Well since we are tossing in personal stories here is mine, it's funny now, but at the time it was the most embarrassing moment of my life.
Years ago we had my in-laws over from out of town. Now these people are good, by the book, Christian people, really prim and proper, and never
walked on the wild side.
Christmas time setting about 5 years ago, warm fire, egg-nog in hand, everyone is getting into family conversation, there was about 15 of us total, we
are all sitting in the living room.
Out of nowhere our 2 year old comes out of mommy and daddy’s bedroom, with 2 pink objects in his hands, one in the left and one in the right. He
was giggling, laughing and making them wiggle away. Now, at that moment I could see a distressed look appearing, on their faces, but I had my back to
my son, so I couldn't see a damn thing.
As he passed me by I could see the objects, out of the corner of my eye, but it was too late to intercept. Everything after that was in
My son scurried to the center of the room grasping everyone’s undying attention, as he spiked both of mommy’s intimate pink play toys into center
of our conversation. As they hit the ground they danced and bounced a bit.
His mother nearly passed out. Now by this point you think no more harm can be done, Wrong! our little one said, “buzz hmmm buzz buzz mommy”
Looks up at her and waits for her approval.
Without saying a word I quickly scooped up both toys and made them disappear back into our room. I had tears running down both sides of my face from
holding back the laughter, in our bedroom. I gained composer, then returned to the living room.
As I returned I was ready for someone to say something, but I looked around, and felt the awkward tension as the conversation went a different route.
Everyone pretended it didn't even happen. For me it would have been a great laugh and conversation piece, but no one said a thing.
I almost said, "so honey are you going to have another one of those “Girl's Toys Parties” or what?", but I held my tongue.
Later that night I told his mother, it’s probably best if you put those things a lot higher up now. And we both busted out into a tearful
I still today laugh my butt off about the situation thinking, WTF was going through their minds.
