Today's prompt is all about 'sharing an embarrassing story', but here's the thing - I don't really get embarrassed (easily). I've shared some of my clumsy stories before, and I just don't have THAT much shame about any of them. I'm going to share a few little things that have happened recently that I probably SHOULD be embarrassed about (but I'm not), and then I'll share a repeat story from the blog (but hey, it's from like a year and a half ago and none of you have probably even heard it... so HA).
Anyway, here are a couple incidents that have happened recently that were not too lovely, but I can laugh at them (a lot):
One day, I was on my way home from work (by bus) - I took bus #1, got off at the necessary stop and I was walking to stop #2 to catch the other bus that would take me home. As I was casually walking towards the second bus stop, I heard something behind me and turned just in time to see the bus coming towards me. I panicked and started to run.. because heaven forbid I should actually wait 10 minutes for the next bus.. no no, I needed to catch that bus NOW (in hindsight, this just makes me laugh).
I didn't have far to run, honestly. I only had to cross a main intersection (Broadway and Granville... it's pretty busy) and run about 3/4 of a block to the stop. I started running, casually, in the direction of the stop. The bus hasn't stopped yet, so I figured that if I ran at a steady pace, I'd make it in time. I had my purse slung over my shoulder, and a bag or two in my hands, and I was on my way to catching the bus that would take me home after a long day at the office.
As I was running across the intersection, I noticed that my pants were feeling a tad loose... too loose for my liking. I shrugged it off and kept running. By the time I got to the other side of the intersection, I could tell that my pants had completely fallen down my butt. I kept running (a little faster at this point) despite the fact that my butt was now showing to the public, because like I said - the thought of waiting for another bus was just a big no no. As I was running, my pants kept falling further and further down. I'm not kidding when I say that my pants were around my knees by the time I got to the bus. I would say at least 100 people saw me running down the street virtually pantless. I quickly threw my bags on the ground, pulled my pants up, scooped everything up into my arms and boarded the bus. For the record, everyone on the bus (including the bus driver) had seen this whole thing take place and they all had a little smirk on their faces when I paid my fare and took my seat.
But, like I said guys, no shame here...
