If you’re feeling glum, check out the #ionce thread on Twitter for terrific comic relief as people confess their grand oopsies. It brought back so many memories of my own gaffes.
I share them with you, in hopes that you’ll share yours with me.
#ionce felt dizzy in middle school, raised my hand, and told the teacher I felt faint as I fainted. #ionce took my boss’s show dog, a bull mastiff, for a walk to impress her with how I could handle dogs. He got spooked by another dog and took off running directly into traffic, dragging me behind him. #ionce caught the truck bumper on the side of the garage when I was backing out, and pulled the garage off the foundation. #ionce walked smack into the glass at a Levi store in the mall, thinking it was the way out. #ionce went on a teeter-totter with a boyfriend when I was 18 and full of liquor, and went flying over the handle and smashed my face, and my tooth went right through the middle of my bottom lip. Yes, I’m permanently scarred. #ionce flushed my phone down the toilet The phone got jammed in the base and the whole toilet had to be removed so my husband could chip the phone out.
#ionce substituted frozen Brussels sprouts for frozen broccoli in a quiche. It didn’t work.
How about you?
What are your funniest goofs? Confess!
