When You Just Have to Shake It Off

My face turned bright red, not once, but twice last week. And not because I was busting my butt in the gym. No instead, this was the red the comes straight from embarrassment.

On Monday, school started back up and apparently I forgot to put my professor filter back on after winter break. One of my student's medical device buzzed, and in an effort to make her feel at ease, I started telling them the story of when I was going through security at the airport and my electric toothbrush started buzzing. I should have left it there, but I had to go one step further and well, before you know it, my face was turning bright red as I realized I inadvertently was comparing a buzzing electronic toothbrush to another device that vibrates. Foot in mouth. I backpedaled as fast as I could but the damage was done. Let's get back on topic, huh? Oh boy.

And then, on Thursday, I was moving furniture around on in the space I manage so I turned on the tunes to keep me company. Well, as the beginning strains of Uptown Funk started to float, not quietly I might add, through the space, I realized my boss was having a private meeting in the library...where the music was playing. You guys. I uptown funk'd my boss in a meeting. He grinned when he told me but man, whoops. Note to self: make sure the other channels are off before blasting Bruno.

So yeah. That all happened last week. Foot in mouth. Burning cheeks. Embarrassed. But what can you do but shake it off and move on! Here's to a new week!
