I've recently seen a couple of news stories about and seen one interview with a woman whose embarrassing moment was caught on tape and has become very popular on YouTube. She was walking through a mall while texting on her phone, oblivious to her surroundings. She tripped over the edge of a fountain and fell face first into the water. Not very fun if you are her, but hard not to chuckle a little about since she wasn't really hurt. In the interview I saw she was distraught and angry, near to tears, about being the subject of so much public laughter.
I can sympathize with her (a little) since I recently had my own very embarrassing moment. I was rushing in trying not to be late for my grandson's school program. I stopped by the bathroom and then rushed into the auditorium to find a seat with my daughter. As I ran across the front of the room and scooted into the row, my daughter, her husband, her mother-in-law and the woman in the row in front all broke into laughter as my daughter grabbed the long stream of toilet paper hanging from the waist of my pants. I was gracious enough to laugh with them until the show started and they finally had to
shut up stop laughing.
I guess I can only be grateful that my embarrassing moment didn't get caught on tape and end up on YouTube. It was, however, a school program and there were plenty of video cameras there, so if you see my toilet paper adorned backside on YouTube just
shut up know I am laughing with you.
