Well, I've had so many embarrassing moments in my life that it's hard to choose which one to share, lol. I am a self proclaimed, extremely graceful clumsy gal...not sure how those things mix so well with me, but they just seem to!
Today I'll share a story that dates back 18 years...
I was a young Mom, in my early 20's and I went to visit my sister at the beach in Maryland with my 2 year old son. Well, as I said this was a LONG time ago, I was in my "bikini" stage of life, :). I grew up on a border town and at that time lived in San Antonio, I wasn't a "beach" girl and VERY unfamiliar with the power of waves.
I decided to head into the water and enjoy some fun in the waves while my sweet little boy sat on the beach blanket with his uncle. As I stood there in knee deep water facing THE SHORE, waving and smiling at my precious little son,...an enormous and quite powerful wave came up behind me...next thing I knew I was rolling around in a whirlwind of water, sand and shells, my hair tangled around my face and I was trying to frantically figure out which way was up.
I finally stood up, facing toward the open waters. I was completely disoriented, my long hair now filled with sand and shells and wrapped around my head and face. I was just in that moment of trying to sort out what had happened when I noticed three teenage boys standing about 8 feet in front of me with smug looks on their faces,...one of them laughingly said "I bet you're pretty embarrassed, huh?"...that was the moment that I realized my bikini top was COMPLETELY out of place, not covering ANYTHING that should be covered....YUP...I was embarrassed. I yanked and tugged things back into place and headed toward my beach blanket with my tail between my legs.
Learned a lesson that day...don't turn your back on a wave!
