Well,all my fellow blogging buddies.......the curriculum conference in Philadelphia was fantastic. I am leaving for the mountains in the morning so I will write a blog post about it when I get back, for all you teachers out there....was simply awesome and I learned a lot.  When I got back, a friend invited me to go see a movie matinee with her.


When we walked in the already dark theater, I spotted a good friend chatting and enjoying her popcorn and a drink. I would know her head of hair anywhere....soooooooooo, I went behind her and stuck my hand in her popcorn and said " You not going to share any with your old buddy gf?" thinking she would get a kick out of me teasing her.

I don't know whose mouth dropped open wider...mine or the stranger who turned around and looked at me like I had lost my mind. I would have crawled under the seat, but I am too big...sigh. I apologized and told her I thought she was someone else...and offered to replace her popcorn. ......sooooooooo, maybe I need a longer break to rejuvenate.....as a result, we are headed to Biltmore House in the morning. I miss all my blogging buds......have a wonderful week-end......muwahhhhhhhhhh

The next time I go to the movies, I am definitely wearing my glasses!

    Now THAT was awesome. I've had close encounters with the same type of thing, luckily, each time I've realized it's not who I thought it was BEFORE the point of no return.

    Glad you're briefly back. I look forward to the day it's for real.

    LMAO Girl...I don't go to the movies without mine at ALL! I can't see a thing in the dark. LOL So glad to see you're still ALIVE! I've missed you terribly! Enjoy your time off, and look forward to hearing about your trip!

    Oh my gosh, I'm laughing out loud here!!!!! I know it probably wasn't funny at the time....but you gotta admit - NOW....it's freaking hilarious!!!! Sounds so totally like something I would do!!!

    Enjoy your time at Biltmore. I was there a few years ago. BEAUTIFUL place to visit!

  10. Theresa Milstein // July 9, 2010 at 11:04 AM

    Oh lucky you! I have not been to Biltmore but would love to go and some mountains to climb, well that would be heavenly instead of climbing frames and slides :-) Have a wonderful weekend

  12. Saimi // July 9, 2010 at 9:49 PM  

    That is so funny!! I bet you were mortified!! Try to enjoy the rest of your summer, it tends to go fast!

  13. mrs. c // July 9, 2010 at 11:58 PM  

    I have mistaken someone for a friend before and I felt like a fool! I just explained that i was old and sometimes my mind stopped working! Oh well...glad you had a great tie at the conference, I always come back so excited and "fired up"!

  14. Over Yonder // July 10, 2010 at 12:13 AM  

    OH that is hilarious. (if you are not the person that it happened to!) That sounds like something my hubby would do...has done.

    WhOAH nelly. I have asked you a couple times where in this state you live...but I never come back to find your response. By your Biltmore reference you could about be my neighbor!!! hahah!

  15. Bernie // July 10, 2010 at 12:45 AM  

    Still chuckling over this my friend, I can just see both of your faces....too funny.....Hugs

  16. Cheeseboy // July 10, 2010 at 1:05 PM  

    Ha ha! That is so stinkin' awesome. I would have just laughed and laughed at you if you had done that to my popcorn.

  17. T.J. // July 10, 2010 at 10:02 PM  

    he, he- oh well!

    Glad to hear the conference was informative and fun :) enjoy exploring the Biltmore over your break!

    I found you from some other blog site.
    This blog made me laugh. I am in the education field and come from a long line of teachers. All need a break some time. Apparently some more than others.
    Great stuff!

    That is hilarious! I hate moments like that, but I thought waving at a stranger was embarrassing, but THAT takes the cake!

    Good news! I got a job teaching first and second grade at a Christian school! So I'll probably be hitting you up for some advice!

    First off, what is your favorite place to get teaching supplies?

  23. Alicia // July 20, 2010 at 4:23 PM  

    Hilarious! :P

  24. Mr. Stupid // July 24, 2010 at 6:57 AM  

    HAHA That's so funny. I wonder what the stranger was thinking... LOL
    Hope you have a great trip...:)

  25. Jenny // July 25, 2010 at 8:18 AM  

    That is hilarious but must have been so embarrassing for you at the time :-( Thanks for sharing with us!!

    Enjoy your extra time off :-)

    OH my goodness that is hilarious! I'm sure that both of you really were shocked!

    Hope you are having a great trip!

  28. LouAnne // August 5, 2010 at 7:06 PM  

    That has to be the best most embarrassing moment ever. You could win awards. Hope you're enjoying your well deserved break. We loved the Biltmore and want to go back very, very soon!

  29. Teresa @ ♥ Too Many Heartbeats ♥ // September 9, 2010 at 5:51 PM  

    That is SO funny! I can imagine you were embarrassed, but it still had to be funny afterward. LOL!
