This entry inspired by...

Last week I asked for blogging ideas to help me along with getting back into blogging regularly. The following entry was inspired by the suggestion of writing about my most embarrassing moments...
When I was 17, I met and began dating my first love (because I don't like to use names 'I'll call him Ashley). Before I met him, I had only had one other boyfriend. My high school sweetheart and I dated for the 3 years prior and because we were so young, we didn't really 'date' we just went from being friends to being a couple. So, dating was a new experience for me when Ashley and I got together. He was nearly 4 years older than me, he was charming and very good looking - because of this combination, in the beginning I was completely intimidated (not to mention smitten) and a nervous wreck every time I had to be alone with him. At the time, neither one of us had a car so when we went out I had to borrow my brother's car and pick him up. I was always so nervous and had only been driving a few months (bad combination).
On our second date, I was a nervous wreck and inadvertently turned down a one way street going the wrong way (a street I had driven on a hundred times before 'going the right direction) and was pulled over by a cop. I was mortified when he began with 'Have you been drinking' I said no and he asked a few more questions before going back to his car to run my licence and write me a ticket. While we waited, Ashley turned to me, smiled gently and asked if I was ok. I said yeas, but I really wanted to die. The officer came back to the car and walked up to Ashley's window instead of mine. He handed him the ticket he wrote me and asked 'Do you have a licence son? Ashley replied 'yes sir, I do' The officer then said, 'Then I suggest you drive from now on' 'Yes sir, Ashley answered and got out of the car to come around to my side to take over driving. It was awful! He took it quite well and was lovely about it. A few blocks away, he pulled over and let me drive again (although I don't know why).
Later that night, I dropped him off at a friend's apartment complex and while backing away 'I backed right into the designated garbage area and knocked down 4 or 5 metal garbage cans making the loudest crash! He stood there and smiled at me and waved before I sped away in utter embarrassment! I don't know why he went out with me again, but believe it or not 'we stayed together for 2 more years after that and when ever I dropped him off at that friends house, without fail 'I crashed into those damned garbage cans!

Hi Erren,
This entry was brilliant! The bit about the rubbish bins was really funny! I'm sorry you haven't had the chance to find many English mates - You sound like a good laugh and I'd be glad to know you.
Kind Regards,
Bev

Vicks First Defence

I always catch something when I fly. Every time I get on a plane, I make sure I pack cold & flu medicine because I know I'll be sick for the next week. I told my doctor about it because I was wondering if I could get a hold of something over the counter to help. I know in the US they sell things that are supposed to help. He told me to buy Vicks First Defense (which is available in the UK over the counter, but as of last November, was not available in the US). It's a nasal spray that you don't inhale. You simply squirt it into the side of your nostril a couple of times and wait a few seconds before you take a breath through your nose (avoiding taking a deep breath for a few minutes - I once inadvertently inhaled it and let me tell you, it was painful so take my word for it - don't inhale it). The spray is supposed to form a thin layer of gel at the back of the nose, where it should trap the virus, disarm it and help the body to flush it out. I was hesitant w…

Kicked the habit with an e-cigarette

I quit smoking when I moved to the UK, mainly because I promised my husband I would.  I did it for him, but not because I wanted to.  I enjoyed smoking.  I missed it, but quit successfully for many years until I went through a stressful time and started again.  My relapse lasted over a year.  The whole time, I was ashamed of myself.  I hated the smell.  I hated how I felt, I hated the health risks and I hated my lack of willpower.
     I've known a few people who have tried e-cigarettes.  I was a skeptic.  I thought it was going from one habit to another.  The people I knew that tried it, always had it and were constantly sucking on it.  It seemed to me they were more addicted to it then they were cigarettes.  I don't know any smokers that constantly had a cigarette in their hand.
     Then in January, I saw a piece about it on the BBC News.  I watched with interest thinking they were going to say that they have found it to be harmful.  What they said was quite the opposite.…

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after o…
