in the office from embarrassing myself by enthusiastically waiving and speaking to a female friend in the bank's lobby only to find, upon peering over my reading glasses, that it was a woman I didn't know.

I was at an event with a large number of bankers last week when I saw a guy across the room that I used to work with. We had been good friends, and I hadn't seen him in a while, so I walked towards him rapidly, with outstretched hand and a big smile, until I got within six feet and realized it wasn't him. I wasn't sure he saw that I was headed towards him, so I just kept walking by.

I'm so bad at remembering people. At the last conference I attended a very nice gentleman came over and addressed me by name and knew where I worked and was asking me how things were going, etc. I had no idea how I knew him. I just nodded and smiled and asked as many general questions as I could hoping he wouldn't be able to tell. eek
