recently posted one of her most embarrassing moments. Reading it, and the replies, I figured I would too. lol
Isn’t it amazing what embarrassed us as kids?
I was very sensitive and remember feeling embarrassment for others more than myself,one of the reasons I never appreciated the show, I Love Lucy, but, here goes…
OK, when I was in high school, I was a timer and stats keeper for the boys track team, it was me and another girl, Ann, (she was beautiful, and had beautiful sisters that dated Seattle Seahawks) so, I got to meet lots of cute boys, and a perk, we got to travel with the boys team to every place they had meets. lol One trip we went to LaGrande, Oregon, and after the meet, we went to dinner at an all you can eat place.
Well about half way home, I started to feel very sick, and had stomach cramps, (not something you want to tell a coach or a bus full of guys) I tried to keep things down and in, as long as I could. Finally I went up and whispered to the bus driver my dire straights, and luckily we weren’t too far from a rest stop.
The embarrassing part, getting off the bus, ALONE, and having everyone know that I was the reason we had to stop. The guys teased me about it for a long time, BUT the next time we went to LaGrande, instead of eating at that place we went to a really good burger joint, and I wasn’t teased anymore because they liked burgers better. LOL
OH crap, I wasn’t teased any more until the end of the year that is. The guys gave Ann and I roses, at a track ceremony and it was brought up that the food choices had improved since I became a "cinder maid", sheesh I had forgotten all about that part.
One of my favorite embarrassing moments that I was part of but not embarrassed by… A couple of years ago I was working as a personal trainer (totally NOT me), I really enjoyed the people and the girl I worked with, Rhonda. She had the best sense of humor and we spent days laughing when we worked together.
One afternoon the phone rang, she was busy I got it. I said, "Hello, Gem Athletic Club, this is"…. and I heard heavy breathing on the other end.
You know the pervy kind, along with some moans and "Oh yeah baby", well I started laughing, and the heavy breathing stopped… it was silent for a few seconds, and then I hear… "ummmmm this isn’t Rhonda, is it?"
I started laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. I couldn’t even stop laughing long enough to tell Rhonda her hubby was on the phone. I just handed it to her laughing. Needless to say he was embarrassed, well he was at first, after that if he called and I answered he would still heavy breath for me, and I would know it was her hubby calling for her.
Rhonda is doing sub work for the school system now, so I see her a lot. I always tell her to pass along my love to her hubby and the fact that I miss his heavy breathing, he sends back his love and a promise that one of these days when he’s not so busy…. LOL
lmao ahhh the memories! BIG HUGS, Steph (OK, so what’s your embarrassing moment?)
