Pride Goeth Before A Pasting

Toothpaste seems to be my arch enemy the past few mornings. Yesterday, I was running late. Well, I wasn’t actually late, but I was afraid I was going to be, so I was rushing. It was about 7:00am and I had been up since a little after 5:00 (Gee, what a virtuous woman) I only add that so you understand that it was perfectly normal that I had already had several cups of coffee and it was a slight possibility that my hands were shaking (only a little. I promise.) So, I was brushing my teeth with my electric toothbrush, which is the last step of my “getting ready” routine, and somehow, it just jumped out of my hand. It was still powered on, so my bright blue Crest gel was launched all around the bathroom, including all over me. Naturally, I was wearing white.

This morning, however, was a little different. Again, I was all ready for work and brushing my teeth. But while I was brushing, I was admiring my hair in the mirror. Yes, you heard me right. I was admiring myself. You see, when you have naturally wavy hair that has a mind of its own, it’s rare that you have a hair day that you are happy with. Today was exceptionally good, if I do say so myself. And, I was…saying so…to myself, I mean. So, yes, I was thinking something along the lines of, “Girlfriend, you are lookin’ good today”. In hindsight, this was not a bright idea. As a matter of fact, as I stood there and admired and brushed, and just about the time it was dawning on me that I was acting a little prideful, a huge drip of toothpaste and spit went rolling right down the front of my shirt. It was totally disgusting. Any previous thoughts I had about how great I looked were immediately eradicated. Pride problem solved…at least for today.
