I did it again...
...ABSOLUTELY humiliated this time...
...I wasn't with my friends.
I wasn't with my family.
...I was with a client! A VERY important client!
This is how the conversation played out...(I will be using an "x" and a "y" in place of real names, to protect the innocent):
Very Important Client: "Speaking of "X", I saw him at Hy-Vee over the weekend and he was with a different lady."
Me: "Oh yeah? Who was the lady, do you know?"
Very Important Client: "I didn't recognize her, but what happened to "Y"? I thought they would end up married..."
Me: "Please. That relationship was a flash in the pants!"
Very Important Client: (catching his breath, after laughing hysterically) "I bet it was a 'flash in the pants', but I think you meant to say 'flash in the PAN!'...."
*Seriously, why don't people correct me?? I KNOW that isn't the first time I've said that!
