A not-so Haughty Spirit before a Ridiculously Embarrassing Fall

If only I'd had spinach in my teeth... that would have been easier to live with.

Last night, I had a few friends over after work. I have people over a couple nights a week, so this wasn't anything out of the ordinary. My apartment is always neat and tidy, and I didn't think anything would be out of place. I rushed home to have dinner with my sister before she left for her final exam, and then I hurried into the shower before the friends arrived. When I got out of the shower and went to put my undies on, I noticed that a relatively new pair had part of the waistband tear away from the fabric. I relegated them to the mending pile (it bothers me when people mend undies that are old--sometimes you need to let things go. But these are new and really cute!). I flew out of the bathroom and was burning some CDs to my hard drive when the first friend arrived. No big deal... I was clothed and ready.

My friends watched a movie with me. People were in and out of the kitchen and bathroom all evening, and nobody mentioned anything to me. I even went into the bathroom at one point to take out my contacts. After they left, I picked up a few things, turned down my bed, and walked into the bathroom. Staring back at me from the floor were a pile of my clothes. Not just any clothes either: I'd somehow managed to get only the most unmentionable clothing on top. I'm not very shy about my clothing--especially when I'm not wearing it--but it's the principle of the matter! Any one of them could have mentioned it to me, and I'd have swooped in to reduce my further embarrassment. Oh, no, not a single one of them said anything. I didn't exactly need my friends seeing two pairs of undies hanging out on the bathroom floor. God knows what they think of me now, oy!

Thanks, guys.

Ohhhhh, that's the story.

And they weren't kidding about the 'blogs-a-lot' comment.

Also, hurray for engineers, your youtube videos feature people I know from class and KEC.

I don't think that they thought much of it- of course without more information regarding the specifics of such unmentionables it's hard to know :p
