I think we've all learned by now that I am THE queen of embarrassing moments. Lord knows I've certainly had way more than my fair share of 'em. And if I hadn't figured out how to laugh at myself a long, long time ago, well, I'd sure as hell be living in a ditch somewhere with a bag over my head by now. Luckily, though, I just dust myself off and move on with the show, which is exactly what I did yesterday on our walk to school when I found myself sitting in a pile of mud in front of a crowd of parents.
So typically, the kids and I like to walk to school most mornings, in which case, we take Goatdog along with us. And believe it or not, he usually tends to behave for the most part, despite a bit of tugging and pulling here and there. It's a really great way to kill two birds with one stone -- get the kids off to school and get the dog some exercise -- bada boom, bada bang.
I had almost deposited the kids without a hitch yesterday morning, when Goatdog decided to charge at some poor, unsuspecting man walking along our path. And before I could even process just what exactly was going down, I found myself completely tangled up like a damn pretzel in the leash. And while I did manage to prevent the dog from pouncing on the man, I, unfortunately, did not succeed in remaining upright in the process. I ended up ass-side-down in a muddy pile of grass as a swarm of gawking parents made their way past this ridiculous scene.
I tried very hard to ignore all the muffled giggling and snorting of the passersby as I dusted the dirt off my ass and made my way back to my feet. Cause, really, what else could I do at that point but chuckle right along with them? So I continued on my merry way with a giant mud stain on my left cheek and my reigning title still in tact....
