Reminder not to do dumb stuff

So… I am kind of a dork. People who know me, know this. But it sure is embarrassing to be caught being one by other people – who don’t know me…

I have been working long hours so far this week, so I thought since the sun was out, today I would do some yardwork that I was behind on… I’m out in the yard with my airpods in – mowing, weeding, sweeping, washing things. I was out there for hours and filled up the entire yard waste toter. I’m listening to music loudly and can’t hear anything, lost in it… I’m in the zone… then a song comes on that makes me want to dance – so there I am dancing in the front yard. Not gently, discretely swaying – but full-on awkward dork dancing… I turned around to find my police officer neighbor and his buddy leaning up against his truck just watching me with these big grins like “Isn’t she an idiot”. Fuck… how embarrassing… so I take out an airpod (which makes the music stop) and said “hey – Hi”. What could I say? It’s like getting caught standing on your bed singing into a hairbrush. I moved to the backyard where they couldn’t see me anymore. I told my youngest how I just made a fool of myself in front of the neighbor, and she said “Geeze mom… by the way your t-shirt is mostly see-through. Maybe next time you’re going to do yard work you should put out a tip jar… we have rent to pay.” Little smart ass… no empathy… I mostly don’t really care what people think (at least I tell myself that) but I am mortified. I’m going to wait until after dark to get the mail… forever.

Here’s today’s playlist if you have some yardwork to do too… Just watch out for Nelly… that belongs on another playlist.

A complex creation that chooses to be quite simple - LOL. I earnestly try to approach life with unconditional love and non-judgement... but I'm only human and perfectly imperfect :)
