Let's hear it! Tell me your most horrendously embarrassing moment!
I'll start. I was at my first concert ever - Diana Ross. I was 15, had on very high heels and a skirt and top. (I know, I know - a skirt? At a concert?
At one point in her shows, she breaks into "Muscles", and the men in the audience start ripping their shirts off. She lets some of them onto the stage, and it's a grope-fest for her.
Anyway, I was at the top of one of the levels with some guy, and we had been dancing and having a great time. When she started "Muscles", he wanted to get onstage, so we started down the stairs.
I should have taken off my shoes.
I slipped, and took an entire flight - on my butt!
He came running down, picked me up and asked if I was alright. As I stood up and pulled my skirt back down (it had gone up around my waist...), I tried to be cool about it and said "Sure - I'm totally fine!" So he wanted to continue on down the next flight. One of my shoes had flown off into the orchestra pit, but I figured I'd just get it when we got to the bottom, which was much sooner than I would have liked.
He put his arm around me, and we began our descent.
I should have taken off my other shoe.
I slipped again, pulling him with me. We went down the next flight in a big jumble, arms and legs everywhere. Oh, yeah. It was kind of hard to walk that off, too - I broke my tailbone!
I was sufficiently humiliated, and spent the rest of the concert in pain. And I never got my shoe back!
So what's your
most embarrassing moment?
