Dorkbloggers is having a contest, and you can read about it here
(And although Andy the Bastard once left a comment on my journal that mentioned Aonther definition of 'dork'...which is,um....'a part of a whale',lol, to put it 'p.c.'.....I believe This definition is closer to what Dorkbloggers is about...............
dork \dork\ (d[^o]rk), n.
1. a person who is stupid, socially inept, or ridiculous; )
While it was difficult for me to pick out only ONE 'dorky' entry to submit for the contest (as the love of my life put it "there are So MANY"...oohhh,"harsh",LOL)
I finally decided that the 'dorky moment' that I first mentioned as part of a post here in 2006 is one of my Most Dorky Moments.
So, for your reading pleasure:) here is my submission for "Friday the Dorkteenth" (and as soon as I figure out how they are doing the voting, I'll pass that along!)
I had previously had an experience where I hit the metal 'Children's Miracle Network' donation thing at the Dairy Queen drive-thru window while pulling up to pay, and thought I was the only person who'd ever done this.
However, I was very excited the other day to meet someone else who'd done the same thing!I went home from Subways(which is next to Dairy Queen) and told my boyfriend"Hey, I met someone else who hit the donation thing at the drive-thru window at Dairy Queen!"
He asked me,"Exactly HOW would this subject ever come up in the first place?"
I said"well, when I was in Subways, I was reading the menu on the board and walking sideways at the same time(doing 2 things at once again, when will I learn?) and I sort of bumped into the chips display and it kind of got caught on my jeans pocket for a second.....and then the poor kid behind the counter tried to stifle a laugh,so I looked at him and said 'yeah, I am a dork' .
(The boyfriend said,"I'm not sure you needed to tell him that, he might have already figured that out!")
and I went on to tell the kid...'not too long ago I ran into the Children's Miracle network donation thing while pulling up to the drive thru over at Dairy Queen" and the kid told me 'Oh, I've done that!"
and I was just so HAPPY to learn that someone else had done it!
Well, both my boyfriend and my daughter were convulsed with laughter while I was happily telling them this story, and then my boyfriend finally managed to gasp out....."the picture of you walking thru Subways with the chips display attached to you, in my head!"......and doubled over laughing again.And I said "Hey! It was only caught on my jeans pocket for just a second!"
I emailed this story to my family(who are used to stories like this ) and my MOM emailed back later in the day and said "This is hysterical.I keep rereading this just to laugh."(which I thought mothers were supposed to be a little more sympathetic?lol)
(well, that's my submission, hope you enjoy it! and for further evidence of dorkiness, I really have no idea whatsoever as to a) why my fonts changed in the middle of the post and b)why I can't put all of the post in the same color!:)
