Theme Thursday: Whoops!

One day, a little over a year ago I wanted to attend the funeral of a man who had been a neighbour and attended the same church as me. He was a quiet man and despite him being around for my whole life I wouldn't say that I knew him well.....
Anyway, on this particular day I was babysitting my niece who was about 18 months old at the time. I took her to the funeral with me and we did well for a while but then she got crotchety. I patted, I cuddled, I offered food but eventually I decided to retreat to the foyer of the church where the crotchetiness continued. The men from the funeral parlour waited in the foyer for the service to finish and watched me as I tried to pacify this cranky wee girl. I picked her up, she wanted down. I put her down, she wanted up. I rummaged in my bag looking for treasures to amuse a small child. I picked her up, I put her down. I pointed at objects and people. I counted cars. I picked her up, I put her down. And on it went.
Little did I realise that as I performed this mini workout my carefully chosen culottes were working themselves loose. They slipped down, further down, and further still until just as they probably were about to drop off I noticed this wardrobe malfunction. I wonder if the funeral assistants had noticed a good four inches of funereal black knicker on full display !
ps: don't forget the competition


  1. Hi Kylie... nice knickers :)

  2. Hi Kylie,

    Don't ya just hate it when that happens? For me, when the necktie gets too uncomfortable, anything goes for relief.Hate formal dress.

    Best wishes,


  3. I would be flattered if this happened at my funeral..........

  4. Kia ora Kylie,
    I agree with Tony, it would make me smile knowing little bits of life go on.

  5. lol. a la janet jackson. happy TT!

  6. Oh no, here we go on the underwear kick again. Didn't we cover our asses with underwear last year?

    Oh and thanks for the Micro Question over on the blog. I promise I'll get a new post up someday. I'm just really busy lately. I have copied and pasted my answer to your question from there over to here.... so without further ado....
    Bacillus subtilis, known as the hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. A member of the genus Bacillus, B. subtilis is rod-shaped, and has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis is not considered a human pathogen; it may contaminate food but rarely causes food poisoning. If I were the one cleaning the countertop I would opt for either Clorox or Lysol wipes. Not only do they kill bacteria, but they kill viruses too. It sounds to me that your boss just has OCD. I'm not sure why he/she is so concerned about Bacillus subtilis. It's MRSA that he/she should be worrying about!!!

  7. tony, nice to have you here. let me know when your funeral is on and i'll see what i can do :)

  8. robb, hi!
    i reckon i'd like something slightly shambolic at my funeral


  9. brian!
    not sure if i should go in the same breath as ms jackson.....
    good seein you here

  10. cece
    i'm not exactly talking about underwear, i'm talking about a "whoops" moment. just happens to involve underwear.

    thanks for your answer MRSA being multi resistant staph aureus?

    i thought it was a lot of nonsense from someone who is overinflated. you seem to agree

  11. Hahhahaha very funny. Thanks for sharing! ;)

  12. Ah, yes. Puts me in mind of the day I walked with 2-year-old Hedgie all the way from house to drugstore with my dress fully tucked up in my unders, in back. Hedgie pointed it out only when we'd arrived safely at the store. She laughed like a little maniac...

    Excellent whoops.

  13. Too funny. Kids put us in the most embarrassing situations.

  14. I guess it always pays to wear those classic black panties. Just as versatile as the little black dress.

  15. What a bunch of wackos.

    1) Kylie, stop. This instant.
    2) Cece, knock it off.
    3. Kylie. Oh Good God!!

    You guys are going to kill me. Seriously. Knock it off. Oh, and just so you know, I'd love to be able to wear black panties like that!! Wow.


  16. Just so you know, I entered the competition. What a blast. And yes, I expect to win.

  17. Funny tail... errr.... tale, I mean!

  18. suzy,
    those are the exact brand and style i wear.

  22. Hi Kylie,
    That was a funny whoops, and an embaressing one too. So glad you found out in time.
    Thanks for sharing this.
    God bless.

  23. Hi Kylie!

    That's a real whoops! Like getting your skirt stuck in your knickers after leaving the ladies' room. Too embarrassing:)
