Okay so I have a few EMBARRASSING stories to share with ya’ll. But first of all, I’ll tell you what sparked this blog post
So just a little background, Craig talks in his sleep – like ALL THE TIME! Here’s one from last night:
Tune in for the 0100 edition of Sleep Talking with Craig!
Craig: KALISSA! Kalissa! Wake up! Did you put a picture of your butt crack on Facebook?!?
Me: JUMPS OUT OF BED, grabs my phone, searches through every social media account
Also me: WHAT!?! What!? OH MY GOSH! Why would you say something like that Craig?!
Me: after several minutes of panic No I did not Craig!!
Craig: snoring obviously just dreaming about me posting my butt crack on Facebook
Me: now terrified, still slightly panicking, can’t fall back asleep
This has been sleep talking with Craig Friedman.
So there is some merit as to WHY this would freak me out so much! So at work, we have a Facebook group that has all of the nurses and doctors and techs in the group and people post in there funny memes or if they need a schedule switch, leaders post available shifts etc.
So about a month ago, I had just woken up from a nap at my mom’s house and I was looking on Facebook, scrolling through the group, and mom called me in the kitchen. I set my phone down on the counter and mom and I started talking about supper. About 5 minutes later I get a call from our unit educator and (full disclosure – sorry Shannon) I didn’t answer it. I thought if it was important they will leave a message (guilty – I can’t be the only one who does that!)
So then I get a series of text messages – my phone is blowing up and the texts say:
YOU’RE GOING LIVE IN THE GROUP
I see your mom’s ceiling fan broadcasted in the group! I think you accidentally went live on Facebook!
Sure enough, there was the video posted for all my coworkers and colleagues to see if my mom’s ceiling fan rolling for about 5 minutes while mom and I talk about what to make for supper. I had set my phone down on the island so the camera was recording the ceiling fan. Which isn’t terrible but the very first frame of the video is ME who JUST WOKE UP FROM A GREAT NAP looking like this:
I immediately deleted the video – it already had 5-10 people watching at the time as everyone in the group gets a notification if there is a new post. I made some post kind of like “ha – sorry about that – I accidentally went live in the group – you missed out on my mom’s ceiling fan and discussions of what to make for supper.” I wasn’t even off of orientation yet so still very new to the CCU group and this is my introduction I guess!
SO, in conclusion, I’m VERY paranoid about ACCIDENTALLY posting something on Facebook because it has happened to me! Although, not sure why I would be so paranoid about a picture of my butt crack being posted because I DON’T HAVE A PICTURE OF MY BUTT CRACK!
I hope this gave you all a chuckle, if it did please give this post a like or a laugh on Facebook! Have a great Friday everyone! I’m off to work the weekend on a 4 day stretch!
I hate to post something funny and lighthearted without recognizing the gravity of today’s date, September 11th. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the events that happened 19 years ago. I’ll always remember being pulled in from recess, my first grade teachers were all crying as they struggled to explain what this truly means to a room full of children. I can’t imagine the pain and suffering our country went through on that day, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand but I always like to post this prompt on September 11th as we all have the same moment in time where our lives were impacted:
Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
