Prompt #3: Write a post inspired by the word: bra

When I saw this prompt, a bra story from the tales of my youthful indiscretions immediately came to mind. It was, at the time, my most embarrassing moment.

Being alone together with my long term boyfriend back in my early 20s was a challenge as we both lived with our parents after we graduated college. If my boyfriend had some money we would find a cheap motel, if not we would find a deserted dark place and fool around in the car.

My God, this is embarrassing to even write!

Anyway, we were messing around in my ’94 Ford Probe. My boyfriend had helped me out of my bra. Caught up in the moment I tossed it in the back seat and somehow I forgot about it. I guess I went home bra-less and it was too late for my parents to be awake and notice.

A few weeks later I took my car in for a full service car wash. I waited at the other end as half a dozen guys dried and vacuumed my car. When they told me it was ready, I noticed big smiles on their faces.

I went to get in to my car and there, in the back seat, laid out all nice and pretty, was my bra.

I was absolutely mortified.

It took me quite a while to go back to that car wash again!

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

  1. Although this could easily have happened to me on a back country road in Ohio, I’m pretty sure it never did. Thank goodness. I was driving my dad’s car at the time. Imagine how embarrassing that would be!

  2. I would never, never, never, ever be able to go back to that car wash.

    hahaha, that’s hilarious!
    I would’ve just asked them for a pen, autographed it, and told them they could hang it on their wall 😉

    I can sympathize. I, however, had a mother who ALWAYS waited for me to get home to do the “post-date inspection”. One night I walked in the door with a big smile on my face, nothing wrong, everything was copacetic, I thought – except for one little oversight – my sweater was on inside out! My mother, to her credit, didn’t lose it. She looked at me calmly and said, “You went out on a date with your sweater inside out?”, BUSTED!!

  5. OMG – that is hilarious. Moritfying yes, but I suppose that’s what makes it so funny. I don’t think I would have ever gone back to that car wash. You are indeed one brave lady!
