pay it forward tag

I've been seeing these around for a few weeks and finally won one, so now's my chance. I wanted to mix it up a bit though to keep it interesting.

Here's a fun blogging game...

Be one of the first three people to leave a comment on this post and you'll receive something handmade from me sometime in the next year.

But there is a catch. You have to do the same thing on your blog. And then once you get the item from me you have to comment about it on my blog!!



So my change on this is that the winners must be people I know/email/talk to or is a follower of my blog. You can't be some random stranger. Now, commenters will likely not know who I know, so even if there are 3 comments, please still enter. Your entry into this is your most embarassing moment. I have many that I personally could choose from, including:

The time I walked in on a HS boys' PE locker room during shower time. The story actually makes perfect sense, but goes down as a very embarassing moment indeed.

Or when I accidentally spilled the beans about a surprise baby shower to the recipient. Duh. I have a very hard time keeping secrets.

Or when I interpreted something incorrectly at work several years ago (I used to work as a sign language interpreter for a school district in the valley) and most nearly got the kid in big trouble. I realized my mistake and corrected it, (and it turned out pretty funny) but yeah...I almost got the poor kid expelled. *nervous laughter*

Or just yesterday when I totally biffed it at my crossfit work out and landed on my butt in the middle of about a dozen people. It wasn't even during the workout; it was afterwards, in the kitchen. On the hard tile. Sigh.

I could go on and on, but I won't. I want to hear your embarassing moments! Please still comment, even if the token 3 winners have already said their piece. This could be really fun for us all. ;)

One of my many most embarrassing moments is when I was at Lagoon (an amusement park in Utah). I came out of the locker room and handed the boys off to Matt. I told him I'd hurry and go back to fix my hair. I was in such a hurry I ran into the men's locker room. I was several steps in when I realized my mistake. I was so embarrassed I wheeled around and bumped into someone and quickly said, "Excuse me!" really loud. Later my father-in-law came out and asked if that was me in the boys locker room. He said he told the guy next to him when he saw me in there that I was his daughter-in-law trying to peak at him. He still teases me once in awhile about it.

When I forgot the words to the National Anthem in front of every high school wrestler in the state. I ran out crying. I didn't go to class the rest of the day. I just laid in theater room couch bawling. It was horrible!

My most recent one is: I was in my credit union and asked if they were in a flood zone. Never mind that they are on a hill.

I had noticed the bar on the wall that starts at 5 foot and measures out every foot to 7.

When she looked at me, completely confused, I realized that the bar is so they can tell the police how tall the thief is.

Duh.

Probably waking up to some friends of mine having sex. I couldn't beleive it I had to lay still and keep eyes closed and wanted to scream its' like hello I'm right here on the floor which part of that didn't you see.. OMG I was just embarassed couldn't wait to get up and out of there. Finally I coughed so they would stop and I had my head under coveres I guess thats why they thought they had the free ticket

During one of our college choir tours, I walked into the front of the room of 80+ people with my robe tucked into the back of my nylons. We didn't wear anything underneath our robes except undergarments and nylons!

Thank goodness I was wearing cute panties!!

Aww, I'm too late, but I did want to ask you about your cross fit workout. What kind of equipment does your friend have? My husband might start looking for a new place to do his workout since he can't do it on Luke AFB anymore.

I may be too late for this and even if I wasn't, I don't have a blog but I'll play anyway.

My most embarrassing moment was when my hubby and I first moved into our apartment and our neighbors called the police because we were being too 'rowdy' and they thought someone was getting hurt! *shock* The police banged on our door and made me come out so that they could see I was ok. How do you explain that one?!?! I'm just glad we live in a house now :)

In the sweet words of "ma-Golden Girls"... "PICTURE THIS!"... back when I was a wee cheerleader it was customary for us girls to pick one of the players and run out and do a cartwheel or jump {something spectacular} when they called his name. I chose my brother.. boy was I proud. My Mom was in the audience cheering us both on. They call his name... I proceed to the center of the floor and instead of a spectacular act of grace.. I kicked it up like a true ass.. and I dont mean that in a *dirty word* way either. A true stubborn jackass. I was sooo embarrassed. Everyone was laughing, but my eyes were set on my Momma.. and she clapped and cheered for me anyway! heehe :)

Thanks for the laughs! Mine involves an embarrassing Mom moment. When Mikaela was just very little, there was a lady checking out in front of us and she said very loudly, "mom, how come we don't have those neat coupons?" The lady was checking out with the old paper food stamps. Everyone behind us heard as well and the ladies face got sooo red. I wanted to crawl in a hole, I was so embarrased.

OK Aime you talked me into this. When the boys were about 4 & 5 we went to the County Fair in Pomona. I knew they would like to see all the animals -- like pigs, horses, etc... Well, there was this horse in a pen and he was hanging low if you know what I mean. My older son asked what that was -- I looked around and there were men surrounding me and this man says "Tell him Mom". I was so red that I whispered in his ear what it was and my younger son shouts "I want to know too!!!!" It was awful. My sons thought about what I said and one of them burst out saying, "I don't want to grow that much Mommy." We immediately left while the men were laughing hysterically.

I don't have a blog, but I did share.
