Well That Was Awkward…Ballroom Peep Show!

DAY TWENTY-NINE – Awkward. What makes you squirm, looking back at 2011? Write about a moment in which you were uncomfortable, out of your comfort zone, or caught off-guard. Why was it so awkward?

Let me begin by saying that I can think of many many many awkward moments in 2011, some of which occurred within this past month! However, a lot of these awkward moments are at the expense of embarrassing someone else, and that’s not very nice. So I’ll make fun of myself instead and tell a tale that left me feeling mighty awkward…

As you might have guessed, this occurred at a ballroom competition. Ohio Star Ball, to be exact. We were gearing up for a full day of Latin dances.

I was wearing my hot pink dress, and had my friend Victoria safety pin the back and sides of my bandeau top to the actual dress. However, when I went out to dance the jive with my lovely partner Edd, little did I know that wearing a different strapless bra that day meant that my bandeau top would stay put on the back and sides…but not in the front!

Somewhere in the middle of the jive I felt the whole thing fall down, and surprise! my twins were shaking freely on the ballroom floor.

Luckily for me, the dress was able to cover the goods, so no extreme harm done, but we joked that it helped us get multiple callbacks. 😉

So yes, I’d have to say, dancing the jive almost topless was a pretty awkward moment for yours truly. Let’s hope and pray that’s the last wardrobe malfunction I’ll ever have to deal with, haha.

Hey, watch that hand!!
