Well luckily as I was preparing for this article...I experienced an awkward moment just to share with you all!! Yesterday, a friend of my fathers, recent co-worker at the power company, came to my home to check the wiring they had repaired a few months ago. He asked that I show him exactly where the repair work was done, so I walked to the spot in my back yard, I tripped over a pathway stone. I fell right down...and he asks.."Did you fall?" Of course I said no. I didn't get hurt, but was more embarrassed, and its hard to retain your "cool" after you do something like that.
My husband, always the southern gentleman would always as the question "how's your mama?" One man, who would wait on us at a favorite restaurant informed him that his mother was ill, so he particularly made a habit of asking him that question. One day his mother passed away, but my husband must have forgotten, because he continued to ask how she was every time we went back to the restaurant. Im sure it was very awkward for him, and it was for me too, but my husband just apologized and went about ordering his food.
When I went to the mall the other day, this man must have felt the same way, as I stopped by his counter to catch up with him, he asked how My husband was! I had to remind him too that he had passed away.
