I thought I was someone else, someone good...
I tend to speak before I think.
That's why I usually don't talk in public. My mouth gets me in trouble.
Well, I also don't speak in public because of the crippling shyness...but I digress.
I made a terrible, awful faux pas at work today, which is going to involve me having to apologize to my boss.
(Hopefully I will not lose my job. I'm trying to stay positive.)
Dwayne has been warning me for years to watch myself at work, and now he's very manfully NOT saying I told you so.
He is, however, being his usual comedic self.
I asked him for advice on my big apology:
Dwayne: Blah blah blah "sorry" blah blah blah.
Dwayne: I know 'sorry' isn't in your vocabulary but I assure you it's a word - I've played it in Words With Friends. Let's practice, "I'm sorry," see, it doesn't hurt.
Dwayne: I'm serious you need to say it over and over to make it believable.
Me: Okay. I'll practice.
It's true. To those who really know me, I'm insufferable. I HAVE to be always right. I HAVE to have the last word. I'm completely obnoxious. I very rarely admit I'm wrong.
I'm a bad, bad person. I'm in for a long night of practicing my apology. Years of never saying 'sorry' have caught up to me.
Dwayne told me to practice on Chelsea, then he told Chelsea that Mommy has something to say to her.
I guess I will start with her.
Well, wait a minute, let me start right now.
I am sorry.
