my latest most embarrassing moment of my life

I don't think I'd share this if Sue hadn't felt 
the urge to host a carnival...

But laughing at yourself is a good thing,
and laughing at others is even better, right??

Okay, so here it is.

When there is a boogie in my nose
and I am alone, 
I don't always bother with the kleenex.
A lot of the time I'll just use my finger to take care of it.
I'm pretty sure this is normal.
I mean, I've told this story to at least seven people,
and they all admit to this too.
I bet you've done it. 
'Common. Admit it.

So a few Sundays ago,
in my new ward where I don't have so many friends,
I was in Sunday School minding my own business.
Scriptures open in my lap, my mind wandering a bit...

Then Hubby leans in and whispers:
"Don't pick your nose in public!"
And I'm like: Huh?
I didn't just pick my nose.
Then he whispers:
"Just wipe it under the seat. Its okay. I've done it before."
Then I'm like: What?
I didn't pick my nose.
Did I pick nose? No. I didn't. 
I for sure didn't.

And I was convinced that I didn't.
I was pretty sure Hubby was just messing with my head.
Then I moved my hand under my scriptures
and there, under my finger I felt it.
A boogie.
I picked a boogie IN CHURCH.
In front of people!
I was horrified.
I mean, seriously, wouldn't you be??

Not only had I done it,
I had absolutely no recollection of doing it!

I didn't hear one more word through church.
All I could think of was my public disgrace.
And how in the heck did I do that without realizing it?
I'm pretty sure that now 
I won't have friends at church
'cause who wants to be friends with
a nose picker??
Or a public nose picker at least.

krissa reann said...

oh my goodness! how funny...yeah i think its an automatic thing when we aren't really thinking!
Thanks for sharing...and I am sure you will still have friends...just makes you more human :)

Amy said...

ok, I am NOT touching any of the bottom side of chairs at your church! lol, that is hilarious.

(whats worse...picking your nose in public---or farting loud and stinky in public? I think you should do a poll to find out...)

Carey said...

Not only did you pick a boogie in church, you BLOGGED about picking a boogie in church. You go girl! Anyone who says they've never picked is lying. Thanks for the laugh!

gramee said...

no that really qualifies you for funny friday!!

really and i am sure all your new church
" friends " are stalking you to get to know you..
so now they all know if they saw it or not!!

Kristina P. said...

Wow, I don't think I've ever gotten to the point where I didn't realize I was doing it.

BTW, there was a poll on the POstSecret website, asking how many people pipck their nose, and it was 97%!! Everyone does it.

kemra said...

That's awesome!

Laurie said...

Hahaha.... Oh, you make me laugh!! Everybody picks their nose! Those 3% on that poll that said they didn't, are lying!!

Kaylynn said...

Cute or gross, I'm not sure which.

Maple said...

Hilarity at it's best!! Soooo nasty, but part of life. What would life be without outrageously embarrassing moments?

wonder woman said...

I admit to picking and flicking.

Maybe I should share my most embarrassing moment for VFF.

susette said...

What a funny and gross post. Impressed that you would share this story.

Jessica G. said...

I kinda feel bad telling my kids not to pick their noses when I know I'm gonna be doing that just teaches them to be more stealthy anyway.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Oh me. Oh my. Oh dear! (Love your new blog look, btw!)

Erin said...

That is too funny!

Melissa said...

I am laughing so hard that I've got tears in my eyes! That has got to be up there for most embarrassing moments! I've had many myself:) Thanks for sharing!

Melissa said...

Wow! You are a brave woman blogging about that one! So embarrassing!

jennifer said...

And THAT is what blogging is all about. Sharing those moments you wouldn't share with your family friends... and yet posting them on the internet. Ha! Me too!

I mean sharing those moments... not the boogie thing. I haven't gotten that brave yet!

Jessica said...

I love... that you didn't notice you did it , and the husband pointed it out!!!

Jess said...

That is too much... I think I just peed my pants AND spit up on my moniter... tfs such a true to life moment....

And if they dont want to be your friends after that... then their loss... you can put boogies under their seats to get back at them.. rolfmbo!!!

What about the people who think that just because their sitting in their car they have some magnetic force field and pick away thinking you can't see. Unfortunately see that all the time. :)
Everyone picks their nose. :)

Melinda said...

Hilarious! Loved your story, and I don't think you should be embarassed, anyone who thinks its gross is lying to themselves--they're probably the worst ones at doing it! hehe
