That Awkward Moment

    Ugh, this is so me. One of my more awkward moments was at a funeral of a friend’s grandparent. The friend thanked me for driving a ways to get there and I said ‘No problem, you had to drive even further’. Except it was his dead grandparent, so it didn’t really matter how far he drove. He just looked at me weird, and turned to talk to someone else.

    This is by far my favorite post. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels like the queen of awkward moments, and I hope someday to have a kiddo that I can tell to learn from my mistakes. My recent awkward moment… A couple weeks ago my uncle surprised the family by stopping by (he lives a few hours north). I was coming outside with sunscreen for my husband, and there was my uncle with some other family members. I greeted him and with excitement asked what he was doing there. He bluntly announced my aunt had filed for divorce. A normal person probably would have responded with, “I’m so sorry, what can I do for you?”. I instead reached my arm out with the tube of sun screen and offered him SPF 30. Nailed it.
