**Linking up with MamaKat today in sharing an embarrassing moment**
When Olivia was 2 and Gabe was 1, we headed out for a 2 week trip to upstate New York and Maine. We stopped for one-night in Burlington, Vermont. (You want to go there…it’s where Ben and Jerry live!)Matt went to the grocery store and saw a poster that said Shania Twain was going to be performing in town that night. Oh. My. God. I. Love. Shania. Twain. And she was going to be in the town where we were staying. That night.
WHAT??? NO WAY!!
We called the bar…called The Rusty Nail…where she would be playing to double-check that it was true. Oh yeah. She’s going to be here. Get here early for good seats. Have I mentioned that, other than shopping, I hate going places by myself? But, damn it, it’s SHANIA!! I’m in a different state, I don’t know a soul, but I’m going.
So I put her CD in my purse and headed out around 10 to see Shania. Yes, I took the CD so she could sign it, ok? Just in case. Have you not figured out yet that I’m a total dork? I get there early and get a good seat. I get a drink and settle in. I start talking to the woman next to me and she says “Are you looking forward to the show? This woman is so good.” Then she says…
“You’d never know she’s not Shania.”
So I don’t want to seem like an idiot that came to see the real Shania, but I want to know what the heck she’s talking about, so I’m all like “Really? She’s that good? I’m from out-of-town and just wanted to get away from the fam for a bit” You know, playing it all casual….The woman says “Yeah, this Shania Twin is amazing! She looks and sounds just like her!”
You heard it right.
I thought I would die of embarrassment even though not one soul in that room knew that I thought it was the real Shania. I was embarrassed just for me.
I stayed for quite a while and had a great time. I met some nice women at the bar and we shared stories and drinks and enjoyed Twin’s music. The best part was saved for when I got back to our camper and told Matt the whole story. We laughed so hard the camper shook.
And it’s our number one favorite story of all time.
What’s your most embarrassing moment?
