Embarrassing Moment Walking the Dogs

We All Have Bad Days

Have you ever heard the song by Van Morrison 'My mama told me, they'll be days like this.' His song is a refreshing reminder that all of us have days that don't seem to gel or work out quite the way we'd wish. This is my story of such a day where things didn't go exactly as planned. The best you can do with a experience like mine, is laugh it off and not take yourself too seriously. Luckily, I have a pretty good sense of humor.



Definition of Embarrassing

Wikipedia's Definition of Embarrassment

Embarrassment is an emotional state of intense discomfort with oneself, experienced when having a socially unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others. Usually some amount of loss of honor or dignity is involved, but how much and the type depends on the embarrassing situation. It is similar to shame, except that shame may be experienced for an act known only to oneself. Also, embarrassment usually carries the connotation of being caused by an act that is merely socially unacceptable, rather than morally wrong.

Walking the Dogs turns Embarrassing

It was a typical day as I walked my two dogs through the familiar neighborhood. Little did I know what embarrassing adventure lie ahead. My dogs started pulling me so hard, I thought I'd lose my arm sockets. I looked around and noticed what the commotion was. It was two women walking a large, yellow lab. "Oh no!" I thought to myself. My seven month old puppy isn't well trained and the older dog gets riled up easily. The soggy, wet soil from rain earlier, plus two determined dog's, brought me crashing and tumbling to the ground. Suffice it to say, it wasn't a smooth landing- you know the saying?, "the bigger they are, the harder they fall." As leashes tangled and wrapped around me, the dogs fought to get to the lab. I was hog tied and being drug about like a rag doll. To add to the humiliation, I was covered with mud from head to toe. Can you say Awkward and Embarrassing?

As the women rushed passed me, they shot me a look of compassion, mixed with, "something's not right with that woman."

I laid on the ground until I saw they were out of sight~ but never quite out of mind.

    "Hog tied and drug around like a rag doll", now that's funny. They can sure be pesky sometimes. My neighbors used to laugh when Bucky took me for a walk and played crack the whip with me. She could stop on a dime.

    Hi quester.ltd-thanks for reading my story. I fell and then to make it worse, the dogs were binding me with their leashes. I eventually composed myself but the ego was a little bruised.
