well that was embarrassing.
as far as mortifying moments go, i have them quite often.
words and phrases normally come out of my mouth different than what i intend and i end up feeling foolish. sometimes i am a clutz and other times, well, who knows what i do to make myself blush.
i couldn't really think of a whole lot that would be worthy of writing about, but everyone loves watching someone fall down, right?
well once, maybe 5 years ago, i was walking into a store. it was a cold january day, the snow was just beginning to melt, and it was an ugly, cold day. i had my hands in my pocket because the door was somewhat of a distance, which i found out isn't a good thing to do when the pathway is messy. someway, somehow i lost my footing as i was stepping over a puddle. a large, icy, dirty water puddle.
since my hands were in my pocket, i had no way of balancing myself and completely fell into said puddle, landing on my shoulder and half of my face submerged in the water. talk about fun. i can't even remember if i looked around to see who was watching because i could not believe what had just happened.
my mom was still by the car talking to a friend so i had to walk back to her and explain what was going on. obviously she was dying laughing but still wanted to shop. that meant that i had to wait in the car, take off my soaking wet clothes and sit in my bra & underwear, with gloves on my feet.
such a happy, proud moment that was.
