This week brings us to Question #4 of Carrie's Get-Away Give-Away. She asks, "Have you had a funny/embarrassing moment happen where you thought
to yourself, "If only someone caught that on camera, I'd win the $10,000 prize"? What is your cash prize-worthy moment?
I can't really think of any prize-worthy embarassing moments I've experienced, probably because I've succesfully managed to block these humiliating memories. However there was an event that occurred a couple years ago that left me plenty red-faced. My friend Kenny Lee has for many years referred to me as "Sister Josie Oblivious" for my uncanny ability to dwell in my own little world and remain totally unaware of what is going on around me. This was once such incidence of that blissful state.
Papa Bear and I were out shopping in a local department store, a nice one as opposed to your typical "big-box" affair. I went to use the restroom and found it in poor condition with trash and toilet paper scattered everywhere. (Why do women do that anyway? Calling it a "Ladies" Room is truly stretching the truth!) Obviously the maintenance crew had not made an appearance for some time.
After using the facilities and washing my hands, I went to rejoin Papa Bear, noting a few people along the way looking at me rather strangely, but that's not an unusual experience for me, I think I give off "crazy lady" vibes or something, who knows. :-)
Arriving at Papa Bear's side in the linens aisle, he took one look at me, shook his head trying not to laugh, and pointed downward. There, trailing for at least three feet from the bottom of my sandal was a lovely train of toilet tissue. UGH! How embarrassing! I quickly used my other foot to detach the offending toilet paper from my shoe, and beat a hasty retreat to the car, Papa Bear hustling to keep up with me and trying hard not to laugh out loud. I could almost hear the other customers telling their friends about the "pitiful old woman in the store who couldn't quite get out of the restroom in good form. :-/ Ah yes, Sister Wendy Oblivious, take a well-deserved bow!
