I hate it when this happens
Anyway, I head down this aisle and I hear someone coming behind me talking. I keep walking. Then I hear "Kim, is that you?" So I turn around and this woman is talking away "Oh I thought it was you, how are you, blah blah blah......"
Oh Crap - I have absolutely no idea who this is. She is calling me by name and yapping away and I am at a total loss. Could she have mistaken me for another Kim?? So I am standing there with a phony smile on my face, plus a combination of confusion, embarrassment, and just plain old HUH?? My little brain is spinning ---- THINK YOU MORON......who the heck is this??
After what felt like an eternity but was probably only a minute she caught on to the look on my face. She says "Its Helen". OMG its Helen! We went to the same university (25 years ago) and she married a friend of mine. His parents still live here and she and Steve used to visit us occasionally, but not for several years. Last time I saw her she had long hair and now it was short short. Thank God because that was the excuse I used for not recognizing her!
Has this ever happened to you?? It is so embarrassing. So after all that I was so kerfuffled I bought the wrong size rug PLUS I couldn't remember any of the other things I needed. I came home with the wrong rug and toilet paper - thats all. Duh!
But I did get a tiny bit of hooking done. If I don't get going I will still be finishing this Angel next Christmas! Remember, I wasn't happy with the border colors? So the first colors are on the right and the new colors (more mottled) are on the left.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
