Have a Laugh

11/26/2008   Comment on This

If you go on to the homepage of my website, you will see a hilarious picture of me not wearing any pants with my suit coat on. The other day I went to work out at the gym that is in the radio station's office building. I took the usual toiletries, suit, socks, shoes, etc. After my shower, I was dressing and discovered that my pants were not on the hanger that my suit coat was on. Oh my God!!

I would have left and gone home immediately, but the station had a mandatory meeting. If I left and went home, I would have not made it back on time. So being The Pinker, I went through the building in my shorts and suit coat. BEAUTIFUL. People on the elevator thought I lost my mind. I came into the station and immediately went to our GM and asked him permission to leave for obvious reasons. He declined and I showed up in my uniform.

Everyone had a great laugh, including me, and I realized in these tough economic times, that I was able to deliver some comic relief at my expense. I never had minded in the past and quite frankly enjoyed people being more embarrassed for me than I was embarrassed for myself.

I actually wasn't embarrassed. I thought it was funny and got to thinking that most people take themselves way too seriously. Lighten up a little. We are ALL flawed creatures that make mistakes daily. Laugh at yourself. It's quite healthy. It keeps you grounded and makes you realize that we all make mistakes. Be thankful that God made us flawed. Wouldn't it be boring if we were all so perfect?

Enjoy yourself and Happy Thanksgiving.

I'll still be checking my email during the holiday weekend so contact me and say "hello"!
