My Most Embarrassing Moment



My most embarrassing moment…..well one of them!

"Bill and I had decided to move into his parents’ home in Villa North.  So that meant selling our home on E. Arnold St.  One Fridayafternoon, right after I had showered and dressed, but still upstairs, the front doorbell rang.  I hurried downstairs and it was the real estate agent and a prospective buyer to see the house.  Of course they want to see the upstairs as well, and there, in all its glory, spread all over the bedroom floor are my socks, underpants, and bra! Oh Me!  Let’s just say it gave the house that “lived in look!”  I don’t recall if they ended up being the buyer or not!"
