ThAt WaS AwKwArD!!

“Hello, My Name is Robynn and I’m a GeEk.”  (Is there a support group for this sort of thing?)

I remember telling my students that I was a geek and they would immediately come to my defense saying, “Oh, no!  You are not a geek, Ms. Hofer!”  But I ReAllY aM.  (Thanks students for the vote of confidence.)

I find myself in these AwKwArD situations and many times I had nothing to do with getting into them in the first place.  But there I am.  Smack dab in the middle of it, between a RoCk and a HaRd PlAcE.   For example, I’m in a social setting where someone begins talking unkindly about another person who is not in our presence.  I would say something but 1.) I’m picking my mouth off the floor in disbelief that such a comment was even said in the first place &  2.) What should I say?  

In these situations, it makes me feel like a geek – awkward, uncomfortable, and at a loss of what to say or do.  I want to run and hide.  Why?  Because I have an ImAgE to uphold.  After all, I am well put together, refined, and always know what to do.  (Yah, right!)

If I’m honest I will admit I don’t always know what to do.  The beauty of acknowledging this is that then I qualify for help from above.  So here I am: RaW, transparent, and yes, even a geek.  But that’s ok.  I will take all the help I can get.
