Purely for Your Amusement Series: Awkward Social Moments

Awkward moments...we've all had them. Some more than others, unfortunately [ahem.] But they are part of living on the earth with such a wide variety of other humans, and I have learned that if you just loosen up and laugh at yourself, life is so much more fun.

There's the times when you have those auto-pilot responses...

Or when someone is being a little overly polite...

Or when you get stuck in something you had no intention of buying. This has happened to me way too many times:

Since beginning to run regularly, I've become acutely aware that pedestrians are not high on some people's no-hit list. The safest thing is usually just to give a rapid, penetrating stare to make sure you're not going to get creamed and then...go. Fast.

I have a habit of doing this. It can be interesting turning the corner of a store aisle in the middle of a very important and highly amusing conversation with yourself and getting a disturbed glance from another customer:

And then we have the crowning moment of all awkward moments- the day you suddenly realize that you are a cat:

Have a marvelous day and don't forget to laugh at yourself.

Love, Celia
