At the second meeting with my birth family after I found them, we were discussing family history, aunts, uncles, etc. My parents told me a sad story about how one of my aunts (that I'd never met) died after getting hit by a car after crossing the road getting her mail. I couldn't help myself by blurting out, "Maybe she was trying to get to the "other side"!"

Luckily for me, we all have the same sense of humor and they were laughing so hard they had tears in their eyes!

Leaving the store this morning, I noted this Awkward Penguin behavior in myself:

Push exit door with right shoulder. It doesn’t budge. Push again. Look at door in consternation. Door is locked. Switch to other door and push with left shoulder, finally, exit.

P.S. Two decrepit old ladies, wraparound sunglasses, approaching storefront. Don't want to touch door with skin. Pretend not to see old ladies.

The fact that I managed to carry a 40-lb bag of dog food and two bags of canned food (a dozen cans) from the register inside the pet store to my car without dropping anything or face planting today was nothing short of a miracle.

that happens to me all the time

at restaurant - waitress "enjoy your meal" me - "you too"

or boarding a flight and they scan my ticket

attendant - "enjoy your flight" me - "you too"

it's when they veer from the expected "have a nice day" that I freeze up

Hmmmmmm maybe being awkward with oneself is the penultimate awkwardness? I too leave myself reminder voicemails a few times a week, sometimes while very sleepy, but often closing with the uplifting signature, "Good luck dude! You're awesome!"

One of my finer moments was then I ended a call with a coworker with "love you, bye." laugh

Last week, I sent an email to my husband asking him to stop at the store and pick up a few things on the way home.

At least I thought I sent it to my husband. In reality, I sent it to a coworker. Oops!
