OMG - Someone SHUT ME UP!
Tuesday, June 16, 2009
I always used to get nervous talking in front of people. My brain to mouth filter just abandons me and I always make myself look like a total idiot. I thought I had gotten over this. Apparently, I haven't.
Last night at the Bucks County HOG meeting they introduced new members. Hubby and I were a couple of them. So they stand in front of him and ask what he rides. So he gives his name and the pedigree on the bike. Next the stand in front of me and ask what I ride. Okay, my brain to mouth filter was half functioning because the first thought that popped into my mind was "I ride him". Okay.... Got the teeth clamped together in time to NOT say that. Instead, before I can even think I say "I'm his b*tch". I then proceeded to turn redder than my hair and wanted the floor to open up and eat me.
There were some "boo's" and some whistles. I was surprised at how mixed the reaction was. Fortunately, there was a really sweet woman behind me who said quite loudly "Cool! I ride b*tch on a sportster too!" Unfortunately, I think I may have shut down a couple new friendships that were just starting with the comment.
Can I go back to shutting up and just hanging out in the background again now?
