My first real post in my blog and I have to write about something embarrassing.

I am in training this week, and on Monday I got to class about 7 a.m. I was drinking my coffee and I crossed my legs. I noticed a large black shoe. I said to myself, “I thought I put on brown shoes this morning.” I looked at my other shoe and gasped as I noticed I was wearing a black shoe on my left foot and a brown shoe on my right. I felt really embarrassed and like a first-class idiot.

The instructor of the class informed us all that we would have to give introductions of ourselves. “Great… A perfect time for everyone in the class to notice what an idiot I am”, I thought to myself. So I decide to get up in front of the class and inform everyone that I goofed and wore mismatched shoes to class. Of course everyone laughed and made fun of me for the rest of the day, but at least I didn’t go around hoping nobody would notice. In this particular case, I’d rather everyone know than for me to second-guess myself and go around all day feeling self-conscious. Some of the guys in class even complimented me on my honesty and sense of humor.
