What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done in the past week?

Seriously.  I have to know!

I started off the week by having to confess to my patients that I broke my thumb. Now you may ask…why is that embarrassing?  I have my reasons.  For starters, let’s just admit that I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.  This is why I choose sports like softball and kickboxing instead of sports like dancing or gymnastics.  However, when asked the most popular question of my week…”How did you break your thumb?”  I had to give the honest answer that I fell…getting into a truck.  This answer was generally responded to by silence and my patients looking at me with a bit of a blank stare while likely thinking I obviously wasn’t finished with my story yet.  After a few seconds of awkward silence, I would respond “And that is all.”  See…I told you I am not graceful.  I am many things…strong, fast, athletic, intelligent, determined and honest…but not graceful.  Then, of course, I got asked “How are you going to possibly adjust my neck or back with a broken thumb?”  And this was when I got to acknowledge that all those professors in chiropractic school really did know something important when they made us learn hundreds of ways to adjust the spine and extremities.  That was smart of you professors/doctors!!!  I appreciate it now even though I would have liked to believe that my favorite adjustments are the only ones I need to perfect.  Well…now I get to put that knowledge to excellent use for the next 4-6 weeks!

So…as I asked in the beginning…What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done in the past week?
