First, a little background. Over the years I’ve had two back surgeries, including a fusion. Overall, both surgeries were successful and brought tremendous relief.
When I woke up again, it was 11:28 am on Sunday!! I slept through two alarms and a phone call.
So, what’s the big deal?
Well, the deal is that I’m the Sunday School teacher! And I slept through Sunday School!
If there’s a positive side to this, it’s that I teach a class of adults, not little children. There wasn’t much chance that class members would leave and run in the road or cause other problems or harm to themselves.
Still, I was totally embarrassed. I e-mailed class members to apologize and got all kinds of responses.
At least if they cut my pay in half, it won’t make much of a difference. After all, half of zero is still zero.
Just the same, I am embarrassed!
Have you ever done anything embarrassing like this? What? Share -- just so I'll feel better!
