Sunday Poser # 25

As a teenager, I was easily embarrassed, something Other Brother exploited with his constant teasing which of course he found hilariously funny.
I was also very naive and had the trendiest pair of rose coloured glasses imaginable.
Failed romances, being hurt, lied to etc soon put pay to that, and although sometimes I would feel the inevitable flush of self consciousness creep into my face, I would laugh it off.
In later years, I could hold my own and today I can blame that tell tale flush on my post cancer meds.
But on one particular day in 2002 I was embarrassed beyond belief and have never forgotten it, or forgiven them.

This was not something I did, but the behaviour and inappropriate dress of a family member at a special event. Their language was not befitting for the occasion, and I was not only embarrassed to know them, but ashamed because we were related.
Sadly, I was not the only one for whom the day was spoilt, and it was that which, to me, was unforgivable.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That incident lives in your memory in a really bad way. Some people have no sense of what’s appropriate or not. I’m story to have brought up bad memories.

    *nods in sympathy* I’ve seen things at weddings (one particular one of a coworker) was awful. The bride’s father got rip roaring drunk and got into a fight with the Best Man and the Groom. The police were called. I heard later that by the time the police arrived the altercation had spread and about a dozen people were arrested. I left as soon as the voices started to be raised….
