|Great photo right? When I had long hair, NOT REALLY.|
Haven't had my hair that long since high school. And I had bangs.
Continuing with the mini-series of embarrassing moments in church leadership, this short story involves some blood, so I thought you all would love a good zombie picture to top it off.
Hubs and I were attending a Christmas party in a nicely decorated home. It was a ministerial gathering, meaning the guests were all ministers and their wives from the local region. Some we knew well, and most we only saw at the annual parties. All are greeted with hugs.
I was nervous and feeling awkward as usual, even in a new and pretty outfit. I remember hearing myself saying stupid, inane things to the men and women around me, wishing I could be clever and witty.
That's when a minister I was talking with said, "Sweetheart, your ear is bleeding!"
We were standing right in front of a huge mantel mirror and I turned to look at myself and with horror saw a solid red line of blood from my ear to my dress neckline. I remember thinking of using his tie to stop the blood. So glad I had enough sense not to do that!
I scampered to the bathroom and got it stopped. The blood was from my earring and then I remembered what caused it to bleed. When that minister had hugged me it had been especially strong and I had heard a little "crunch" sound as his head pressed against my head.
He had made me bleed, than called everyone's attention to it and did not even know that it was his fault! And if you know me at all, you know that I said nothing.
