Day 10, Saturday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.
I'm sure my mom embarrassed myself many times but I can't think of any juicy ones. But I do remember this one that stands out in my head right now. I was in the 4th grade... it was Halloween! And every since I was a baby my mom made our costumes. They were always great costumes, which is what a little kid would think! I had no idea what I wanted to be that year. I was starting to get older and cared what other people thought of me. I had three best friends, all named Stephanie, it was pretty great. This was a time before cell phones and texting, so I couldn't call and ask what they were going to be for Halloween.
My mom and I decided I would be a ballerina! I thought that was a great idea! My mom made a great little tutu for me and bought a bright pink leotard a ribbon for my hair and covered my shoes in pink satin-type material.
Well, I was apparently wearing a very revealing outfit and I was too young to realize. But everyone laughed at my outfit. After a while I actually felt naked.... And then the teacher asked who wanted to be in the costume contest, my friends said I should go, but I was like "HELL NO!" One of my friends was an indian, the other was a maid and the other one was a hippie! I have a picture somewhere.
And then school was almost out and everyone gathered at the grassy area and we saw a magic show. Well, during the magic show my mom showed up and started taking pictures and then, it gets better, the magician asks me to stand up!! OMG! NO!!! Yes! So there I was standing up infront of the whole school and everyone could see right up my tutu and my little mosquito bites! Yes, I had mosquito bites! He had me catch an imaginary bird!
Afterwards my mom took more pictures of me with my friends. I had really long legs and I was pretty thin, so that combination just made me feel so self-conscious. I will never forget it.
