Funny Story

So this weekend the weirdos and I are heading to New Orleans.

Jody has invited us to go and visit his family. I’m excited, I’ve never been outside of Texas before. I haven’t even traveled explored the rest of Texas. I’ve been to Austin, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Mission, McAllen, and a few other small towns. But I haven’t been anywhere really, my family and I never really went on vacations.  I’m finally packed, I think I have everything I need. I’m not bringing my lappy because where we’re staying won’t have wifi, plus my laptop should be traveling.   But before I go, I wanted to share a funny story with you. I don’t want to gross anyone out so if talking about feminine products disgusts you then stop reading now. Ok so I carry extra pads with me for those just in case moments. Because we all know that mother nature loves to screw with us. Well anyway, I had put on in the zipper compartment of my bag. Its one of those Always thin pads, anyway so I kept it unzipped because I had kept my cell in that compartment. Well I head in to the bathroom and start checking my bag and its vanished. I must have dropped it somewhere on campus, of course you would think that I would have noticed but obviously not. This moment made me think of another time this has happened to me. I can laugh about it now, but the 11 yr old me would cringe to think I’m sharing this story with other people. So when I was 11, according to biology or science, I had become a woman. I, the same as now, carried extra pads with me. Only I carried like five extra pads with me. A bit much but hey I didn’t know how many to carry with me.  Well I must have forgotten to zip the front pocket of my backpack because all of these pads had fallen out all over the assembly area.  Luckily there were only a few people, all of them girls and all of them “friends”, and they started making fun of me. Now these pads weren’t diapers. They were tiny pads, I was 11 for goodness sake. I can laugh at it now, but at the time I was really embarrassed. So I just ran off. The next morning I get to school and notice the pads I had left were being kicked around by some boys. Most of my peers avoided them but one boy had picked one up to throw away ,holding it between his index and thumb as if it were used. I was mortified because it was all anyone had talked about all day. About the pads that littered the assembly area. Now that I’m an adult I can laugh but I can imagine the current 22 yr me dropping a pad in front of someone but they were probably too embarrassed to say, “Hey you dropped your pad.” XD

Just one of those moments that might have been a bit embarrassing but since I was so unobservant it didn’t phase me. 😀

So have you been to New Orleans? If so what are some places I should check out?

    UGH, embarrassing “pad incidents” are the worst! We all have them, am I right? Mine happened in the middle of class when I was about 13. My teacher (who was female, thank goodness) was pacing up and down between desks, checking on each of us as we did our assignment. She stopped at my desk and whispered (Kristen, is this yours?), and she pointed to a pad on the floor next to my desk. I could feel my face getting hot, I was so embarrassed! I didn’t know how long it had been there, or who had noticed it. The boy that I liked at the time happened to be sitting behind me and over a few desks, so it would have been in plain view for him. What’s worse, it wasn’t one that comes folded in a wrapper. It was one of those “lightdays” ones that come in a box, as-is. So it was VERY CLEAR what it was. I still cringe when I think about it!

    @Kristen, Awww no. Your teacher should have just picked it up without making a scene. That’s what I wish my so called “friends” did instead. But I guess situations like these are just embarrassing.

    @Mija, Yeah. I can laugh about it now. But at the time 11 yr me was so embarrassed. But it could have been much worse. It could have happened in the morning in front of the entire student body. >.< Thankfully it didn't.

    Whoa…embarrassing! I don’t think your friends should have laughed at you, though, even if you were only 11 at the time.

    @Robin, These particular “friends” were 8th graders, so they had to be 13 or 14 at the time. Which makes them look even worse. I was so embarrassed and they didn’t help but I can laugh about it now and it made for an interesting post. lol

    I know this isn’t related to your post but I have to say, yours is one of the fanciest blogsites ever!
    Did you design your page?
    So nice, clean, and pretty!

    @Genesis, Awww thanks. I’m in love with the layout as well. And no I didn’t design it, my wonderful sister Mija did. She’s a graphic designer and was nice enough to make me one. She also designed a similar layout for our younger sister’s blog as well. Found here:

    Thanks for commenting and reading. 😀

    Oh man…I was 10 or 11 too when I started my period, and I swear to hell that I thought I was dying when it first happened. We hadn’t even had sex ed yet, so I had no clue what was happening to me. I started running around the house and yelling, and when my mother started laughing I was like “what the hell?!”

    Since we’re sharing embarrassing stories… xDD
