Embarrassing Moments Swimming part 3


(I always think Embarrassing is spelled wrong!)

So on to moment number 3! For all you boy readers...this isn't your kinda post. You have been warned.

So the first year I started swimming competitively, I started being visited by Aunt Flow. I think it's bad enough being a girl with Aunt Flow around but to have to deal with it everyday in the water with your crushes around is down right horrible!!

So I'm sure you girls know where this story is going but it must be told. I was told by my mother how tampons work. I had the picture from the box in hand and did what was needed. I go out to the pool deck and my friend at the time says " Your string is showing." Thank goodness no one else saw so I ran back into the locker room and tucked in said string and walked back out!

I'm doing my thing, putting on my swim cap and goggles, getting ready to get in the pool. I do one last wedgie check, (sliding the two index finger on the hem of your swim around your bum) before jumping in the pool. WELL...

The wedgie check was not such a good idea. My finger got caught on the said string, from above, and popped right out of my suit on to the pool deck!!!

Not only was I totally embarrassed, all the boys were totally grossed out. (These are boys ranging from 8-18 years old.) I'm sure I traumatized at least 5 of them!

Any way, my cool self tried to blow it off, picking it up and walking over to the trash can and throwing it away. It would have worked too if the lifeguard didn't come running over and yelling at everyone to not step where it was. He blocked off the WHOLE swim deck around the area and had to clean it with special stuff. Everybody had to get out of the pool because the special stuff could contaminate the water!
Needless to say, I spent the rest of practice in the locker room. And I don't think I went to practice the next day either!

Now how's that for drama? Can you top that?

That was worse than Jill's shooting out of her like a missle! Oh my gosh, that was funny! I would have just kicked it in the water, like I didn't know where it came from.
