CWM's (Crazy Woman Moments)

A fun thread that I thought I'd introduce.

My friends and I would often talk about what we call "Crazy Woman Moments". They are moments that only women can experience, and is usually out of the ordinary and, well, crazy. I remember one such instance during my senior year of high school some years back.

It was "that time of the month," a Monday (which made it about ten times worse) and I had got up for school. The bloating was absolutely unbearable and outrageous. I put on a pair of my favorite skinny jeans, but, of course, they didn't fit. I had a class presentation that day, so sweatpants were absolutely out of the question. So, I did the only thing that I could do; I decided to pull out a pair of pliers, got down on my living room floor, and managed to get those stubborn jeans zipped up with pliers! (No one was home at the time). I've also used a coat hangar one time to do the same. An easy remedy for an all-too-monthly occurence.

Only in womanhood. Undecided

Oh this is a GREAT thread,, let's make it often.

Let's see..... one of my current CWM's is that I was in a very busy Italian restaurant dining with my dh and had to use the little ladies room.  I came wandering thru the restaurant leisurely back to my table and sat down.  Well the nice gal at the table next to me tapped me on the shoulder and pointed to a longggggggg white trail all the way from my waistband back to the ladies room.    

I guess this could happen to a man too, but it didn't , it happened to me in one of my CWM's.

COOOOOOL THREAD, love it.

 HI MEGAN!  Well I remember those skinny pants , just like spray painted on .... luckily I was in college at the time and at the dorm there was always someone who could zip them up for me while I was laying out flat.  One just prayed they didn't have to use the restroom before it was time to take the jeans off again... LOL

PLIERS!! Dang!! Wish I had thought of that!! LOL!! I've had to lie down on the bed a few times to zip up some tight jeans. They looked darned good once I got them on too even though I could hardly breathe!! LOL

One of my crazies was a top that I wanted to wear that had somehow shrunk...ahem...in the dryer. I'm sure that is what happened!! So I got out my scissors and cut that top up both sides, put a nice jacket on over it and away I went!! No mishaps, no one knew what I had done and my comfy fitting top looked great! Whew!! LOL

Suzan...OMGosh on the toilet paper!! How embarrassing!!! LOL!!

I have a toilet paper story too. I was shopping at Walmart and I became one of those "Walmart shoppers" you see on YouTube!! Two younger good looking foreign looking men and I were flirting up and down a couple of aisles as we kept running into each other. Just giggly fun sort of flirting. Then one of them said.....

"Um..mam..there is something hanging out the back of your shirt."

"Oh?", said I.

I reached around and it was toilet paper hanging out of the waist of my pants!! Darn it!! I wish it had been a woman that had told me and not some handsome foreign looking man!!! So embarrassing!!! I thanked him as I was grabbing that paper and stuffing it into my purse and walking away with a neon red face!!! You see, I had lined the seat with toilet paper before sitting down in the public rest room. When I stood up and pulled my pants up, one of the pieces of paper lining the seat got stuck in my pants!! I always double check on that potential little problem from now on!! LOL

Donna that reminds me of a shirt I've got. It's ancient but I love it. It's a pretty yellow and looks nice under a sweater - and a sweater is the only way I can wear it! The body of the blouse is worn so thin, it's actually see through! But the collar is nice, so I wear it under a sweater and no one is the wiser.  I just pray I'm never in a situation in which I have to take the sweater off!

Ann..I know what you mean about hoping you're never in a situation where you'll have to take the sweater off!! I thought of that, too, when I wore my cut up top! Can you wear the shirt with a cammie under it? I love my cammies!!

Keeping the thread alive.

One of my craziest woman moments (if not the craziest) was my first period. It decided to strike right in the middle of standardized testing back in my 8th grade year. Of all the times for it to come, it came during a very important standardized test. What's worse, I couldn't even leave testing until it finished (which was for about another 3 hours!)

Crazy moment, and a hellish one at that. Yell

Eeee..Uuuu..Megan..that sounds really messy!!

Another period story...me, 9th grade, out on the dance floor twirling around in fast dancing where all the world could see the big red spot on the back of my skirt when a girlfriend FINALLY told me about it!! Ughhh!!!

On the Tilt-A-Whirl ride at the carnival, I laughed so hard I peed my pants!!
