I don't want to do this alone, so I'm dragging everyone in this house to write one. Oh - and I tag Shando too.
Ok, so I have some issues with my body. I like to swim, but I don't like lounging in public in swimwear. Having said that, we were vacationing in a far away state and decided to spend the day at a water park with our kids. I decided that for one day, I would relax and just enjoy the day. We were far away from home, I didn't know anyone, there was no reason to feel self conscious.
I am at the top of a slide and some 10 year old boys are talking. I saw that some people were going down the slide sitting up, and some people were laying back. I got these boys to recommend which way I should go down the slide because I wanted to go down slow. They started kidding me that if I laid back I would go slower. I could clearly see that was not the case so I was teasing them back and saying I would clearly have to do the opposite of their advice. We were kidding back and forth for some time until it was my turn to go down the slide. So I went first, my kids were next in line watching me, the whole group of boys were watching and the 16 year old with a whistle life guard at the top and the bottom of the slide were watching. This was not a sign-a-waiver, death-defying type of slide. It was just a medium type slide with a little bumpity bump in the middle for a thrill. Apparently the the little bump, I got off balance, tipped backwards, hit the back of my head on the slide and sloshed into the trough at the bottom unconscious. There was soon a whole group gathered, directed by the little teen-aged life guards. They had to call around the park on the loud speaker looking for Dave etc etc. Quite an attention getter.
Looking back now, I probably should have had some real medical attention instead of being cared for by the minimum wage first aid girl. I was feeling quite loopy and my sense of time and space was off for several hours. The kids thought it was great because they got a premium picnic spot and free pizza and sodas.
OK - Here's Melanie:
Okay. So my first time to the temple was a fantastic experience... Soo, the young women were in the chapel waiting area, right?? okay, so here's the thing, it was last year by the way. So when we were waiting, I had to do what any human has to do. I had to pee... so as you know it was the temple, and there is lots of elderly people helping out. So I asked to leave and went out to the facilities with two of my friends. When I came back into the room where everyone was sitting and waiting, some of my other friends started to laugh when I went by them. So I looked at them, but we had to be quiet. I asked them why they were laughing. Thankfully, I was standing in a corner because they told me to look at the back of my skirt. My skirt has two layers, the outer layer is see-through and the under layer is not. The one that is not see through got stuck in my undies as I came back from the bathroom. So picture this - all of the people I walked by probably saw my legs and my colorful undies. . . . . . :DDD
