I am the sort of person who likes my appearance to be perfect if I’m going out in public, unless it’s to the gym or a place like that. So of course, if I don’t have everything “just so,” it’s embarrassing.
My husband and I were out of state on business about twenty years ago. The next morning we were meeting a business associate for breakfast. My hair wasn’t behaving itself, so I sprayed water on my bangs and put a couple of those big clips on them while I got dressed.
I hate to hurry all the time, but my husband was rushing me as usual and we left the room in a hurry. Naturally, you know where this is going. I had forgotten to take those clips off my bangs and found them halfway through breakfast as I brushed my hair out of my face. I’m sure I must have turned several shades of red as I quickly snatched them out of my hair and put them in my purse, trying to be cool and calm about it.
Disgusted with my husband doesn’t even begin to describe the way I felt after we left the restaurant. I’m just glad the place wasn’t super busy because he never told me, and the guy we were having breakfast with never indicated anything either. However, I guess he probably wouldn’t. I was so embarrassed. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this incident, which my husband thought was no big deal. Yeah, right....
