An embarrassing moment....

Yum
I don't how I get myself into things like this... I think it is Kat's fault from Just a Beach Kat

As an elementary principal there are so many things that can happen that I try to find ways to help me in whatever moment I might find myself in. For example, I love to wear skirts, but sitting on the floor with the kids gets downright ugly in a pencil skirt. So I started wearing the more full peasant type skirts which are quite comfy and sorta in style.

So, ONE of my embarrassing moments comes when I sit down with a kindergarten class to listen to the morning message. I tuck my skirt around my backside and slide down to the floor. After a couple of moments, I felt a small tickle on my leg, so I brushed my hand across it. Again, I felt the tickle but it was more intense. I kinda knocked my hand on my leg, trying not to distract the students from their teacher. Then I felt something grab me! I frantically slapped and slapped and slapped at my leg. Pretty soon I hear this tiny voice say, Mrs. Steffes, stop hitting me! WAAAA!

It seems that a little boy was putting his hand up my skirt to rub my leg. I found out later he does that to his mom and his teacher. It was totally embarrassing to explain to the mom why I was beating up on her little boy!

Another moment involves the same skirt... my skirt inadvertently got tucked into my granny panties and I guess I walked down a hallway like that for a while...

  1. Too funny, Terri! I haven't answered Kat's double dog dare, yet.

    Everytime I hear double dog dare, it makes me think of A Christmas Story and that poor kid sticking his tongue to the flag pole!

  2. Love your story Terri! Too funny!

    And when you said "my skirt inadvertently got tucked into my granny panties" I almost spit out my diet coke.

    Thanks for taking the dare.

    Hugs!

  3. Omigosh! What a fun story. Thanks for sharing, even if it was embarrassing. It is true that some little ones find it comforting to tuck their little hands here or there...;>

    Visiting from Leah's today. I really think it's time to add your blog to my blogroll, if you don't mind. We keep running into one another and have a number of mutual blogging buds. I'd love to get rid of that one degree of separation.
