One of the most embarrassing moments of my life….

One day, many, many years ago, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I went to Eaton’s Department store to buy a new dress. I was busily browsing around and didn’t notice the sign above a certain rack of dresses.
I chose a dress that I thought would suit me, when suddenly a saleslady approached me and asked, “When was I expecting?”

To my surprise, I had chosen a Maternity Dress! You can imagine how I felt. I shall never forget this moment as long as I live.

Needless to say, I did not buy the dress!
