Awkward: Littlest-little accidentally bumped the cake I had just finished decorating.
Awesome: Fortunately, the damage was minute and I was able to fix it.
Awkward: I decided to take a picture before it got any more potential damage and in the moving it to a better photographing surface, I DROPPED IT.
Awesome: It spun like a dog bowl (like this) for what seemed like forever but never flipped over. The end result was a bunch of cool looking cracks in the frosting.
See? Kinda cool....
Awesome: Receiving a present in the mail from Boyfriend Fellow's mom.
Awkward: It was the same present I was planning on getting her for her birthday!!!
Hah! I went ahead and got it for her anyways.
Awesome: A wonderful Easter with Madre, Stepdad, the Littles and Boyfriend-Fellow.
Awkward: Driving 45 minutes towards home when I realized I had left my laptop.
Awesome: Everyone was super nice about it.
Awkward: It still took me an embarrassingly long time to stop welling up with tears.
Awesome: Eating easter eggs for breakfast all week.
Awesome: I found my FAVORITE (and discontinued) gum.
Awkward: I bought it ALL (the cashier must've thought I was a crazy)
Awesome: My office-mate keeps up a constant barrage of insults.
Awkward: She does it even when I have students during my office hours.
Me: The teacher is going to probably emphasize the 2nd and 3rd sections on the test.
Officemate (quietly): HA! You're so full of it....
Student: Wait, what?
Awesome: One of the students in the class I'm TA-ing gave me a card to pass along to the teacher.
Awkward: When I handed it to him, he thought it was from me and said, "Oh thanks! I've got one for you, too."
Awesome: Complimenting a random stranger in the hallway
Awkward: Having them ignore my compliment
Awkward x 2: Having them show up at my lab 10 minutes later for an interview.
