Awkward moments

Ever have one of those moments where you share something personal with someone only to hear crickets chirping when you’re finished?
Today, I had one of those moments.
Thank goodness, I’m not the type of person that would be upset about it.
I’m not!
OK, maybe I am.
Just a little bit.
OK, maybe more than just a little bit.
OK, maybe a whole lot.
I guess what bugs me is that I always assume the best possible reaction, the Holy Grail, but always end up with the tin cup. No, maybe a fine pewter cup. Either way, it sucks when the reaction is less-than-stellar.

OK, maybe my expectations are too high, but I like to view life from a half-full, rosy colored glass. If people fail, as they often do, I wish it weren’t in instances when I’m anticipating a better reaction. It’s such a let-down. Oh, if I could only rule the universe…

Wait, that’s too much pressure. I only wanna rule on certain designated occasions.
Fickle, fickle human that I am–

About Mema

I've been at this blogging thing since 2005, but I don't consider myself a veteran AT ALL. My posts are mostly well-meaning, fun anecdotes with the occasional random thought and a dash of humor for good measure. So sit back, relax, and stay awhile. And if you decide to browse elsewhere, just remember...you're missing out on an opportunity to meet (arguably) THE GREATEST PERSON THAT EVER LIVED. Overstated? Well, why not stick around to find out? Your call, tough guy. Or, gal. Or, martian.
