My Cheeks were Red with Embarrassment
Have you ever done something that made your face light up in embarrassment, but in hindsight, you laugh yourself silly? How's that saying go - "A picture is worth a thousand words."
Today after work, I decided to go for a jog. It looked like rain so I wore my nylon sweat pants. I plugged my ipod into my ear and zipped out the door.
It turned out to be a beautiful evening... After my run, I realized that I needed a few things at the store. Instead of rushing home to change, I trotted over to the supermarket and grabbed myself a grocery cart and away I went down the aisles. Hey - I felt like a million bucks, especially after running two miles.
Then I saw the cat food on the bottom shelf. I crouched down and took a gander. Let me see - Kitty Chow - that's it.
I reached for the bag, stood up and placed the package in my cart. All seemed well - YA RIGHT! I felt a wee breeze on my legs and when I looked down, I gasped...
My pants were around my ankles.
The elastic waistband lost its desire to hug my waist and went south. What a sight to behold - Susan standing in her underwear! I never moved so fast in my life. I grabbed my drawers, yanked them up and looked to see if anyone was watching.
Phewwwwww - or so I thought!
As I scanned the aisles, I noticed a young man trying to smother his laughter. His eyes looked every-which-way as not to embarrass me any further - until he couldn't resist any longer and let out a loud - Baahahahahahaha!
My feet started to move as I held on tight to my bloomers. I passed the laughing bystander, made a dash for the checkout counter, and bolted through the exit door. I didn't stop until I got home.
As I sit here typing, I wonder if my shopping cart, with the cat food, is still sitting on aisle 4 waiting for my return!
I hope the store camera didn’t catch my act, otherwise, I may be the next shining star on, “America’s Funniest Videos.”
So - what happened to you today?
