So cute & funny, Harmony πŸ˜€

I chuckled aloud!

You’re not alone. I’ll hold your hand and sponge in some of your embarrassment. I’ve been there… Brush it off, the blush comes from the color, no? Yes! Lovely, Harmony. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, the red blush of embarrassing wardrobe fails.:-) Great poem, Harmony!


This reminds me of a certain Superbowl game here a few years back when Janet Jackson had what they called a ‘wardrobe misfunction’ πŸ˜‰
