Embarrassing Moment Challenge
I am challenging every one of you to share your most embarrassing road trip moment with the rest of us. I’ll start.
With apologies to all the men out there, my most embarrassing road trip moment took place in the ladies’ room. I was three hours away from my destination when I got my period suddenly (thank you, Menopause!). Not wanting to bleed on the seat of my new car, I raced into the nearest McDonald’s and ran directly to the ladies’ room. I was alone. I disrobed from the waist down and began to scrub out my clothes in the sink.
Enter a mom holding the hand of a little girl, with me in full view, naked from the waist down. I shrieked: “I’m not a weirdo! I got my period and I’m washing out the blood!” The mom calmly replied: “It’s happened to all of us,” and blithely walked herself and her little girl to the stalls.
The only thing more embarrassing would have been using the men’s room by mistake.
