You know that dream...

Where you show up somewhere naked? I had a huge embarrassing moment today. We were late for Ella's soccer game - so I didn't have my handy dandy chair to sit in. I am sitting indian style when I feel a hand fiddling on my shoulder. I don't pay it any mind because I think its Benjamin. I few seconds later I see one of the dad's out of the corner of my eye. - the next part happens in a blink of an eye. I turn my head to see what the heck he's doing, as he says "sorry I was just trying to get a spider off of you without scaring you" as simultaneously I see a hairy spider fall into my cleavage!! I FREAK out, jump up, and without a single brain synapse I start clawing at my bra and jiggling my junk to free this flesh eating spider. It isn't until I see a flash of my own nipple (but no spider) that I rejoin society and remember I am in public in front of a very comfy crowd of children and parents (and the opposing team). I return to the ground red faced and slightly psychotic with the spider still MIA. At the end of the game a non suspecting kid says "you have something on your shirt" I go ballistic once again clawing at myself - but more covered this time when I realize its food from Maiya's sticky hands. I left the field at that point, head hung very low.
Meg met me at the door saying "I had the most embarrassing moment today - I totally ate concrete in the parking lot - my bookbag flew about 10 feet away from me as I hit the ground. I definitely heard snickers, and then I was so flustered I couldn't find my car so my walk of shame included weaving in and out of aisles of parked cars." To which I reply (as I flash her) "IS THERE A SPIDER OR SPIDER CARCASS ON ME?"

And was there? A spider, I mean! I am trying to picture your spider dance! This is kind of like when I tripped on the curb and fell at Family Dollar! Scared the poor clerk so bad she called 911! Had a hard time convincing them NOT to put me on a stretcher and take me to the ER! Of course by then there was a group of people standing around. (I made Aaron take me instead!)Just wanted to let you know you & Meg aren't alone in the world of "oops"!!

I won't tell you that I'm trying very hard not to laugh. How embarrassing. Did you ever find the spider?

Janie said...

Nope never found it ... very frustrating.

I half expected you to say you ripped your shirt off right then and there, now that would have been funny, I mean worse. What's a nipple floating around here and there:)

OH my gosh, I would have done the same frantic searching for the spider! And you never found? That is even worse!

But I do wish that I could have seen it! Ehh, eehh.
