I have a little running blog joke I do on my posts when I do something really silly and embarassing. It's a great way to laugh at myself and not take things so seriously - which I am prone to do. I have never given this award to anyone else until now - and the honor goes to my husband Craig. We are in Lake Placid, NY ready go on our first paddle boat ride with the girls.
They won't allow more than three in a boat, so we rent two: Cici and I in one and Nini and Craig in the other. I get in to the first boat with the help from the girl who helping on the dock and then I help Cici on to my boat. I am talking with her and look out of the corner of my eye to see Craig half in the boat and half out of the boat. The boat is sinking quickly as he is scrambling to find a way to get back onto the dock without sinking the boat. Long story short he's half wet, our small camera is completely ruined, and all the people in the restaurant above the boat dock are laughing. Yes, it was quite the site! Craig stepped in the paddle boat incorrectly, which made the boat and him start to sink. They had to pump out the boat!
I was grateful that Nini was not in the boat at the time of the sinking incident. I can't say it was all that laughable at the time, since our camera was ruined - but the more I thought about it - the more funny it becomes - truly!
How easy is it for you to laugh at these type of moments? Do you find it takes time?
