Ever just want to crawl into a hole and die?
During last night's Trivial Pursuit conversation, I recalled and told a story about myself. They found my humiliation funny, so I thought I would share it all with you. Gah, I'm getting red just thinking about it again.

Everyone at our office is pretty friendly with each other, and we tease and joke around a lot. There is only one person of color in our office, we'll call her Jill. Jill is one of the coolest project managers. She's always really laid back and takes everything in stride. She's older, but I'm not sure how old. She also happens to be incredibly beautiful and she has the nicest clothes. So one day she was wearing this really sharp outfit: Black pointy-toed high heeled boots, black wool dress pants, and a black fitted ribbed turtle neck sweater. She looked amazing wearing all one color. You following so far? So in my version of a compliment, I gave her my biggest sweetest smile and said, "Hey black lady!"

. . .

Obviously I meant the color of her outfit, but I could have sunk into the floor. I don't think my face has ever been so red. Jill thought it was pretty damn funny. I could have died.
