Awkward / Awesome Volume 41

Awkward: Trying to say 'bless you' with my mouth full. 
I ask you, does the polite cancel the rude?

Awkward: Breaking my stapler.
Awkward x 2: Borrowing my coworkers and breaking hers too.
Awesome: Our lab manager ordered new ones for both of us.
Awkward: I broke my new one...

Awkward: Getting a plastic cut (like a paper cut, but on plastic)
Awkward x 2: Getting nail polish remover in said plastic cut.

Awesome: Magnetic nail polish. 
I tried it on one nail in the store.

Awkward: Taking outfit photos.
Awkward x 2: Taking outfit photos in the gym bathroom (here and here).

Awesome: It hailed.  For 12 seconds.  This is what it looked like outside at the time.

Awkward: This mural (it looks like a sick noodle, but it was a mexican restaurant so I think it's a burrito)

Awkward: Sharing a table with two very popular strangers.  Nope, for the millionth time, that's not my phone that just buzzed.

Awkward: Putting mascara on only half my eye.

Awkward: Washing my hair in the gym bathroom sink.

Awkward AND Awesome: Our stats take-home portion of the final included 'fun' questions about us stats students poisoning our teacher's coffee because we were unhappy with our grades.
Awkward AND Awesome x 2: I offered our stats teacher a green (mint) cookie. He refused. I showed him one I had taken a bite out of and he took that one.

Awkward and Awesome: In 7.5 hours, I will be done with my stats final and, if I do well, done with stats. 
Awkward AND Awesome x 2: In 8 hours, I will be celebrating this at my stats professor's house.

Awkward AND Awesome: Next week, I fly to the east coast to meet Boyfriend-Fellow's family!
