A couple things...

First off, I'd like to announce that I have a new most embarrassing moment.
I don't know why I keep having awkward things happen to me while wearing skirts.
Perhaps it's a sign I should stick to pants.
Last night I was in the subway station on my way home from work and passed by this man as I was going down the stairs and he was going up.
Somehow, my lace skirt got snarled up into a zipper on the bag he was carrying as I brushed by him resulting in my skirt being lifted up to about the crotch area.
The worst part is that it was caught pretty badly so it took approx 6.3 seconds to untangle it.
Now, 6.3 seconds may not seem to be a very long time, but it felt like an eternity while standing there with my skirt all up and 300 people passing me. Staring.
It was super awk.
I guess this accurately defines some pros and cons of living in a big city...
Con: Many people are around to witness your most embarrassing moment.
Pro: You will most likely never see any of them again.
Con: After a humiliating event, it is normal to look for a familiar face, someone to help laugh it off. The odds of finding someone you know at that moment in NYC are slimmer than somewhere not as highly populated.
Pro: There are plenty of other weird things going on in this city so most people won't think your awkwardness is that weird at all.

Another thing...
Have you noticed that with every passing month people always say, "I can't believe it's already Jan/Feb/March/April etc!" or "Oh my gosh I feel like this month just started and it's already over!"
I've noticed this and have wondered if there will ever be a time when a new month starts and everyone says, "Yeah. It feels like it should be this month now."
Well, today is October 1st and I can say for myself at least that I am fully ready for this month to start.
It doesn't feel like it should still be summer and September did not fly by.
Now it's time start thinking about what I will be for Halloween this year...


  1. Oh my gosh that's so funny and so sad at the same time!! Glad you can laugh about it now :)

  2. Sara Jayne. You are killing me. These are things that I dream about and then wake up in a cold sweat. Please stop proving to me that these things are possible!

  3. aw, that would be terrible! but don't worry. everyone has stories like that. i'll have to tell you about my MOST embarrassing moment. you will feel better about your life in general.
    SOOOO ready for october to start up!
