Wait, Let Me Get My Pants On

Okay, so I need to explain the title of this post, but I have to tell the story from the beginning.

I was sitting at my kitchen table clipping coupons, and I decided to start singing. I was making my boys laugh by belting out "Born Free" at the top of my lungs, opera style. I should tell you that I was doing all of this in my undies (my boys don't care, they're used to it!). Still singing, I heard someone knock at the door. Knowing I wasn't dressed, I panicked for a second and ran to the front door to see who was there.

I looked out and saw my husband's friend's truck. He came to build some shelves in the garage for us. Anywho- I knew he needed the garage door to be opened, so I walked over to the interior garage door and swung it open in preparation to open the outside door. SURPRISE!!!

There he stood. Already inside the garage...on the steps...two feet from me. I almost DIED! I quickly hid behind the door and he covered his eyes. SO EMBARRASSING. Especially since this guy is young, in great shape, and is very much into eating healthy. And there I stood...all 270 pounds of my undies. How attractive.

He just stood there and asked if he could use the bathroom, neither of us knew what to do, it was so awkward. So, after I announced that I needed to get my pants on, in he came.

I don't know what is more embarrassing, being caught in my undies, or knowing that he was standing at my door while I was belting out opera. Needless to say, he didn't make eye contact with me for the rest of the day.

If anything, this occurring and having two people tell me in one day that I have such a pretty face, has only provided some serious fuel for my fire. Burn on!!!

Reminds me of a few weeks ago. I rushed outside to get the recycle bins put out as I could hear the recycle truck nearing. Did I mention that, having lost a lot of weight, my clothes are all getting loose on me? Well, it was only AFTER the guy from the recycle truck had said hello and I'd gone back inside that I realized that my boob had popped out of my top when I leaned over to set the recycle bin down!

So funny, I just Lolled at work.

Oh my!!! :( That is something that you will be able to look back on and laugh about...not sure when that happens! I think I would have died and then laughed, in that order!

Oh, Moonduster!! :)

Oh gosh! We've ALL had those type of moments and they are so embarassing in the moment, but then you can look back at them and laugh :) Thanks for the chuckle this morning....I needed it!

"Such a pretty face." God, I frickin' HATE that. Why does anyone think that is a compliment.

Natalia said...

I've been thinking that whole "you've got such a pretty face..." so, would it be OK if I went up to somebody that was butt ugly and said "such a shame, you have such a nice body,...." then look at their face and shake my head sympathetically? People need a sensor that shocks them right before they say something incredibly stupid and insensitive!

Oh Boy! (snicker) I feel bad for you (snicker, ha ha!). No really (bwah-ha-ha!). Haven't had this happen yet!! BUT - If I had a dollar for every time that I heard that 'But you have such a pretty face" comment, even from my own family, I'd have a villa in Tuscany by now. ARGH!!! Such Bull crap!! I love teaching art history, and helping students understand that our 'ideas of beauty' have changed through time, and that the 'Rubenesque' woman was all the rage in many different moments in history.

Oh boy I guess I better stop walking around half dressed. I would just die. But the story is cute. Yes that is some you will laugh about later. I should also give you some motivation to Lose. Just think in a few months he will forget what you looked like. After he's see's a new you.
