So the embarassment factor goes up when you have kids, like the day Caitlyn told a new friend she was feeling violent. Yeah, she was repeating me. What she left out was I was trying to convince hubby to buy me a punching bag for my birthday.
I was so embarassed.
But that does not compare to when I went on a mission trip to Mexico as a teen. It was one of the few times in my life I owned a two piece bathing suit. Because of the co-ed nature of the trip, I had to wear a t-shirt over the bikini top. But a friend wanted to see to top too, so I lifted up my shirt. Unbeknownst to me my top had come undone and was around my waist. Yup, I flashed a guy on the trip. I was sick with embarassment, but as I thought about it today, turns out he came out of the closet shortly after high school, so… was it really embarassing?
Better try again.
I traveled as a missionary after college. It was a music group. I was the interpreter for the Deaf. So I moved a lot during the concerts. Well one night we finished, so I went back to the music table to do my other job, sell CDs. I didn’t have a chance to grab the money bag before people came up. I sold a few, they gave me cash. Our leader called us up for another song. I stuffed the money in my bra. Ran up front. Started signing. Again, moving a lot. As I moved, money came up and out, down and out of my dress. The drummer almost died laughing, “it was like a slot machine! The more she moved her arms, the more money came out!!!!”
Writing it now, it’s funny, at the time I was mortified.
When have you been embarassed?
