To celebrate #13k I decided another thread where we learn more about each other might be fun. I also decided one where we can laugh a little bit would be nice. You get to laugh at me first. What is your most embarrassing moment? Mine... I was a skinny 16 year old kid and a lady in my home town died. I had worked for her husband for a while so they asked me to be a pallbearer. I had never done that before. This woman weighed over 300 pounds. They put me left handed at the head of the casket and I was struggling. On top of that they had us wearing gloves which made it slippery. Around the grave was some astroturf and the frame you set the casket on to be lowered into the grave. The frame was sitting on some 2 x 4's that I couldn't see under the astroturf. I also didn't see the pallbearers in front of me step up over the 2 x 4's. My left foot tripped on the board and I went right under the casket and into the grave. I was hanging onto the bottom of the casket over the gaping hole. I said, "not me God, the lady in the box." The other five pallbearers now had my weight added to hers and my joke nearly caused them to drop it right on my head. They did their level best to not laugh. The Catholic Priest Father Thomas was snickering while saying the prayer to bless the grave. Me, I was trying to get out of the pit and untangled from the straps on the crane that lowers the casket. So, I finally get out and we set the casket down. I was frantically cleaning the dirt off my pants. Then I noticed that the other pallbearers all removed their gloves and placed them on the casket. So I did the same. There were 5 beautiful, pristine white gloves and one very brown pair. Funeral over we got back in the Limo that brought us to the cemetary from the Church. Father Thomas got in with us even though he had ridden to the cemetary in the hearse. As soon as the door closed the 6 of them all lost it. I thought they were going to have accidents. I was so embarrassed. Father Thomas, who was a very funny man BTW, put his arm around me and begged me to never become a Catholic so that he wouldn't have to see me at Mass and try to keep a straight face. It's funny now, but when it happened I was mortified.
