Yesterday I stumbled over a post where somebody described her misfortunes as a scatty person. That made me think of three misfortunes which happened to me, the last one this year probably because I am very scatty too.
Long time ago, we were invited to a Cocktail with a lot of very posh people in a very elegant place. I remember I wore a beautiful dress with flower patterns, it was out of muslin with lots of flounces and at calflength.
I was very proud of my dress and stalked around like a peacock amongst the guests. Then unfortunately I had to go to the restroom and when I came back I was even more proud because everybody starred at me and my beautiful dress. That's what at least I thought. In reality my dress was stuck in my briefs at the back and I peacocked around showing what usually is hidden. People smiled and some laughed until a good soul told me why I draw so many attention to my persona. What should I do ? I pulled the dress out and laughed and it became really funny and more cool . Of course long time after that people still remembered my "performance".
One day I was a little late and very much in a hurry, because I had an appointment with a client and my boss in his office. I arrived ponctually in the garage and when I got out of the car I noticed with horror, that I still had my dark blue felt slippers on ! I couldn't return home, that would take too long and the two men were waiting for me, because I had to translate from French into English. First thing I did when I opened the door, I showed them my feet and told them what happened. They both laughed and me too and then we could start with the business discussion. I really looked very elegant in a beige suit with a short skirt (it was the mini skirt time) and my rather old felt slippers.
The last "adventure" of this kind I had not long ago in January. It was very cold and I wore always leggings under my jeans. I had to do some shopping so off I went and when I arrived on the parking I discovered that I had forgotten my jeans ! I was there in my black leggings and a winter jacket ! Fortunately nobody had seen me, because I looked very comical. I quickly returned home, put on my jeans and went shopping !
