True Crime – Playing Musical Blogs

reneeRenée A. Schuls-Jacobson has a blog with her name on it.  I wish it had my name on it.  She blogs about teaching, family, writing, books and a host of life experiences that “don’t fit in a file folder”.  The whole thing is wrapped up with style, flare, and plain, old-fashioned, good writing.  She rocks a bikini so hard I SHOULD hate her, but I don’t.  That’s because she says things like: “I am learning to find beauty in the chaos.”  Great advice.

In her spare time (ha!) she’s hosting a series called #SoWrong where she has bloggy friends tell all about their most embarrassing moments.  The entries so far are stellar. I’m not sure how I snuck into the talent-pool, but I’m up to bat today.  Renée probably figured I’d have tons of embarrassing material.

She’s right.

So much material, in fact, that I had a hard time picking just one out of the over-stuffed filing cabinet that is my brain.  I went to Merriam-Webster online for inspiration and found the following example:

“I would never do anything to embarrass my family.”truecrimepeg

I figure that embarrass on steroids is shame.  My #SoWrong post is about the time I felt deeply and mortifyingly ashamed…of myself.

This one’s personal.  As soon as I hit “send” I kind of wished I hadn’t.   But what’s a little soul-baring between friends?

Head over to Renée’s blog to read “True Crime”, then hang around for all the other great stuff at her place.

    Peggles, your post was fantabulous-o!!!! Glad I could start my day with some rockin’ writing.


  3. Thank you so much for being at my place today. I’m sorry I’m JUST getting here now. Sometimes life gets in the way, but sometimes it is an enormous hole in your roof. Oy. It’s snowing in here.

      Oy is right! Hope real life gets better (and warmer) right quick, Renee!

      Thanks so much for hosting me. I’m heading out on the highway for an 8 hour drive, so I won’t be around much. But I really appreciate you having me over. Hope I didn’t leave the place in too much of a mess. 😉

    Heading over there now, Peg. (Who wouldn’t be intrigued by tales of embarrassment, shame, and utter mortification?)


  6. Peg, such fantastic writing (as always). I am very happy you hit that publish button after all.

    I felt your anguish, dear sister! I vaguely recall the details as you have.
    We all have our secret shames, don’t we?
    And, you are right about parents who do NOT make their kids face the consequences and the subsequent remorse. They do no service to their children. Love you!


  8. OH, what a story. The humiliation ….no wonder your header keeps changing ( giggles) Enjoyed the terrifying event


  9. On my way, right this minute!


  10. I’m pretty sure it would be easier for me to make a list of the times I DIDN’T embarrass myself!
    I can’t wait to check out your entry, Peg!
