AWK-WARD...

I have noticed that my level of awkwardness has dramatically increased in the last month or so...yes, dramatically. Just a few of the numerous examples include the following:

Cutting off Tim Davis--at church--and then smiling at him and waving hi. I didn’t mean to cut him off, but I turned and didn’t signal and it was just plain bad driving. And then I smiled and waved like I hadn't just almost caused an accident. Yep. Awkward. Sorry, Tim. I'm usually a way better driver than that.

Making Matt McGill think I am obsessed with him. Apparently he and his new assistant (a good friend of mine) came by my desk one day to see if I could go to lunch last-minute, and I wasn’t there and missed out. That has fueled my strange insistense on getting lunch with them at least twice now. (I normally do not beg to have lunch with people I hardly know. Honest.) Awkward.

Accussing a stranger of being demanding. One of my best friend’s friends is in town, and I had a super awkward interaction with him today. He was saying how, since it's his birthday, he wanted his friends to take the day off work and go surfing with him. A legit request, right? Jokingly, I said that he was a demanding friend. Who says that to a stranger? (I made sure that after I insulted him, I did wish him a happy birthday.) Awkward.

Being rude and awkward to Riley at Chili's. I saw that his car was in the parking lot at Chili’s as I walked in. So when I saw him, I said his car was really dirty. Awkward. A “hello” would have sufficed, right? To right this wrong, I waited until he was leaving the restaurant, and then ran up to him to apologize for saying his car was dirty. He looked at me like I was crazy. Awkward again.

I promise I am not usually this awkward...am I?!

I concur with Amber, you are always awkward. But that's why we love you. Say it with me "Awkwardness is good."

Those were your examples? How about all that other really rude and awkward to extreme stuff!!! :) Atleast you are aware of the fact you are being awkward. That means there is hope!
