All tucked in

I've been watching for something fun or funny to blog about. Not much going on lately. Well today I finally have something funny to tell everyone. Not that it's really something I'm proud of or even really want to admit I did, but here goes.

You know how you see little kids come out of the the bathroom with their dress tucked in their panties? Well that was me today after a funeral in my ward. The family and most of the congregation had exited the Chapel, I walked to the front to move some flowers to the gym. A lady in my ward was right behind me when I started to turn around and she was about to hyperventilate. She said "your skirt is tucked in your pantie hose or something". I could have slithered right out the door. She looked even more humiliated than I felt, I mean she was bright red. Instead of slithering like I wanted to, I laughed and made some lame comment, adjusted myself, and went on about my business. You have to realize I have a hard time laughing at myself, but I tried really hard, I'm trying even harder not to be REALLY BUGGED by the whole thing. I would guess there were only a small number of people who saw, because they were going the opposite direction I was, but wasn't one enough????

I came home and told Rick, thinking he'd never let me live it down, do you wonder about my sanity in telling him in the first place. Well, all he said was "that's better than toilet tissue hanging out of your pants". He had told me about a lady who had just come out of the restroom at Albertsons, where he works. She was wearing sweats and a sweat shirt, and trailing behind her was a string of toilet tissue hanging out of her sweats. What in the heck would you do? I'm sure he was rolling on the ground laughing his head off, not about to approach her and end her embarrassment.

I'm going to start watching other people really, really closely and blog about THEIR misfortunes not my own. Have a great weekend and be sure to look in the mirror at your butt before you exit the restroom.

I thought you were going to say that you were watching people to tell them quickly about their misfortunes. But you're just going to blog about it! We bloggers are all alike:)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who shows off my butt by accident every now and then. I only wish I had a camera on Saturday! We could make a R.S. scrapbook or put the pic on the ward bulletin or something! I love it!

I wonder if it is AGE related!! I too had a recent skirt in the pantyhose experience!!! I came out of the bathroom and was heading of to teach a Sunday School class. (Senior age kids) when Trisha Culler stopped me and told me the embarrassing news. I couldn't believe it...I'm usually very careful about that sort of thing! I was glad she told me before I went into that class. I'm not sure any of them would have told me and I could have taught the whole lesson with a breeze blowing through! I too wonder how many witnesses there were before someone told me!!
