Important life update:
A couple of weeks ago I was minding my own business at church and stuffing my face with mini donuts when I had a sudden desire to get up and get some coffee.
So, I got the little styrofoam cup, filled it with coffee, and then proceeded to add a million of those little creamer things. As I added the last one, some unknown force caused me to backhand the hot liquid.
Coffee stained all of the sign up sheets on the table and rushed towards the donuts.
But of course I wouldn’t be writing this if there wasn’t a silver lining, right?
Because of this intensely awkward situation, two guys sweetly came to the rescue with paper towels and assured me that it was completely ok. Thank God for them.
Anyway, after everything was cleaned up (except the sign up sheets–those remain marked with signs of my clumsiness), I got to talk to someone and made a new friend. Yay for me!
So, bottom line, don’t be afraid of awkward encounters. Sometimes those lead to the sweetest moments. 🙂
