1. When you're at the self-checkout at the supermarket, and you accidentally pick the Spanish option. And then the machine starts speaking to you in Spanish, and you had 3 years of high school Spanish and 1 semester of college Spanish, but apparently you never learned self-checkout Spanish vocabulary. Plus you have your iPod on, so you can't hear very well. So then you have to ask someone working there how to turn off the Spanish. All while a line is forming behind you. (Moral: Stop listening to the iPod all the freaking time and pay attention to what you're doing.)
2. When you're eating dinner with your boyfriend's cousin and husband, and the cousin stops eating his mashed potatoes and pulls something out of his mouth and you realize it's one of your hairs. In the mashed potatoes that you made to go along with the roast pork loin with beer sauce. (Moral: Hairnet. And a phenomenal dessert with no hair ingredients.)
