Public Humiliation, Part Infinity

So, you may be wondering, what could be worse than getting called to the front of the class during aerobics? How 'bout finding out at a nice church lady function that some people from your past, with whom you have kind of an iffy relationship due to some mutual acquaintances with whom you have a BAD relationship, have been WATCHING YOU do your dance aerobics from the track above the gym? Stellar.
Also fun: stuffing yourself into a push up bra immediately following nursing, then realizing, a few hours and a few ounces of milk build up later, that your NIPPLES HAVE BURST OUT OF THE BRA and are going berserk under your WHITE SWEATER. AT THE NICE CHURCH LADY FUNCTION.

You people probably think I make this crap up for your benefit, but you would be wrong. I'm just THAT lucky.

OMG. you are too funny. I'm sorry all that happened to you, though I'm glad I got to read about it.

I'm sorry, but that is TOO funny!!! You know, if that woman was watching you from the track, then she saw you doing something well and showing confidence. I think I'd rather her at the gym and the old ladies, who probably have their own nipple horror stories, at the church, than THEM at the gym and HER seeing the milk dud suds! :)

The only thing to do in these occasions is mutter "I can't help it if I'm hot." It will make you feel better, I promise

Mommy Daisy said...

Oh boy! At least it was ladies around. I think they would be less likely to care so much. I think...maybe not. Still embarassing.

The woman watching you from the track is wierd, she needs to find something else to do with her time. The bra mishap, it happens when nursing. I agree a nice lady church function is probably one if the better places for it to happen at. At least it wasn't a work party with your husband.

Oh oh oh oh! I cringe for you. I am also secretly a little glad that I am not the only person who manages to humiliate themselves, rather than having other people do it.

Erin said...

Oh you poor thing. I'm sorry! I love that you can laugh about that though!

Don Mills Diva said...

Is it wrong that I burst out laughing over the nipple story? Sorry - it's just so something I would do! Love your blog BTW!

Tessie said...

For the love of god, if you SEE someone doing aerobics from the track, you don't MENTION IT! Who are these people? Just let us humiliate ourselves in peace!

Jess said...

Oh no! At least you're able to find the humor in your own situations. What a terrible thing for a push-up bra to allow.

Fine For Now said...

That is why I can't work out in front of people. No way. People often gossip when they are jealous, they are just jealous of your hot bod.

LoriD said...

LOL! I could not work out anywhere that random people may be able to spy. If the chuch ladies are really nice, they won't be gossiping about you behind your back. :-)

Saly said...

Well, at least it was a sweater and not, say, a silk blouse.

Okay, so if I start contracting again from laughing so hard because of this post, you're in trouble!

Shelly said...

Hilarious! Rude of the people watching the aerobics to comment, though.

desperate housewife said...

Yeah, it was kind of weird... I haven't seen them in a year, bumped into them, started chatting casually, and then one was like, "We see you every Monday when we walk the track! In that dance class!"

Mairzy said...

The bra ordeal sounds rather uncomfortable. I keep wanting to squeeze my chest protectively just thinking about it. Ugh. Ignore any sounds of laughter in this direction. It's sympathy, really.
