The weekend is here and I am starting mine off by having a pot luck supper with some of my closest friends!! Not only is this pot luck going to be filled with way too much yummy food but it also going to be in honor of my birthday! Yay!! I am actually getting my first cake for my birthday. That is what sucks about having your birthday land on Thanksgiving, you get a candle in a pie!
A neighbor and family friend, Shirley Young passed away last week. Being from a small community I don't think there was a person from Quyon who didn't know/love Shirley.
Yesterday afternoon was her wake. Jill, Jared (brother) and myself wanted to pay our respects to the family and headed to town.
The Young's/Draper's are a BIG family. We headed inside the funeral home a began giving our condolences to each person in the line.
I always find that I have to stop myself from saying, "How are you" while at a wake since it is a greeting I regularly use.
I was doing so well but when I got to the last person in line this is what happened:
While shaking the hand of Shirley's son.
Me: I'm very sorry for your loss.
Son: I appreciate that. She will be greatly missed.
Son: Thank you for coming
Me: No, thank you!
WHAT!?!?!?!?! Who says that?
I literally bolted out of there and instantly hit myself in the forehead.....stupid....stupid...stupid.
Why the heck would I need to thank him? Looking back now I can laugh and be laughed at. But still, why couldn't I be born a graceful and composed?
Hence, I am a super AWKWARD DORK and I'll never change!
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a great weekend!
