...We've all had 'em.

Those toe-curling times when you wish that the earth would crack and swallow you up.

You tell me yours then, I'll tell ya mine!...maybe.

I recently told someone how nice her hair looked. Just as I was uttering the words, I realised that she had a wig on. I felt a complete plonker.

Right...Heres my latest embarassing moment;

Last weekend we went to a wedding in Harpenden.

We had booked in at one of those Premier Lodge 'thingy's'..

Some friends had booked a room there too, and had asked to be in a room nearby to us.

They arrived much later than us, so we didn't hear from them until they rang my mobile the following morning.

"What number room are you in?" I asked, like an excited kid.

"Number 23" came the reply.

"Oh your'e right next door to us then," I said, "We're in number 22"

At this point and for reasons I still can't even explain to myself, I started knocking on the dividing wall.

"Can you hear that?" I'm shouting (Still on the phone)..

"No, Can't hear it!" came the reply...so stupidly I start knocking louder.

"You must be able to hear that"...I say down the phone.

"No" came the reply.

At this stage I thought I'd go out into the corridor and bang on their door.

AS I emerged into the corridor, I looked at the door of the room OPPOSITE...and it bore the number 23....

I had been banging on the wall of Room 24 !

God knows who was in there, but I hope they wanted to wake at 8am..cos my racket MUST have woken them up.

I was so scared that they would complain at reception, as this chain of hotels guarantees a good night sleep!...

Anyway it seems I got away with it...THIS time.

I do embarassing stuff all the time, I could put them into categories.... like, DUMB THINGS I'VE SAID, and I AM A CLUTZ, and DIG A DEEPER HOLE WHY DON'T YOU.

A little while ago I was driving into the city with a teenager and I was pulled over TWICE by the police for speeding. The really embarassing part is that the second time, I didn't even NOTICE that the officer was behind me with the flashing lights because I was too busy talking over the music. You should have heard the officer lecture me and tell me that I was a bad example for this young passenger, blah blah blah. The speech was more painful than the ticket.

I also got a speeding ticket once near my home and as I was pulled over, my husband drove by and waved.

I fell in an enormous puddle when I was walking along the waterfront in Toledo, only a few minutes after meeting someone who I'd known online. I was soaked. How's that for a charming first impression.

Our priest dropped by once, just as I was restarting Richard's computer. Unfortunately I had the settings on the computer to have a vulgar and blasphemous sound clip from a movie, and the volume was up rather high. Oops.

This is just a start. I thought of a bunch more but you get the idea.

It would have been even funnier if the policeman had been Linda's husband!

I say, I say, I say...

Just harking back to my latest embarassing moment.

I guess this could've been the soundtrack!

I can't believe they didn't complain! Maybe they were too scared

Carole's story has really given me the giggles.

And is it sad that I like the 'Knock Three Times' song?
