Get Ready for National GET OVER IT DAY!

As I was getting dressed this morning I saw on Good Morning America that tomorrow is National Get Over It Day. WTF? Isn't that great, some moron decided to pluck a day off of the calendar and turn it into a day to wander back into time and re-visit all of our blunders, failed relationships, failed professional endeavors, embarrassment, and generally sucky crap that has happened to us in the past year, then get over it? What makes this bad is I was over it until someone came along and reminded me by designating a National day for me to forget it.

Well, since it's on my mind now I might as well indulge. Granted my moments are not as bad as the Canadian singer that forgot the words to the National Anthem at a hockey game, walked off the ice, came back to start over and fell as she stepped back out on the ice. Ya know, I had managed to forget her and her moment of grace until GMA had her on this morning in light of the "holiday" and replayed it 4 times as she talked about it. But since we are now all in this together, because now you also are aware of this day, lets share.

My most embarrassing moment was totaling a 4 year old mint condition BMW that was a college graduation gift from my father. Of course he was mad, after all he gave it to me only two weeks before. I was immediately kicked off my parents insurance and was told to fend for myself. Fair enough. I go buy a new Dodge Stratus for a great price. My friend was a dealer so that’s what makes this next part even more embarrassing. One week after I bought it, I drove to VA beach to visit my friends and my cousins. Yes, you guessed it, I rear-ended a truck and totaled my new car. On the strip. In front of a nightclub. (P.S. I was not drinking, smoking, doing lines, playing with the radio, reading, sewing, or having sex while driving either time.)Needless to say, I bought another car, from the same dealer. (Still haven't lived it down...6 years later) This time I parked it and walked everywhere that I could. I still do. I only log 4,000 miles a year because I never drive if I don't have to. To end this story sadly yet somewhat comical. My permanent tags for both cars came in at each of the dealerships at the sometime. Which happened to be the day I returned home from VA via a Greyhound bus.

OK ~ What’s fair is fair people ~ Spill it! Then we will never mention it again, in honor of National "Get Over It Day"

The only thing that comes to mind for me is something that happened when I was in 6th grade. I used to take the bus to school and everyday the bus would pass over these really bumpy train tracks. All of us on the bus would stand up when we were nearing the tracks and jump as we passes over them. This made our jump pretty high since they were so bumpy. One day as we were jumping the bus stopped short due to the car in front of us. I just happened to be in the middle of my jump and landed face first in the aisle and got up with one very bloody nose. Needless to say, I was the laughing stock for quite some time and never did jump while going over those train tracks anymore.

I was about 25 and I was staying at my girlfriends house. We went out somewhere and got pretty fucked up. Sometime that night I got up to go to the bathroom but when I was done I went into her parents room instead. Needless to say I didn't have anything on. To this day I can't think about without turning red. Her parents were pretty cool and everyone had a big laugh at my expense.
