Gee Whiz! There's nothing like giving your son's girlfriend a great second impression of yourself. Thankfully, I have a good sense of humor. :)
So ...what happened you ask?
This past Sunday, as I walked out of the bedroom to go into the bathroom, I was thinking about the next day's barbecue and pondering whether I should shop or clean first. I was in my nightgown, not wearing any makeup and my hair wasn't even brushed yet. No one was home when I had gotten my first cup of coffee and I didn't know that anyone had come in since then.
But as I was about to turn into the bathroom I happened to casually look up ...which is when I saw her standing there and looking at me. It didn't really register that it was her but just that someone was standing there when I didn't expect it ...which scared me.
So in a lightening fast, startled response, I simultaneously jumped and screamed ...loudly. I scared her so much that she jumped and screamed too. I still laugh about it every time I think about it. It was embarrassing but I am sharing this little story because humor trumps embarrassment. :)
Fortunately, son told me she was laughing about it even after they left. :)
