What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I used to be really good at documenting the funny, sometimes bizarre things that tend to happen to me. My friends always make fun of the awkward situations (and people) I seem to attract. I thought it’d be fun to round some of those up.
I was meeting Sam for lunch a few weeks ago (when it was still a little chilly) and was waiting for her on the porch of a restaurant. I’d been there for a few minutes when an older man, maybe in his 60’s, approached me to tell me he thought I should probably go inside.
Me: I’m sorry?
Him: You should go inside. I can tell you’re cold.
Me: I’m fine!
Him: No, really. You’re obviously cold.
Him: I can tell your cold. Your nips are showing. They’re cold, and they’re showing.
NOW. The above is obviously inappropriate no matter what, but I would like to state, for the record, that not only was I wearing a bra this day, I was wearing a hoodie. So no matter how cold I was, this man saw nothing.
I could either go inside like he suggested (which, NOPE), or leave (which, nope) so I just sat there and looked at him and didn’t say anything. He got in his car and left, and that was that.
What is wrong with people?
Side note: I texted my mom about this, and she texted back in all caps, MY NIPS, MY BUSINESS, which will now be my new life motto, thank you for understanding.
I met a new friend at the neighborhood pool a few weeks ago, who was wearing big sunglasses. She took them off, introduced herself and her little boy to me and Jack, and we hit it off. I mentioned I’d love to get together soon and we went on our ways.
Last week, I was at the pool, when she showed up in her big sunglasses. I wave and we strike up a conversation. I went to leave and said, “I’d love to have a coffee date with you and your sweet little boy (I couldn’t remember his name) soon!” She sat straight up and said, “How did you know?”
Her: How did you know it was a boy?
Her: Takes sunglasses off, is definitely not the same person I met a few weeks ago, does not even live in the neighborhood, and has just found out she’s having a baby boy.
Tell me something awkward that’s happened to you lately!
