Lucy Award
...for those of us who end up in hilarious situations despite our intentions... i have an award for you, my bloggie friends. anyone can play. all you have to do is copy Lucy and write a blog entry of one of your "Lucy" moments. cuz i KNOW we have all had one. or two...

I'll start.....

as i have mentioned before in a prior post, i took my 4 kiddos camping when they were little. on this particular weekend, we had our usual campfire dinner, walk, roasting of marshmallows, then hunkered down for the night in our lil pup tent that was made to sleep 2 adults. somehow, the 5 of us fit in comfy cozy. we all fell fast asleep. towards morning, i awoke suddenly only to find we were in water... it was pouring rain outside and our lil tent had begun to fill with rainwater... we were actually floating down the hill we had pitched our tent on! the kids and i had to hurry & scurry to collect our belongings, get in the car and head for home. but not without all of us slippin and slidin in the mud. we all fell numerous times trying to get heavy wet blankets etc into the car. OMG it was just a fiasco....! we were all covered in mud from head to toe, and home was about an hour away. we finally got loaded up. i was driving on the interstate when i got a very did i say VERY pressing urge to go potty.... #2 that is. yeah. it was miles before a gas station, and i just couldn't wait.... so i pulled off the interstate, told the kids to stay put, and embarrassingly squatted next to the car in the pouring rain... suddenly there was a light. a flashlight. well, i who was taking a crap by the side of the car thought it was just one of my kids playing around with their flashlight. we all had one. so above the thunder and lightening noises, i screamed "put that flashlight away NOW! to which i then heard a deep male voice who asked me what i was doing. i looked up covered in mud, from my squatting position, only to gaze into a state trooper's astonished look as he realized i was taking a crap! he put his flashlight away, asked if i needed anything, to which i stupidly, reluctantly replied "toilet paper....." as in my haste i forgot to grab some. at that point i felt so sick i didn't care if he saw my bits or not.... i just wanted to be done and go home. Mr. Trooper knocked on the window of the car to find my 3 younger kids crying. they were quite the sight with dried mud all over them. my oldest son Nicholas handed him some napkins which he in turn gave to me... i was SO embarrassed i just wanted him to leave. cars were whizzing by. i felt like i was also gonna hurl... there was a state trooper literally on my ass, and i couldn't stop poopin. ...eventually i do cuz I'm writing this blog now... he remained behind me with his flashlight so i could see what i was doing. what a gentleman.
after explaining everything to Mr. Trooper, he laughed and let us go after i was safely back in the car. he didn't even charge me for littering. (the napkins). i can only imagine the stories he must have told to his buddies.

I am sure that was awful at the time but very funny now. Thanks for sharing. I needed a giggle.

i have one too, but like suz said, i don't know if i cant tell mine, it is of a sexual nature and kind of embarrASSing, not like yours, tatoone, of a different kind. but still, i may have to word it very carefully, my HUSBAND reads mine, and it wasn't with him i was with....geez, and i dont think LUCY would of reported this moment on her show!!! OMG!! (unless it was the late, late lucy show!) JO go read mine!

Funny, funny, funny. Thanks for the laugh... I might have somewhat similiar stories...either the time I was peeing in the bushes next to a river in some scant bushes. The bushes hid me from the other small boats that were in the river, but then out of the corner of my eye I caught a huge cruise type ship coming along. Pretty sure that all in the pilot's house and on certain decks got an eyeful of big white ass that day.
What can I say? I really didn't want to "pee in the pool."
Or the time one of my dogs got diarrhea in a rental mini-van alongside a major highway on TOP of my other dog and I had essentially nothing with which to clean it up. I was laughing so hard about it that I was crying...at least no law was involved...
