Where do I start?
This is one of those questions that people get asked all the time and so I should keep track of mine somewhere so I can just answer when needed, but unfortunately I have so many that I have forgotten most of them!
And then there are those moments that I wouldn't ever write about or tell anyone. I have many of those too! haha
But the one that sticks out the most in my mind is when I was at the Olive Garden and went to use the restroom. I walked in and did my thing and as I came out of my stall, I saw a man walk in. He looked at me a little odd. I kind of smirked and thought to myself, "Oh man, is he ever going to be embarrassed when he realizes he is in the wrong bathroom!". I walked out where there was a huge crowd sitting and waiting for a table. They were all quite friendly and smiling at me which I thought it was odd. But I just smiled back and went back to my table. A little later one of my family members asked me to go with her to the restroom, (why is it women hate to go alone to the restroom?) and so I joined her back to the ladies room. As we turned the corner, I started to go in the same door that I had gone in earlier on my previous visit and she started to go in another. I laughed and told her that she was going in the wrong one. She immediately said that "I" was the one going in the wrong one. I stopped and looked at the sign on the side of the door and sure enough, I was heading back into the men's room! I had been in the men's room the entire time! No wonder all those people were smiling at me! And I thought they were just being friendly! They were all laughing because they witnessed me go in and out of the men's room! I started to scream as we walked in to the ladies room telling her what I had done earlier. I was so embarrassed! But, it hasn't been a once in a lifetime occurrence. It has happened several times since. But luckily NOW when it happens, I at least notice these things↓ and do a quick about face! Albeit with a red face!
Now I know why women go in pairs or groups to the ladies room. It's to keep the ones like me out of the men's room!
When I was attending Weber State, I was walking down some outside stairs on my way to a class and suddenly tripped going down the stairs. Wouldn't have been so bad except #1 I was in a dress, and #2 a hot guy witnessed the entire thing and ran over to see if I was okay. I jumped up and pretended nothing happened. The only thing I injured was my ego. Big time.
Another time I had an embarrassing moment when I was performing was when I was the majorette at WSU and also twirling on the rifle team. During a football halftime performance I did a routine with the rifle team and then it was time for my majorette number. I had my majorette costume on underneath my rifle uniform but due to time constraints I had to remove my rifle uniform (it was a white blouse with a vest and a longer skirt) right there on the edge of the field in front of the audience. I tried to be very indiscreet and quick as possible, but I was getting all kinds of whistles and cat calls etc. I was so embarrassed! Maybe I should of just hammed it up!
I added this photo because you can barely see my purple costume underneath my white shirt. I am on the far left.
I had to go from that ↑ to this ↓ in a few seconds in front of a crowd of thousands.
Oh my goodness, there are SO MANY more...where do I stop? I will stop here for now before I get in too deep! For some reason the ones that happened a long time ago stick out in my mind better than the current ones. I think now at this stage in my life when embarrassing things happen to me, I just put them aside in my brain so they will disappear and I won't have to remember them! That seems to work well for me! heehee
