The Pride Goeth and Goeth and Goeth

I must tell you, at church the other day I actually looked rather cute.  I'd just gotten my hair cut and haven't messed it up yet and was wearing a snazzy new pair of pants.  They are CALVIN KLEIN (I know, I'm wearing a label, what a sellout) that I had gotten on clearance from Costco.
They go very nicely with my black Costco sweater.

 Yes, I do buy all my clothing at the same store that I buy my tires.  Is this a problem?

Anyway, I looked cute.  This happens about twice a year and I must confess I was a wee bit conscious of it.  I thought that I might have to relinquish the geek title after all.  No Geek ever looked this good.

You all know where this story is going don't you?

We were walking to our chairs and the senior pastor came up and started to chat with us.  We attend a largish church (for Canada) and had yet to speak with the man in our six months attending there.  We kept walking while talking and I turned a little bit to better speak to him.

And walked directly into a chair and then stumbled into my husband nearly bowling over the pastor.

Yep.  Still a geek.  Just a little cuter than usual.

You crack me up. I adore you. And remember, I once walked into a stop sign. Not as bad as walking into the pastor, but I hope it makes you feel a tad better.

I always do stuff like this... and then laugh at myself. I even laugh like an hour later when I randomly think about it and people look at me like I'm nuts... which I totally am :)

I can't believe that happened to you and not me. That is so something I would do. On those few days I have dared to think I looked good, I should have known better than to leave the house. Catastrophe always ensues.

I'm sure you were the CUTEST clumsy person there. :-)

Just remember that you make "Geek" look good! (I have on occasion tripped up the stairs, in front of people - embarrassing!)

Ha!! I have Calvin Klein cords and a black sweater from Costco too! But I usually don't think the prices there are quite cheap enough for me. So it's more a matter of convenience....

don't tell the senior pastor who you're related to... he'll never think that there's hope for you again-trust me!
