VJ’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #124: EMBARRASSING MOMENTS

Posted on

It’s an old, at least 53 years old faux pass but I still feel ashamed of it, an incorrect word I  used in my haste to show my knowledge.

It so happened 53 years ago my newlywed elder sister came to visit my mother and me with his Christian husband on Christmas eve afternoon. After chatting for some time they got up to go but my mother insisted they go after dinner.

My bro-in-law declined to say he has to go with friends at night for…

Before he could finish, to show how much I know of their culture as I had studies at missionary school, I chirped in

‘Mother let them go they have to go for PAROLE’

Full marks to my BIL, real gentleman he is, very quietly without even smiling, he corrected ‘ carol, Indu, carol.’

With great difficulty, my sister suppressed her smile. I still feel embarrassed when I remember this.

Afterward, we all had a good laugh on that.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.
