Kathi here. Jim asked me to post today. I didn't have anything in mind, so I told him that. He told me to think back to something funny that happened to me in the past and write about that. Well, pretty much anything that fits that description is also very embarrassing. I know that a few people from church read this, so that let's out another category of funny or embarrassing things that I just can't mention.
So, I'm going with mild. Then I want to hear YOURS!
In 5th grade, we had a talent show at school. I was a pretty decent piano player for a 5th-grader, so that was my talent. It was about 1970 or 1971 (yes, I am that old) and the movie Love Story was popular, so I chose to play the theme from the movie.
I wore my cutest dress. It was a short navy blue sailor dress with a drop waist, and it had a little white collar and a red tie. I still love that dress!
As each of us had our turn, we were to walk onstage, go to the microphone, announce our name and what we were going to do, then go do it! Simple enough.
I walked onstage, went to the microphone, announced my name, and that I was going to play the theme from Love Story, then turned to go do it and tripped right over the microphone cord and fell flat on my face with my butt to the audience.
I wasn't hurt, and as I scrambled up and over to the piano, the audience clapped and yelled. My mom said they were clapping and cheering because I got up. Of course, I know that they were clapping and cheering because they got to see my underwear.
Now, aren't you glad I didn't tell you the story that involves ben-wa balls?!!
Your turn. Tell me YOUR funny or embarrassing story, please!
