I’m thrilled to be featured today as the Newbie showcase on Victoria’s fantastic blog VeViVos. And what better way to introduce myself than to share one of the MOST embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me!
What’s a girl to do when you discover your bikini top floating along in front of you in an adventure pool?!
Gaining ground, in fact.
Because you’re so busy grasping your newly discovered exposed flesh that you can’t even swim.
Panic, supersedes embarrassment.
Mother nature turned me into a tadpole!
Just trying to keep my head above the surface.
And now what?
How on earth are you supposed to get it on again?
The difficulty staying afloat whilst clutching your breasts and chasing a bikini top around an adventure pool
doesn’t even compare to the difficulty staying afloat whilst relocating said bikini top, whilst still clutching your breasts, whilst still being thrust around an adventure pool.
The frozen moments when somebody propels them-self alongside me.
Desperate attempts to look normal and avoid unnecessary attention.
Right about to whip it over my head.
When an over conscientious lifeguard actually leant into the pool ahead of me to ask if I was stuck in there!!!
Are you kidding me?!
There’s no time for a diplomatic, ’thank you so much for asking… Please GO AWAY!’
HE (of course it was a he) was about to grab me out!
A hasty ’No, no!
(not convincing enough…
Huge smile on my face) …TOTALLY OK!’
And I passed him.
Only to have to wait for the next batch of passerby’s actually get by.
I HAD to get out of there.
Next half quiet moment.
And the boobs were free.
Quick as a flash over my head.
Then another lap or so of keeping it in position whilst trying to undo the knots to get it back around my back.
If they’d have served tea by that pool, I’d have been straight over.
…Because if there’s one think we Brits know how to do, it’s how to cope with shock!
