And I'm so nervous!
3 of my friends randomly showed up at my door last night and I didn't have time to tidy up and completely forgot I left my paci on my desk right out in the open.
I swear I made it a million times worse too ahhhh. Because I noticed it on a certain position on my desk and tried to nonchalantly lead them away, but my friend's younger niece went in my room while I was distracted helping another friend (she had a very deep cut and I was helping her with first aid since I had a bunch of supplies left over from my surgery a year earlier). When I went back in I noticed my paci was gone.
Immediately I thought "oh my gosh did her niece take it? Is she planning on showing it to other people?" and nervously without thinking I asked if she took it unintentionally causing a small scene out of panic. What really happened was she picked it up, and put it down on a separate shelf that I didn't see. I felt like such a jerk for accusing her of stealing and heavily apologized.
They all saw it. Nervously and jokingly I said "I like to chew on it... Hey I don't ask what you guys do in your free time" but on the inside I was having a nervous breakdown. The friend I was helping said she didn't care but I'm so worried about the others who didn't say anything gahh! One especially is a bit of a blabber mouth. I am freaking out right now.
What should I do? I don't want to bring it up again and drag it out longer than it needs to but I feel so bad for accusing my friend's niece. Maybe buy her lunch or something as an apology?
