Please...know the name of your school!

I am the Queen of Embarrassing Moments. Seriously. So, here's one for your enjoyment!

Last year, I interviewed a local business owner. He was a nice older guy and he told me about his kids and how proud he was that they had attended Florida State University. He asked me, "So, where do you attend college?"

I attended the same school, so I started to say, "Why, I attend Florida State University!" Instead, I said, "I attend Tennessee State University." Um, no I don't. I moved from TN to FL five years ago and never attended college there.

I realized my mistake and I said, (I kid you not) "Oh, excuse me! I meant to say Tallahassee State University." WRONG AGAIN! Tallahassee State University doesn't even exist! What the heck?!

I managed to choke out, "Florida State U" before crawling away.

Was my brain on vacation?

Snicker... I have done things like that. Once I told a guy who had flaked out on one interview about all the people who flake out on me. Silence. Then he laughed. Good thing he had a sense of humor.

I always tell people, "I'm having a senior moment."

But then they look at me like I'm crazy - 'cause I'm not a senior - yet.

HILARIOUS! I sometimes spontaneously lie by accident. It's insane. And then I have to back my way out of it. So weird.
