I Lost An Article Of ClothingI was wearing this purple two piece bikini, the bottoms tied on each side with what I now call "shoe strings". This was an Independence Day (July 4th) celebration. We had a cook out, went swimming, and did some exploring the nature trails. The park was packed, there were so many people there that if we hadn't gone early, we would not have gotten a shelter. This was an outing with my great grandma and some relatives from my mothers side of the family, I am so glad my mother wasn't there. I was spending the summer with my great grand ma, and also spent time with my aunt, she was a wild card, so we always had fun. On this particular day, we decided not to take much else besides a few towels, all of the vehicles were loaded down with the items for the cook out and chairs, just things we knew we would need. Some one (wasn't me) forgot to pick up the small duffel bag with our extra clothing, such as shirts and shorts that we would need to change into so we wouldn't get the seats wet.
The day had went so well up until around 6;00pm that evening. We got bored, and my cousins, (most I only got to see during the time that they came in from other states) and me decided to goof off on the play ground. Every one was waiting until dark to watch the spectacular shoe of fire works. We goofed off on the swings, monkey bars, and the thing (I can't remember what it was called) that would go around and around, it would make you dizzy and a little nauseous, (I always got nausea from this). We used to dare one another to see who could stay on longer without getting sick, I guess you figured it out, I never won that one, lol, Eventually, boredom set in again, so someone got the bright idea that we should go own the slide. I thought we were too old, but participated anyway, We were a group that cherished our time together because we didn't often get the chance to hang out and associate. There was about 12 of us, at the time. Each person kept taking turns to slide down the tall slide, and finally it was yet again my turn. I was so tired and decided this was the last time I would slide. I really wish I would have decided that on the last turn, then maybe i wouldn't have been so embarrassed by what happened next. i down I went, and when I reached the ground with my feet, I felt a cool breeze where there should not have been one, right across my back side. I was standing there with my T-shirt on over the bikini top, but the bottoms had caught on a screw that was sticking out a little to much, and they were hanging from the slide. I WAS MORTIFIED! My cousin, thank God for Gregory, had brought an extra pair of shorts. But we had to make it back to the car and it was quite a distance. My cousin took his shirt off, so I could slide my legs through the arm holes and cover my @$$ until we could get the shorts. (Go ahead, I know someone is cracking up!) Since that day, I only wore whole piece bathing suits, My bikini days were over.i think that was the most embarrassed I have ever been in public!!!
