This morning I had a doctor's appointment… everything went well. Doctor wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic to (hopefully) kill this never-ending sinus infection. So, post-appointment I drop the prescription off at Publix and decided to kill the 20 minutes devouring a Cinnamon Crunch bagel at Panera.
With my husband in tow we head to Panera. Let me preface this story by telling you that we've been having gale force winds this week.
Got out of the car at Panera, headed towards the front door… when all of the sudden out of nowhere, a massive gust of wind took the bottom of my cute little black fluttery skirt all the way up around my neck.
I fumbled around for what seemed like 20 minutes trying to grab the edges of the skirt… couldn't find them… they were flapping in the wind so fast I could not get my hands on them. So, plan B I dropped my purse, hoping it would grab my skirt on its way down and help me out.
My purse falls in the open position and everything within it went everywhere.
I still had my skirt up around my neck.
I likely screamed again.
I finally got a hold of my waistband and yanked it down.
Yes. Not only did my skirt come up in the wind.
But then I managed to pull it off in an effort to solve the problem.
Chance was walking ahead of me (I'm sure because he was racing to get the door for his pregnant wife), when he finally turned around there I stood in the parking lot with my purse on the ground, all of its contents all over the place and me standing there with my skirt half way between my waist and my knees.
He said "what are you doing!?"
I was mortified. I did a 360 to see if anyone was watching. Then laughing, blushing, and sort of wanting to cry I walked into Panera.
I dang sure needed that Cinnamon Crunch bagel now more than ever.
A man was peeking out of his booth… laughing hysterically. Hey gave me a wink and mouthed "oops!" my way. I guess "oops" is better than a thumbs up? I'm not sure.
No one else would look my way.
I was wearing the panties that last time Chance saw me in asked: "Does Mimi know you stole her underpants?" Mimi is my grandmother.
