I'm Embarrased

Day 10 of this Blogging Everyday in May Challenge and we have officially reach my most least favorite question ever!  No joke, I hate this question.  What s your most embarrassing moment(s)?

 The problem is I embarrass myself on the reg so I never remember anything.  I also try to let embarrassing moments turn funny and good so that I remember them that way!  Usually it is my mouth that embarrasses me the most.  I always seem to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.  That stupid thing is always getting me in trouble!

Probably one of the most embarrassing things I have done though wasn't because of my mouth.  It was my dang feet!  It happened at camp about 2 years ago as I was the Girls Camp Director.

See it was a crazy morning in the office and I was trying to help out even though I really had somewhere else I was suppose to be.  In the midst of all the craziness I had two of my girls upset and no idea why.  One only spoke French so I was needing to find someone to translate for me so that I could make sure the girl was ok.

So I ran outside to find someone.  And well that darn porch was not my friend.  I stepped off and completely rolled my left ankle.  And I am pretty sure some expletives came out of my mouth.  That thing hurt like no one's business.

My campers and everyone around immediately could tell I was hurt since I was sitting on my ass crying.  I tell them to go get the camp nurse/doctor/paramedic.  And who do they come back with? The camp mom who claimed to be a doctor who only spoke Spanish.

I was not so nice when I told them to go get someone else because I was not about to try to translate this one!  So finally the nurse and paramedic come.  I could tell the paramedic was concerned I had broken my ankle because in the matter of 2 minutes since it had happened it was so swollen.

It was determined that I had to go to the hospital to get an X-Ray.  So my brother and sister took me.  Fortunately for me it was just an extremely bad sprain.  I was put on crutches for 2 weeks and had a golf cart to drive me around.

If it wasn't embarrassing enough that I sprained my ankle and cursed in front of my campers, when I finally was able to walk some I had to dray my foot.  The guys thought this was hysterical and would make fun of me for walking like that!

I was just thrilled that I was off the crutches and walking again!  I know my story is not that bad but like I said I don't remember a lot because I just look back and laugh and love it all!

I embarrass myself daily, too. It took me quite a while to come up with my stories!

That swollen ankle looks painful! Makes me cringe just thinking about it.

Your poor ankle! My mouth ALWAYS gets the best of me. I can't seem to control it...
