neighbor saw my breast

  1. I'm mortified (is that how you spell it?) and I'm sure my neighbor is horrified! This morning, planning to just spend the day around the house, I just threw on an old t'shirt and some sweats. Wellll, the kids wanted to go big deal. We were going in the backyard, so I just threw on my coat and out we went. My neighbor was working on his pool as I was swinging the kids. He struck up a conversation about his neighbor on the other side..about how he was tired of listening to his band practice (another gripe..another time). Anyhow, I couldn't hear him across the yard, so I walked over to the fence. We had our chat..and I noticed he suddenly seemed rushed to get back to his work..but thought little of it. A short time later, I noticed his 16yr old son and wife looking over my way smiling..I just waved and smiled back..still thinking nothing. I did, around that same time, get a bit chilled (I had removed my coat not long after we got outside as it was pretty warm), so I put my coat back on.

    Wellllll, just now, I went to the bathroom to bathe my kids..and suddenly caught a side profile of myself in the mirror. I have this HUGE hole in my shirt extending from under my armpit..a HUGE hole. Uh, in the mirror..I could see my breast..a side view, but a HUGE portion of my breast. Now, keep in mind..this is not like a sneak peek of a stripper...
    this is like..ummm, looking at the arse of that rhino someone posted the other day..just turned I am not a small woman.

    I just know..right they sit at the supper table..they are discussing the horrifying events of the breast being the topic of discussion.
    I must burn this shirt...tonight. Sorry to post such a disgustful thought..I just..
    well, this is my 12-step post!

    you probably gave your neighbor a thrill.... don't beat yourself up over it .... It happens and it really is pretty insignificant when you think about all the other stuff that happens..... just laugh and move on !!!! flasher!!!!

    Or the big stuff whatever the case may be.

    OMG!!:chuckle What is the old saying, "You may not be able to laugh now, but you will later". I know it is not funny to you now. However, I can honestly say from past experiences of embarassment (that I will not dive into at this juncture), you WILL laugh about it later! I am sure they were all just jealous and wishing they were as "gifted" as you and could show it off!

    You GO GIRL! (Make note to self to check clothing in all areas before wearing)

    Seriously, I am sure they were just as embarrassed as you and would like to quickly forget it. Also, as far as I am concerned, it isn't a full breast without the nipple....

    Take care and keep on smiling!

    I once opened the door for my landlady (ya know, back when I rented) and my pants were undone! Carried on a 5 minute conversation and shut the door before I realized it!

    My boyfriend at the time had just left and I had gone in to take a shower and there was a knock at the door. Figured the man had forgot something.....threw up a towel and whipped open the door ..... for the Jehovah Witness crew!! They didn't stay long.
