In Which I Embarrass Myself…

…even further.

Badass Geek is having a contest and I am prepared to do what it takes in order to win.

The inspiration for his contest:
The Klondike Bar commercials; as in what would you do for a Klondike Bar?

The prize:
A limited edition ‘Badass Geek’ pin.

The challenge:
Post the “funniest/most awkward or embarrassing/creative/awe-inspiring examples of "What Would You Do?"

“What Would I Do” to win a pin? Well I guess I’ll admit my most embarrassing moment. (Which makes me wonder what I’d do for a million dollars!) This story has only been heard by one person, and one person only, my BFF. It meets four of the five criteria listed above. It is funny now; it was awkward when it happened and it is possibly the most embarrassing moment of my life. After you read this, it will inspire you…I’ll tell you how at the end.

Here goes.

Quite a few years ago when I was dating someone after my divorce, he arrived early to pick me up for a date. I wasn’t ready so I asked him to wait while I took a quick shower and got dressed. I had started the water for my shower but didn’t get in right away. After hearing the water running I guess he thought he would sneak in and surprise me. This wouldn’t have been a big deal because he had already seen me naked, except…Except?

(Oh boy, I better win a damn pin for what I’m about to admit.)

Except I was sitting on the toilet…and I wasn’t just tinkling. Yeah, right in the middle of taking a shit I heard him start to open the door. Panicking, I sprung off that toilet and rushed the door, except…EXCEPT I was in the middle of taking a shit! My shoulder hit the door and the shit? Well it didn’t hit the fan; it hit the floor.

See? Em-bare-ass-ing.

The things one will do for a Klondike Bar Badass Geek pin. I, to this day, do not know if he saw ‘it’. I mean it’s not like I was going to say, “Where are we going to eat, honey? And by the way, did you see me shit on the floor?”

Now after reading this I’m sure you’ll admit that I should win one of those pins. In fact if anyone else has a pin for their blog they should send me one as well!

Oh and the inspiration from this story; Lock the friggin’ bathroom door!

I don't have a pin, but if I did, you'd so get one. Or ten. I can't even imagine, I'd be so mortified.

Shit I can't believe you put that out there. I have been holding that little bit of info in the back of my head forever. No blackmailing you with this now!!! If you don't win this you have to let me know what the Front door did.
