Hello, my name is Awkward

Warning: I just want to apologize ahead of time to my male readers (i.e. my Dad, Step-Dad and Father-in-Law...), this post may be a tad bit on the racy side. Ok, maybe not racy...but I'm just warning you to read on at your own risk.

So, I pulled my groin muscle about a month ago (and no, that is not the racy part), and I had my first physical therapy appointment this morning. I was a little nervous because I've never gone to a PT before. I had to ask my much-more-athletic friend from work "What do I even wear to something like this? Can I just wear my suit since I have interviews afterwards?" After she laughed in my face, my friend told me to simply wear work out clothes. 

Well, this morning, I was rushing around to get to my appointment on time and realized that my laundry had been piling up and I had no clean underwear. Nothing. Ok, well, there was one pair. I found it at the bottom of my drawer...A red, lacy, racy thong. 

I thought to myself "Well, it's just physical therapy, it's not like they're going to see my undies." 

So, I slipped em' on and headed out the door. (After I put some pants on, of course). 

I arrived to my appointment and was called into a room. The PT asked me several questions and did some stretches. She then told me that it was time to add heat to my "injured area" and I would need to take my pants off in order to put on the heat patches. 

Crap. 

I thought to myself "Maybe she won't notice". 

So, I pulled down my pants about halfway, and snuck a peak just to see how bad it was. And there, staring up at both of us, was my BRIGHT RED SEXY thong. You couldn't avoid it. It was screaming for attention. The PT briefly glanced down and immediately looked away. 

It was one of those moments like when you're in a locker room at the gym and the old lady approaches you butt-naked and asks you something like, "Well, tell me about your summer dear..." And you have to force yourself not to look at her awkward, yet staring-you-right-in-the-face naked body.

Oh, and to make matters worse, my bare butt cheeks kept sticking to the white tissue paper on the medical table. (Sigh). 

All I can say is thank the good Lord it was a woman doctor...

Oh my gosh! How embarrassing! I would have been so red the entire time! Thanks for sharing this story, I just got home from work and needed a laugh:p But those are some pretty nice panties, I've never been brave enough to wear anything red down there...Giggles...Maybe I should try it sometime! BTW, thanks for the comment on my page:)

This is too funny! I know what you mean, going on doctor visits where you unexpectedly have to take your clothing off is AWKWARD! Usually I just refuse to (unless I really need it of course). At least you'll be prepared for next time!

I got a good laugh out of that one! That is so funny! I'm sorry it was embarrassing, but as an RN, let me tell you that it's not really awkward for us, even if we do get a little giggle out of it :-)

LauraAnn said...

Oh my goodness! That is too funny! Doesn't it always seem to work that way....you do something that you assume won't be a big deal and then it turns out to be a big deal.

Like you said, at least you had a female PT!

Ashley said...

Yes, be very glad you had a female or else that glance would no doubt have last longer. Hehe!

kendrasue said...

That is extremely embarassing but at least you weren't wearing granny panties!

Piper Jacquelyn said...
