just plain awkward Thursdays



awkward
- so tuesday afternoon i noticed this little hard bump on the bone behind my right ear. i proceed to push on it, which gives a sharp aching pain. and silly old me decides, "oh, hey, i should keep doing this. maybe it will help it go away." then i decide to show the mister who proceeds to say, "maybe it's a volcanic zit that's coming in." yeah, because i get those all the time. not. and then he decides to push on it too. a few hours later this sharp aching pain has traveled all down my right neck resulting in a 2 hour sleep and the rest of the night crying in self pity on the couch catching up on The Voice. *p.s. if you watch this show, i definitely think that Juliet Simms should have won. just saying.
moving along, turns out that hard little bump was an inflamed lymph node from my cold a few weeks back. and thanks to all my prodding, i'll be looking like the above picture for the next few days. ouch!

- this conversation...
          hubby: tan, check out that old mans running shorts.
              me: where? i don't see him.
          hubby: to your right. in the bright orange short shorts.
              me: um, that wasn't an old man. that was a pregnant woman.
          hubby: are you sure?
              me: ....yeah.
          hubby: did she have really blonde hair or something?
              me: yeah. but how did you not notice the giant pregnant belly?
          hubby: i thought he was just fat...was she pretty?
              me: why does that matter? (proceeded with a little punch. yeah, we love each other...)

- catching the mister up on all of the vampire diaries episodes while waiting in line for our food. and then having a serious chat about what we would do if one of us got turned into a vampire. needless to say, many concerned stares from the old couple in front of us.

- re-recording voicemails 5x over because the stupid voicemail box keeps cutting you off with that perfect little voice saying, if you would like to listen to your message, press one. if you would like to delete and re-record your message, press two. if you would like to send your message with normal delivery, press three.......are you still there? *repeat. so, sorry if you received many awkward, and sometimes frustrated messages that don't make any sense from me, danielle.

- while playing soccer, telling everyone "you got it", then totally missing the ball when you go to kick it, not realizing, and sit there smiling with pride while the opposing team comes in and takes it. seriously, how does that happen? i blame it on the adrenaline rush.

  1. Oh no! I'm sorry about your lymph node! I had that one time, and I had to get a biopsy done on it just to make sure it wasn't cancerous. Because it did seem to come out of nowhere! Hopefully yours will go away soon! Your hair is cute like that too! And yes, Juliet totally should have won the voice. I thought out of those 4, Jermaine should have been 4th. I was not happy. LOL. <3

  3. Dratted lymph node! Sorry to hear. :-(

    Also, your topknot? Love the "slinky" effect of it -- I only get that same effect accidentally, I can never intentionally make it be like that. Tips? Or are you in the same boat? Heh.

    Oh, and I chortled at your soccer anecdote, hee!

  5. ha that's rather funny! I do that... I think as long as I poke it continously no matter how much it hurts, it'll go away!

  9. I would probably do the same thing. I always think "maybe if I keep messing with it, I'll figure out the real problem" but that never happens. And I totally thought Juliet was going to win!

  14. Lots of awkwardness around your parts! ;) When we got out to eat, we always play "Zombie Apocalypse" and try to figure out how we'd survive if trapped in that restaurant with zombies outside? Ever been in a Cracker Barrel?? Definitely the place I want to try and last out a Zombie Apocalypse!

    Happy Thursday, TJ! :)

  23. Last time I had to rerecord my work voicemail message I ended up writing down what I was going to say because I flubbed it so many times. Even after writing it, I still rerecorded it 4 times. That stuff is hard!

    ReplyDelete
  24. that story about the swollen lymph node, made my lymph node hurt :( Stop poking it :)

    I hate voicemails. I am going to re-record mine soon though...all it's gonna say is: "Hey, it's Samantha, hang up & text me." Because I seriously don't answer my phone. Someone calls me, leaves me a voicemail, and then I text them back. I always feel terrible for doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I HATE the woman who always cuts off my voicemails. Sometimes I just give up because I'm so sick of re-recording the dang message. Total pain in the butt.
    Hope your swollen lymph node gets better!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have battled with the Voice Mail lady too many times. I eventually just give up and text. I really hope your neck feels better.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Aw hope your lymph node feels better soon! And that convo about the pregnant lady is hilarious!

  32. Do you pick Eric zits and he picks yours? :) My family loves doing that. Except me.... Hope your ear gets back to normal soon!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That bump behind your ear does sound like it'd make for an awkward day, TJ! Hope you are feeling better. =)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sounds painful but at least you look good in the picture, right?

    ReplyDelete

  38. juliet was my girl. how did she not win? i'm not sure. i know kim kardashian was endorsing jermaine on twitter....that could have made a difference, considering she has, like, a trillion and one followers.

    in related news, WHY on God's green EARTH was christina aguilera not wearing pants? she looked hooorrrrible!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ahh! I hope you feel better soon! Literally laughed out loud and the pregnant woman convo! Too funny!

  61. You and the mister are so cute. I've totally had many relatable "I've got it" moments when I was in collage while I was in beginner volleyball. Then I'd miss and say, "just kidding." Can you say totally awkward! I knew no one in the class! Hahaha. It's not like I was going to go pro or anything. :) Get better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my word!!! That old man vs. pregnant lady bit! ...can't help but laugh but also feel a little bad for the lady ;) XO brynn

  65. I can't blame you for poking it though. I would've assumed it was a tumor or cancer though. But I wouldn't have went to the doctor. I would've just worried about it non-stop like the mature thing to do. haha that's funny your husband didn't know she was pregnant...or a "she". Sometimes men have those big pregnant-like bellies though so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Your hair is beautiful! I am jealous that you have so much. I love big messy buns. I hope your lymph node is feeling better. I had one under my underarm once and MY GOD it was painful.

    ReplyDelete
  67. there isn't anything i love more than vampire diaries and the voice! bless your good taste soul!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love vampire diaries!! glad someone else does haha.
