OPEN MOUTH, INSERT FOOT

Have you ever done or said something that even years later  can cause your cheeks to burn with embarrassment?  I had a couple of friends come by for a visit yesterday and something that was said triggered a memory that I shared with them and we all had a good laugh  about it but as I was relating the story I could still feel the shame.

The Story

I had gone into Nathan's grade 2 class to volunteer for the morning.  It was in early October and as I walked into the room, his teacher was writing Halloween words on large lined paper resting on an easel.


Later in the morning during recess, I began to make small talk with the teacher.

Me:  "That's really cute, how you made the kids spelling words all scary looking."

Teacher: " I have Parkinson's Disease."

Awkward!
