Friday Funnies - Most Embarrassing Moment

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, enormous and quite powerful wave came up behind 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, 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!

  1. Ms. Kathy, I thought it was funny enough about the wave sneaking up on you and visualizing your hair around your face! But then, you come with the hilarious part about your top being out of place!

    WHOA! Thanks for being brave enough to "face that wave" again by sharing your story!!!


  2. Oh my friend. It was even funny reading it today! LOL
    Love you!

  3. Hey Kathy! I feel like I "know" you a little from Kim's blog. It has been so fun to see pictures of your beautiful friendship. I just dropped by to thank you for your sweet comment today. It's nice to know others understand too. I will be praying for you too. Blessings!

  4. LOL..I knew you were going to say something like that!!

    Oh my gosh..those boys!

    That happened to me before, in my teens, but I had a bathing suit on! It IS the most embarassing thing to happen because you feel like you just came out of the washing machine! LOL..when it happened to me, I ended up on my knees in the shallow part. My best friend was looking at me like I was crazy!!!!! Hahahahha!

  5. Oh yikes. The waves are so strong. That was always my big fear but now I'm a tankini wearing girl so hopefully nothing makes an appearance. I'm glad you can laugh about it now.
