Today’s topic in the “30 Things I Want My Son To Know About Me” is, “Describe you most embarrassing moment.”
I have had a lot of embarrassing moments. Although, I do NOT embarrass easily, especially when I was younger. It’s a gift, not getting embarrassed easily. It really is. One I wish I still possessed. I was more care-free and didn’t care what anyone thought of me. I have always been able to laugh at myself.
Don’ t get me wrong, I still have it, it’s just not as strong as it once was. Luckily I still have the ability to laugh at myself. Now that IS a gift.
Okay, for the most embarrassing moment….
When I was around twenty I shared an apartment with a friend of mine and we had several friends over (it wasn’t a party, because we had a bunch of friends at our apartment almost nightly, especially during the summer) one night.
My best friend Robin and her boyfriend at that time (who was also a dear friend of mine) were there and whenever Robin and I were/are together, there is guaranteed laughter.
On this particular night (and by the way, there was no drinking, and was rarely any drinking of alcohol in any apartment I lived in) there were friends scattered out in the living room, kitchen and out on the front porch. We had a porch swing that my friend Robin and her boyfriend were sitting in it. It was a beautiful warm night.
I remember distinctly that I had on a red mini skirt. It wasn’t tight, it kind of flared out. If I were to spin around it would have twirled with me. Does that make sense?
Why am I describing the skirt I was wearing 30 years ago you ask? Ah, trust me, the skirt played a big part in my most embarrassing moment….
I went to the bathroom. A normal mundane thing. I walked out of the bathroom and pranced right through the living room full of people and went out the front door. Where within seconds my friend Robin, started laughing so hard I thought she was going to lose her breath.
She had her head down in the porch swing laughing her butt off. Which is exactly what she was laughing at… my butt.
I had walked out of the bathroom with the back of my skirt stuck in my panties, show my backside for all to see. It was made funnier, I guess, because I was just so prissy. Now, I don’t think I was being prissy, but I think that is the tale that was told about that night.
Oh, I laughed right along with Robin, IT was funny. And truth be told, I really wasn’t that embarrassed, but of all the things I have done that were embarrassing in my life, that one sticks out the most. I am very thankful there wasn’t cell phones back then, though. Now that, would have been embarrassing.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
