One of those moments took place last night at my brother's graduation from The Master's College. I was excited to attend, not only to see him graduate but also to reconnect with old friends and classmates.
Jona, ever the gentleman, had dropped me and Penny off and had left to park the car. If he had been with me I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten myself into this situation. I had just walked in the gate and was talking to my friend Kylie, when a girl walked up.
"MEGS!!" I said, "How are you! It's been over a year since I last saw you! I think about you all the time Megschnizzle! Megan, whats been happening? I've missed you Meggo! ..." blah blah blah. It went on and on.
She was so sweet and gracious and was excited to see Pens and catch up a little bit. We laughed a little, I gave her several hugs and then we went on our way.
When Jona finally came in I said, "GUESS WHO I SAW!!!?? Megan Blah-Blah!! (her last name is obviously not Blah-Blah, but for the sake of protecting a little dignity that's what we'll call her)
Jona: "Who is Megan Blah-Blah?"
Me: "Are you kidding? She used to come over all the time. Jona, she's a good friend of ours! Come on, how could you forget her?"
Jona: "Do you mean Rachel Blah-Blah?"
Jona: "Please tell me you didn't call her Megan"
Me: "Oh man!! I am such an idiot! Not only did I call her Megan, but I gave her every "Megish"nickname I possibly could."
Jona: "Oh honey" (spoken sadly)
Jona just shook his head and my face almost exploded in embarrassment.
WHY DO THESE THINGS HAPPEN TO ME!
In all fairness, I know a girl named Megan with the same last name as Rachel. However, they are not related and do not regularly swap first names. I texted Rachel several times to apologize & she said she didn't notice. Yeah right. Megan is such a liar.
