Most Embarrassing Moment


- my stomach is always making me burp... but I mean burp :/  I'm careful to not burp around people, but sometimes, they just come out... one of those moments... 


This happened many years ago

And the memory is as vivid.

It's the day my twelve-year old's

Friend met me for the first time.


I was alone at home,

The kids out to friends',

So I put on Death Metal

On the sound system,


Also took a shower;

You know, taking time

For me doing my own

Things in a kid-free time.


On that day, it happened

While I hadn't realized

My son and his friend were

Standing on the kitchen doormat.


I came out of the shower, towel on head,

Wearing a long-enough (thankfully!) black

Tank top with a skull print on the front,

And loudly buuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrped


On my way to my bedroom.

The music had enough volume,

But my burp was heard anyway.

This is the point, my son says,


That his friend turned to him,

And asked, "Is that your mom?"

With an air on his face that tried

To not show surprise...


My son has teased me about this -

He still says it was the funniest thing.

I keep thinking what a first impression!

Embarrassing doesn't depict it justly.



* on this day, a few things were unusual :  death metal on the sound system 'cause the kids were out at friends' for sleepovers and I had some alone time, a rare occasion; wearing a skull-print tank top I never wear which I'd quickly grabbed for my shower exit to go get dressed; and burping with people around... I can only imagine what the kid was thinking of this scene... :)
