I meant to put this on my last post, but I completely forgot. It is just too funny not to share!
The Sunday we were in San Diego we all got dressed up and ready for church. I had brought my favorite skirt to wear. I've had it since the end of high school (but it still looks in style) and it doesn't wrinkle so it was perfect to bring. It is a flirty little skirt, knee-length, red, and has ties around the waist - one on each hip.
Our little family sat in the middle of a big bench between Brenda's family (my sister) and TJ's family (my brother). That was our first mistake - sitting in the middle with our young kids. While the sacrament was being passed, Andrew started getting really loud. Dennis quietly got up and stood in the very back behind the over-flow seats. Then, as the water came Emma got really upset because I wouldn't let her take her own cup. When I do let her take it, she always spills it or spills all the other cups around it too. So, as she began her "Emma-tude" I ditched Sarah and started scooting along past TJ's family. As I got just a couple steps into the aisle I felt something at my ankles. I looked down.... and my skirt had completely fallen down! While we had been sitting, Emma accidently untied my skirt, but I had forgot about it. Yes, I did have a slip on thankfully! I glanced back at Dennis with the most horror-stricken face and grabbed my skirt with my free hand. By the time I'd walked the five or six steps out the door to the foyer I had tears streaming down my face. Dennis met me and was trying to help me feel better, but I was crying because I was laughing so hard. He kept telling me, "Just be glad that this isn't our home ward!" Needless to say, I didn't go back to my seat during the meeting.
After church, we piled out of our rental car back at the beach house. Well... what do you know? It happened again! Right there on the street as I was about to cross with tons of cars passing by. I don't know if that is my favorite skirt anymore or not!
Each of my family members had something different to say about the incident. TJ's family didn't even notice. Brenda's husband said he heard people behind him laughing, and he glanced back to see what was so funny. And, Scott and Brice's family were sitting in front of 4 missionaries who just happened to be sitting in the bench next to me when I lost my skirt. I guess they were laughing quite a bit too. I think that was more than Elder's are supposed to see, don't you?
So, now that I've shared a humiliating experience.... what is your most embarrassing moment?
