I don't normally participate in this because I think I've pretty much blocked anything awkward or humiliating from my mind. But I did just remember one that is for the books.
It was right before my sophomore year in high school. My dad's side of the family had their very first family reunion at Lake Tahoe. There were many family members there that I had never met, including my dad's twin cousins and their families.
One of the days we were there, the Tahoe families took us all out on a boat around the lake.
So, here we were out on the lake. It's hot. We're feeling adventurous. Most of us kids decided to jump off the boat and swim to shore since we weren't that far. Once we got there, we just sat among some large rocks in the shallow water.
Wet rocks are slippery.
While moving around I somehow slipped and when I sat up, my sister was totally shocked and laughed at me.
Did I mention I was wearing a bikini?
Did I mention there were about four or five tween boys there, along with my sister and another girl cousin?
Yes, there were.
And guess what I saw when I looked down?
When I fell, my top had slipped out of place. So when I sat up, my boob was starring them all in the face.
I don't know who was more embarrassed. Them. Or me.
Lots of snickering ensued.
If that wasn't bad enough, quite a few years later, some of the Tahoe family came to WA for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. One of the tween boys wasn't a tween any longer but now about 21'ish. He didn't want to hang out with the "mature" crowd for the evening, after the celebration was over. So my sister, her BF (at the time, now her husband), Kyle and I decided to take him to a club in Seattle. Of course, my sister had to bring up the swim suit incident to him and he remembered it very clearly. Thanks Dawn! Mortified again!
