I swear your dignity is delivered with the placenta.

Where oh where has my dignity gone? Oh where oh where can it be?

If you have kids, you know exactly what I mean. If you don't, just spend a full day with a parent. When you have kids, you do all sorts of stuff to embarrass yourself. Some things are intentional (pretending stuffed animals are speaking in funny voices, singing insane songs, repeatedly hitting yourself on the head with a piece of cardboard to make your kids smile for portraits). Other things, however, are not.

verb (used with object) cause confusion and shame to; make uncomfortably self-conscious; disconcert; abash: Boy was I embarrassed when I started singing the Go Diego Go theme song and then realized the phone hadn't completely disconnected and so I was actually serenading Cora the banker at Chase!

I have to sing that song to Karma Boy while he "goes potty" and one day I realized his bathroom window was open and the neighbor had yard workers there. They must have thought I was singing to myself. I can't imagine their faces when I got to the "Push it out! Push it out! Push it out~ wwwaaay out!" In a cheerleader kinda way.
