Today I asked my 7th grade daughter to drop something off in the school office when she entered. She told me that she would not because it was embarrassing. I then told her that I would do it tomorrow, but I would go in wearing pajamas and a shower cap and be sure to announce who I was.

My daughter chuckled and said I would never do that. When I asked her why she was so sure she said, “I am not saying that you are not embarrassing, you are just not purposefully embarrassing.”

I am not sure if I should be insulted, or inspired to work on my embarrassment level.
