Oh! last night at last the anxiety and jitters and weird dreams departed…what a relief! I’ve been bouncing off the walls – here at home, in bloggersville, et cetera. Humph. I finally took a deep breath and put things back into perspective.
I was looking at a Redbook magazine last night and I always love the “Red in the Face, embarrassing moments” section. I’ve had too many embarrassing moments to count, but one recent one immediately came to mind.
Before I went to Oregon this past summer, I bought a few pair of those “boy cut” undies. They really are comfy. There was one pair that was so cute, and I didn’t wear them until on the trip home…underneath a skirt…no stockings (I hate stockings, and it was summer anyway!).
So, I get on the plane no problem. I sit on the plane no problem. But, when it’s time to get off the plane and walk the loonnnnngg walk in Dallas to change planes – erk – oops, the dang undies start to slide down….! OMG! I try to walk fast to find the ladies room, but that makes it worse – they slide lower, lower – and I just know I’m going to have undies around my ankles any second. So, I start walking this weird duckyish walk- trying to hold my upper thighs together, while still walking at a brisk pace…people are beginning to stare. I’m trying to WILL the undies to stay up. The undies have a mind of their own -they are snickering and think they really are quite halarious. I try to pretend I’m fixing my skirt and attempt to grab the undies in some kind of way – nope, undies slide and slip and dodge – crafty ole undies!
I can’t remember such a long walk to a bathroom…and I barely made it — those undies were dangerously low on my hips…when I reached the ladies room, they were slipping down my thighs – I ran into the stall and “rigged” them by, um, er, wedging them in best I could *laugh* — Imagine thongless thongs *shudder*
I don’t know which was worse – the thought of having to step out of my undies in the crowded Dallas airport, or the stupid ducky walk I had to do to keep the undies from doing that…haw!
What’s your embarrassing moment?
(and don’t forget to guess the number of jelly beans in the jellybean jar!)
