I’ve had several embarrassing moments throughout my life. Probably more than I care to remember from middle school and high school. What teen doesn’t have embarrassing moments? But, since I can’t remember specifics, they obviously didn’t scar me too badly! Thankfully for me, my most embarrassing moment did not happen as a teen.
Slightly Embarrassing Moment
When my husband and I went on our first date, we went to see the Bone Collector movie. We were early for the movie so we decided to sit at a restaurant called Champps. There was just one problem…at that time (I don’t know if they still do this), but after a certain time, you have to be 21 to get in. I was only 18. It was our first date and my age was already and issue (he was 22)! Rather than go somewhere else, my husband had to talk the bouncer into letting me in if I promised to have water. <–So embarrassing!
My Most Embarrassing Moment
But…this was not my most embarrassing moment. My most embarrassing moment happened 7 years ago. Bella was just a baby and in her crib; Zachary was downstairs watching Tom & Jerry on T.V. I had lost some baby weight so I thought I would try on a dress that I wanted to get back into. It fit, but didn’t look perfect so I got the great idea to try it on with Spanx. As I was pulling the Spanx on, I wiggled a little too much and the next thing I know, I’m on the ground in tremendous pain. My kneecap dislocated! It was the most horrific thing I had ever seen or felt. Bella was crying in her crib. I had no choice but to push my kneecap in myself. Talk about painful.
So where’s the embarrassing part? I’m getting to it! I had to scoot on my butt, down the stairs to the phone. I called my mom and my husband and my husband told me to call an ambulance and my mom told me she was on her way to my house. The paramedics get there (who were VERY good looking, by the way) and I had to tell them why my bare butt was hanging out of a pair of Spanx and how I dislocated my kneecap. You could tell one guy was trying not to laugh!
