Day 3730: Awkward moments

In an awkward moment last night, I asked this question on Twitter:

Just now, I had another awkward moment when I clicked on “1 Quote” to find the one tweet that had quoted mine and got this:

(Is it awkward that my punning mind looks at that bird and thinks, “Squackward!”?)

After I asked that question about awkward moments last night on Twitter, I had an awkward moment when I wished I had asked a different question, which was “How do you deal with awkward moments?” My answer to that question might be, “I recognize that we all have them, so what’s so bad about awkward moments anyway?”

Other awkward moments yesterday included getting a message on my laptop that said “your disk is almost full” and somebody farting (yes, I feel too awkward to reveal more details).

Do you see awkward moments in my blog post for today?

I’m having an awkward moment, right now, where that picture of Joan (with the newly installed shower seat, which will help me deal with awkward moments as I age) is reminding me of this:

Here’s what I find when I search for “awkward moments” on YouTube:

I’m grateful for all the moments I get to share with you, including the awkward moments.

  1. I really enjoyed reading your blog post about awkward moments. Your writing style is engaging and relatable. I have a logical question for you: Have you ever found that embracing awkward moments has led to personal growth or new opportunities? Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this topic.

    • I think it’s awkward when somebody (a person or a bot) (awkward!) comments on a blog post and awkwardly includes a link to a product (or something else potentially awkward). And to answer your question, anything can lead to personal growth or new opportunities.

  2. It’s not “Christina’s World”, but “Joan’s World”, and Wyeth may have had an awkward moment!

    Your photo of the nearly empty marina under the blue cloud-streaked sky is very striking.

  4. Many, many years ago my friend John told a girl there was a computer called a Wang. She asked, “What games do you play with your Wang?” He blurted out “I don’t have one” and was then horribly embarrassed. I feel awkward that I’m sharing someone else’s awkward moment and I hope John remembers some of my awkward moments.

  5. awkward moments are only temporary, but boy they can be really awkward! good thing about them is, at some point, we can usually look back and laugh at them.

  7. I don’t want to go back to recall my awkward moments, Ann. I’m sure they are stored somewhere up there.

  8. I try to move on very quickly when I have an awkward moment. If I can find humor in the incident, that certainly helps. Your photos of Joan in the shower are indeed humorous!
