Kristen, here , has posted a very embarrassing moment. She has asked us to join her in the revealing of ours as well. It took me awhile to come up with one, because I think I tend to suppress such moments - it's definitely not that I don't have any!
I've had plenty of times when I've fallen (on ice, into a huge hole on campus, off my bike, etc. etc.), and immediately start looking around to see if anyone's watching before I assess my injuries. But this one I had forgotten until my husband reminded me.
Now DC is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful guys in the world. He buys great gifts and plans great surprises. He would never do anything to intentionally hurt or embarrass me. I didn't think, anyway! I really don't think he intended for this to embarrass me. But it did!!
Our church used to always have a Valentine's banquet. We used to go to a restaurant and rent a big room, then began having them catered at church. One of the last "outings" was in a neighboring town. It was a very well attended function this particular year. As everyone sat around long tables and visited, waiting for the dinner to be served, DC brought out a beautifully wrapped package. My Valentine gift! I couldn't figure out quite why he was giving it to me in such a public place - I still can't!
I opened it and immediately turned the color of this very bright red piece of Victoria's-Secret-Worthy lingerie. Yikes! I held it up, BRIEFLY, and crammed it back into the box. I was on the verge of tears. I wish I could find the picture someone took of the occasion, catching the horrified expression on the sweet, very conservative, my-mother's-age woman who was watching me open the gift.
Suffice it to say, I stuffed the box under my chair and began to try very hard to change the subject of the conversation. I suppose it hurt his feelings, but I took it back the following Monday. It was not something I would ever wear. I know he wished I would.
I will settle for flowers and/or chocolates any day!
