Thursday Thirteen - embarrasing

Thirteen Embarrassing Things about Jenn
  1. I once fell UP the concrete steps from my basement apartment, hit the bridge of my nose, and ended up with two black eyes.
  2. I met my now husband three days later and still had the black eyes.
  3. One afternoon I couldn’t get my car started. So I had my friend try and jump me, but it wouldn’t work. Finally I had my Dad come over to help me. He took one look at it and said “well honey, if you put it in drive, I think it would be fine.”
  4. 2 weeks later, with the same car I couldn’t get the window to roll up in the back. It was spring time and it was raining a lot. I had the window all covered with duct tape and plastic so I wouldn’t get wet. Again my Dad came to look at it and said “well honey, if you push the window lock button, I think it would be fine.”
  5. The next day my dad recounted these stories at a family gathering and announced to the whole group that maybe I needed a copy of ‘Subaru’s for Dummies’ – thanks Dad.
  6. I can’t fall asleep unless both my ears are covered. If there exposed the vampires might get them. (This is a childhood fear, instilled by my dear old Dad.)
  7. My mom and I were making fudge, and had a candy thermometer in it, to make sure it was done. It was boiling at a very high temp. When I was done stirring it, I took the spoon out of the pan, and licked it. I turned to my mom with wide eyes and said “that’s really, really, hot!” I couldn’t taste anything for weeks, due to all my taste buds being burnt off.
  8. I had never watched an episode of the Simpsons until after I got married.
  9. I threw up on my first date, because I was so nervous. I don’t even remember who my first date was with.
  10. I used to wear glitter on my eyelids like it was the coolest thing ever. It wasn’t the coolest thing ever!
  11. In junior high I didn’t brush my hair for three months. It got so tangled and ratty that eventually my aunt had to cut it all off. I looked like a boy and it took forever for my hair to grow back out.
  12. The first time I got pulled over, I cried so hard I could barely breathe. The dumb thing was that the cop didn’t stop me to give me a ticket or because I was speeding. He stopped me to ask if I knew my tail light was out, which I wasn’t aware of. He felt so bad, he followed me home to make sure I made it okay.
  13. When I was in 2nd grade I used to chase this boy named Coleman. After I caught him I would pull on his ears until they were bright red. I didn’t see that boy again until high school and I could barely look at him, I was so embarrassed.

Awww, sad moments. At least your hub didn't mind that you have a black eye when he met you. You are brave to share. I have both ears covered, but for a different reason-my hub snores. Thanks for visiting my TT!

That was funny. I used to flick this one kid's big ears all the way home on the Dial a Ride bus. I always got a seat behind him and did that.
