March 24th Blog Challenge: Describe your most embarrassing moment?
Well, let’s see….how do you pick just one? You see, I’m a bit of a klutz, so there are so many embarrassing moments in my life that it’s difficult to narrow it down to just one.
The time my dad accidentally squirted ketchup all over me at a baseball game when I was little? Or how about the time I tripped over my own coat tails running up a driveway? Oooh…I know, I can tell you about the time I hit myself in the head with a softball bat at ball practice in high school! No….maybe not. I can’t think of one in particular that stands above the rest, so I’ll just pick any random embarrassing moment….
Picture this: It’s your child’s preschool graduation ceremony. You take a long lunch hour from work to attend. When you arrive at the preschool, your child’s class is lining up in the front of the building in their cute little caps and gowns, getting ready to walk into the auditorium.
It’s so cute that you just can’t miss this priceless photo-op, so you quickly grab your camera and jog through the parking lot towards the class.
When you get to the group of kiddos, your daughter sees you and waves frantically, and you wave back. Then, you tell her to say “cheese”…you squat down to snap a photo….and…
Those $80 J. Crew dress pants that are your absolute favorites? Yep. Split right up the crack….from the center of your crotch to the back waist of your pants.
(Here’s the picture I snapped just as my pants snapped…)
Your back side, in all it’s thonged glory, is now facing the entire parking lot full of parents arriving to see their little preschoolers graduate. Instead of their child’s accomplishments being the highlight of the day, they will now talk about your butt crack shining in the sun.
Yep. It happened to me. As soon as that cool breeze hit my butt, I knew what had happened and was beyond stunned. I stood up as quickly as I could and tried (unsuccessfully) to not draw attention to myself. (Did I mention I was wearing a thong? Yea.) I ran towards my daughter’s preschool teacher with my hand covering my rear end, whispered in her ear what had just happened, and, after stifling a laugh, she very sweetly took me in the classroom and handed me her cardigan to tie around my waist.
Temporary fix, but I made it work. I wasn’t about to miss preschool graduation because of a silly little crack! 🙂

Ok, ok….wipe those tears away from laughing so hard and share your most embarrassing moment with me!
