Uh...that would be a very loud YES! (lol) During my younger years, you could pretty much blow on me, and I'd sport a red face. Now, not so much.
Many, many years ago, I had a close friend who came from a very wealthy family of physicians. She had everything a young person could want, but every time we went to a restaurant to eat, she'd steal a roll of toilet paper. Yes, you heard me correctly.(lol)
The first time it happened, I tried to get the roll back from her and put it back in the bathroom, and that of course didn't work. Meanwhile, I was super embarrassed, telling her that what she was doing just wasn't cool. It didn't help that someone actually saw her with the evidence. Living in a 6 bedroom house with all the bells and whistles, she obviously didn't need a stockpile of toilet tissue. I mean, what in the heck, right? Other than that, she was a really fun person to hang out with, and we laughed all the time.
Needless to say, it wasn't a one time incident. Over the course of a year, it happened about 8 times, and no matter how hard I tried to convince her to stop, nothing worked. Back then, no one was really going to arrest her for taking a roll of toilet paper from a restaurant, but I still had a hard time accepting that part of her personality. I mean, what would happen if her kleptomania escalated to diamond rings or electronic equipment, right? Embarrassment would be the least of my problems. So sadly, I ended the friendship. Ironically, she's now a retired Pediatrician in California and doing quite well. Now she gets her toilet paper fix by using coupons like the rest of us.
But what about you? Has your face turned red because of someone you know? How did you handle it?
I don't know if you had a chance to watch the Oscars this past Sunday, but one thing I noticed at the beginning of the show were the looks of joy on so many faces.
Dance + Smiles + Twizzlers + Junior Mints = Universal Love
The first show was in 1929 and lasted long enough to rush into the gas station to grab a drink and pump some gas - 15 Minutes!
Sadly, the duo from Price Waterhouse has been banned for life from any further Oscars for that now very famous error.
