So I was sitting in staff meeting last Monday for Young Life. My ex-boyfriend also happens to be on staff and we remain cordial and do our best to keep it from being awkward.
Well each week we have an ice-breaker question to kind of dig into each other's lives and this week my boss asked an extra question for fun with the upcoming Valentines day.
So here goes, "What was your favorite valentine?" Well seeing as we broke up the day before Valentines day last year, I think it was safe to say not each other. Everyone remained calmed and I managed to not laugh beneath the weight of awkwardness that our boss had just unknowingly created. We were making our rounds through the room answering questions and then, as ex-boyfriend begins to answer, our boss stops him mid-answer.
Boss-man: WAIT A SECOND, did I just make this awkward for you two?!
Ex: pause...sheepish grin
Me: Well, not until you said something!
Boss-man: [cracking up, all the while eating up the awkwardness] Well I realized that there was a big elephant in the room so I figured I should address it!
Me: mmm, You shouldn't have.
A day in my life. Awkward.
But too funny not to share.
Merry Friday Y'all
