The Woes of being single.

I just got back from a funeral -- the funeral of a co-worker's father-in-law. The funeral was nice and reserved, except for the two baby boys who decided they wanted to play with each other from two pews away (but they were so cute!).

But prior to the service, I got served a slice of Humiliation Pie when my co-worker (it was her FIL) decided to INTRODUCE ME TO ONE OF THE PALL BEARERS!!

She started with:

"Oh! I've been wanting to introduce you two!"

and continued with these zingers:

"Jennifer is unattached!"


"Do you think Eric is handsome?"


"Eric, she just lives right up the road from you, in Cleveland, about 15 minutes from your house, I think!"

I wanted to crawl under the carpet (or in the casket) to downplay my embarassment.

And then when I got in the car, my boss asked me what I thought about him too.

Remember to check the local obits this weekend. I may ACTUALLY die of embarassment.
