So, I won’t be getting my own TV show apparently…
The episode of Take Me to Your Mother the Dudes and I are in aired on NickMom last week.
Here’s what you need to know:
- I didn’t look like a complete lunatic. And, actually, I need to get my hair back to that color.
- Andrea is hilarious.
- If you watch, the Dude name secret will be out. Partially. After 5 years of blogging with nothing more than their birth order numbers to identify them, you can learn the names of Dude #2 & #3 because they give up the ghost in the show.

Also, I’ve determined that I am literally the most awkward human on the planet (did you see my hands in that show, or how about in this Wells Fargo video? Seriously. What. Am. I. DOING. With my hands?).
I sorta imagined that this would eventually go away. I’d get better with small talk. And, I’d remember to actually pick up my feet when I walk to avoid tripping over them and air. And, I’d stop being the chick who goes to the gym and, when the guy at the desk is all, “Hey, enjoy your workout!” I’m all like, “Thanks! Totally! You too!”
Only, he’s not working out. He’s working. And, instead of just saying never mind, or oops and moving on, I drag my faux pas all over that gym lobby with my, “I mean, haha, you’re not working out. You’re working. I here to am work out (indicates that I’m going to Zumba by doing the robot). Duh. You’re just being polite. And, WHY AM I STILL TALKING?! AHHH! Still! I should just go. I’m totally going to Zumba right now. While you actually stay right where you are. With your muscles. And. Um. Hahaha!” Salute him as I scurry round the corner and stumble up the stairs.
Every single moment of that actually happened. Last week. While I sweated profusely and blushed like a fourteen year old boy in a strip club. And he was smiling, but not like he meant it. More like he was afraid.
I find solace in the fact that BuzzFeed says I am not alone.
Awkward people unite: 23 Signs You’re an Awkward Individual. 21 of those, totally me. I can dance like a beast and speak in front of crowds (as long as I know they’re comprised of at least 75% bloggers similarly awkward humans) no problem.
