totally awkward tuesday

So I thought I would write about an awkward situation that happened recently. First, let me give you a little background.

There is this man at work. We'll call him José. Let me preface this by saying that José is gorgeous. He's also off the market--married, kids, grandkid--but still gorgeous. He's only like 29 (yeah, I know, world's youngest grandpa), so it's not like he's an old guy. Anyway, he had an accident at home a couple of weeks ago and ended up breaking his wrist. He has a nice black cast on that baby and I like to tease him about its debilitating effects.

Well, have you ever tried to tie your shoes or button your pants with a cast on? I have and it's not very easy! Apparently it's not easy to unbotton things either, and that's where the awkwardness comes into play. I was helping Summer Intern learn something (my memory of other surround events was instantly erased) when José came up to us, spun his butt cheek toward me, and asked me if I could unbutton his pocket. I was about to laugh out loud and ask him if he was for stinkin' kidding me, but a glance at his face told me he was not joking. Now I know any one of my female coworkers would have taken complete advantage of this situation, as it was almost a complete invitation to grab his booty, but I resisted the temptation. (A booty grab would have been much more awkward!) I gingerly pinched the hem of his pocket, pulled it out and undid the button. He thanked me, stuck his radio in his pocket, turned and walked away.

Summer Intern and I immediately died laughing. She said she wasa jealous. I still don't know what to say. Definately the awkward situation of the week, if not month! Check out Tova's awkward situation on her blog, Secret Life of Tova Darling.

Good for you. I probably would have went for his butt myself...

Hey Katie,

I was looking for an email address so that I may respond to your comments/questions...No worries, I'll just chat with ya right here.

That college story is from ten years ago. I ended up graduating with a degree in music. :) That history course was a general ed course, although, when I first enrolled in college I was a declared history major. That lasted for about a minute.

As far as the wrap dress pic, I plan on posting one within the next week. My cousin and I are planning to go back to the Groove and ask the lovely sales lady if she can teach us all the tricks to wrapping. :D

Thanks so much for your comments! Peace and blessings...

hahahaha this made me laugh! That's sooo awkward, possibly more awkward than my man- leaving-his-boxers-behind story, since you actually had to come into contact with the boxer area. Poor guy...

I don't think I blushed Raine, but I may have. I am a blusher too, without even realizing it. Aventurista, he wasn't even a bit weirded out by it. It was like a totally normal request to him, which is why it was so weird to me! And I can't believe that guy works out commando! Especially with a phys therapist. Sometimes they even do awkward things like hold your legs up in the air! Imagine how awkward it was for the therapist! lol

Really? you believe a co-worker would have taken complete advantage of this situation? WOW I can not believe that! HAHA- God, if only I had been there and witnessed that event.. I am truly jealous of your experience with Jose (wait until I see him!)

Miss laneyandjackson... you are not allowed to tease "Jose" about his weirdness. OR mention things that I posted on Totally Awkward Tuesday!!! hahaha! I'm sure you are jealous! :p DON'T HATE! Love you! Wish we had actually had scary movie night tonight. Hopefully we'll have it next week!
