Happy Hump Day: 10 Awkward Things to Avoid This Holiday

22 Dec


As much as we try to be perfect, pretty ‘n’ elegant most of the time, many of us have an awkward side…at least a little one. And some of us (including myself) have a higher percentage of awkwardness, though I’ve learned the only way to get through it is to laugh it off. If I didn’t know how to laugh things off, I’d be permanently blushing (or hiding away in my apartment). But for the most part we try to avoid awkward situations…so here are 10 things to try to stay away from this holiday season. Oh, and Happy Hump Day!

1. Going in for the kiss when the receiver was definitely just going in for the hug – makes for awkward movements all around, so be sure to survey the scene carefully before you make false judgements

2. Slipping on your ass in the middle of the sidewalk, or better yet in the middle of the street due to icy conditions & the fact that you wore high-heels ’cause you’d rather look sexy than be comfy and safe (done this many-a-time) 

3. Clogging your boyfriend’s parents’ toilet…the very first time you meet them (not a good first impression) – attempt to de-clog yourself before you call for help 

4. Throwing up on your date (I almost did this the other night though I held it in until I got home- funny thing was I wasn’t even drinking…it was just some random bug-yeesh)

5. The ever-so-awkward overly-enthusiastic “I loveeee it!” after you receive a present you absolutely HATE…at least act a little natural for goodness sake. No one gets that excited about an ugly sweater from Aunt Sue. 

6. Getting so used to saying “I love you” to the fam that you end up accidentally throwing it out there to the mailman, the plumber or your taxi-driver. (oops) 

7. Sending an overly mushy, gooshy, lovey-dovey email meant for your boyfriend/husband/lover to your boss

8. Getting a huge chunk of spinch stuck in your tooth during the first date with your new crush…and not realizing it until you get home to take off your makeup 

9. Accidentally drinking too much red wine and saying way too much…way too fast…way too soon 

10. Running into all your past enemies/exes/etc. at the local pub while everyone’s home for Christmas and having to make the same old small talk you do every other year

    OMG these are a riot. I’m cracking up – esp at the one about almost puking on a date. OMG!

    Slipping on sidewalks I would probably have fallen down on anyway but doing it much quicker due to inappropriate (yet sexy) footwear? Guilty as charged.

    Umm… yeah. Most of these are things I worry about. Natural awkwardness/affection for red wine does not help me, either.

    Happy holidays! 😀

    So funny!!! I feel like #1 is the most awkward part of…life. Misjudging hugs/kisses/handshakes…at the holidays, trying to determine who gets what…awful.

    Nine is the one to note. I always tell my readers to stick to a two drink maximum, it’s the only way us women can keep our cool and not transfer into to TMI (too much information) territory.
