    So how does one work up an audience for Kenny G?

    I was covering a story about a new Matson steamship for the Advertiser and all the media was there. For those of you who know me, my wearing a skirt to work is just unheard of, until that day. I had to climb a big metal stairway onto the ship, the wind is blowing and the KITV camera guy is right behind me and I was just so embarrassed as I knew my panties (UGH!!! under pantyhose!!!!) were showing. Not exactly sexy when there's pantyhose holding everything in place, right? I don't know if he had the camera rolling or what, but I didn't ask and I don't want to know. But it still embarrasses me to think about it! I tried to be cool, calm and collect about it but inside I was dying!

    You learn something new every day...

    I never knew what Kenny G's last name was!

    Thanks for mentioning it Leo... Especially since I'm from the Northwest... you would have thought that I would have known it!

    Thanks for bringing it up!

    PJ - I learned something from Leo's post... I'm not sure what your problem is with what he posted.

    If you're not sure, then your reading comprehension really does need some serious help.

    I'm glad that you learned something new. There was nothing for me to learn, as I already knew what Kenny G's last name was. Instead of an embarrassing moment, it was self-important name-dropping. Auwe.

    Unless introducing Kenny G was embarassing. I can see how it might be.

    PJ...

    Leo knows many people from his daily life and working job. Why does it bother you so much that he has gifted us HT users with a bit of his life?

    If you call it so called name dropping...

    "the Context is key to this delicate maneuver. “Ideally you want to steer the discussion to a subject and plant a seed, so you can name-drop in response." George Stephanopoulos. http://men.style.com/details/feature...d=content_4156

    And I think Leo plants many seeds through his thoughts, wisdom and his experiences... part of those include the people that he meets and interacts with.

    I myself have been guilty of name dropping... and sheesh...these were just family members.

    Leo - I appreciate hearing your first hand accounts of those that you are fortunate enough to meet... and I hope that you will continue to let us know who you do happen to get a chance to meet.

    I know many others also talk about who they meet and do it in a sense that they are impressed by this so called person... however, Leo - I know your in the industry that deals directly with many people that might be envious of you.... so you just keep letting us know who you meet.... cause I enjoy hearing the stories.

    Gifted "us" HT users? Speak for yourself.

    This thread is about embarrassing moments. Who cares if Leo got to meet Kenny G? And the "hee hee" to start? Please.

    I stand by my opinion. The post I referred to was nothing but self-important name-dropping.

    So last week I got home from the dentist and I have a hyper sensitivity to the lydocaine! And they gave me 3 shots of it
    I got back in the car to go get dinner with the hubby and kids (they were getting shoes on and I was not going to help)
    and I found a pair of binoculars....I noticed my face was warped in them so I spaced out for some reason and was looking into them and sticking my tongue out and just generally being a dork....and guess who walks up and just stands there, yes our friendly mailman.
    He didn't say Hmm HMM or anything. He just stood there! I turned around and nearly wet myself!
    Since when is psycho a bad thing??

    I think it was a beige Skimp Skamp HiKini. It was in OK shape, but, you know how pantyhose kinda scrunches stuff?
    And well, yes, maybe I was kinda bummed that once I originally bared all, my contribution was diminished, so that's why I brought it back up. Maddie presented me an obvious segue, wouldn't you say? Funny what the boys pay attention to!

    Another embarrassing moment, since I'm on a roll. That one happened about 12 years ago. Here's one that happened probably 24 years ago:

    I was surfing at Diamond Head, having graduated from the breaks of Waikiki to venture further afield on my own. I made friends wherever I surfed. I was wearing one of those high-leg, color blocked one pieces in red and blue and the straps were crisscrossing along the back, etc., etc., etc., I swear those suits were a trip to put on. I'm riding this wave as fun as can be, up and down, cutting back, riding it nearly to the beach. I pop off my board and notice that my right boob enjoyed the ride, too. And so did every guy between the break and the beach. I love surfing so much that I tucked it back in and paddled back out. One of the guys said, "That's the best wave I ever saw!"
    Such is life. Whatchagonna do? Catch another wave! To this day when I first take off I'm checkin' this-n-that!

    Nah, nah - sorry for the confusion. I don't like Kenny G's "muzak," and I was admitting to it being a now-embarassing moment that I had been on stage with him. Sorry if you picked up on it as something else.

    The guy actually has good jazz chops, and he's chosen a path that makes him more money than most sax players - it's his choice and I can respect that decision. But that doesn't mean I have to like his music. Nor do I have to use it in my programming. Inserting himself into Louis Armstrong's iconic recording of "What a Wonderful World" was a slap in the face to those who enjoy jazz.

    Well, you can always use the "ignore" function if it bothers you so much; I ain't going away.

    Some embarassing moments I've had:
    I was surfing Rocky Point the other day, and had just paddled in and was messing around the shore break. I saw a nice little section that I thought I could try showoff on: launch a little air then catch my board and walk in. Instead, one of my skegs caught in the sand, and I went doughnuts right on my face... five feet in front of three really really hot wahines. They just started giggling.

    I was in Waikiki last week and got in the elevator just as someone got out. He wen left one mean fart in there. It was so nasty I could almost see the fumes. Next floor, a bunch of Japanese tourists came in, and thought that I was the one fut. What sucked was that they didn't speak English, so I couldn't even explain to them that it wasn't me. I'm still pissed at the buggah that did that. I know I'll never see them ever again, but still... I shouldn't get the blame/credit for laying a nasty fart when it wasn't me.

    One time during a church sermon, I was so tired from having to work until 4am the previous night, I fell asleep on the shoulder of the pastor's wife who was sitting next to me. She had to nudge me awake, but not before I left a little drool spot on her shoulder. To this day, I still can't look her in the eye.

    Oh my word I had the worst expo today!!!

    Ok like everyone knows, my cars gone right? and now I have this loaner which is an SUV.

    OK. I'm at Cheveron gas station in town this morning, and I'm wearing my short denim skirt thingy and I jump out of the truck. The delivery guys at the pump next to me start SMILING. So, like the Dittsy-Do that I am, I smile back, walk all the way inside to pay for gas, bought me a drink AND THEN noticed as I'm walking back to the truck......unbeknoweth to me, my ASS was showing, not my whole ass just the bottom right cheeck!! Oh hell that was embarrasing!!

    Thank goodness none of you'all were there,

    KaYa T.

    I thought I posted this on HT but couldn’t find it using search.

    Anyways, this happened in the summer of 2004. I just came out of my bathroom (and was half asleep) when I kept feeling drops of cold water on the back of my legs. But my legs weren’t wet! Every step I took I kept feeling the cold on the back of my legs and I was sure there was Obake around me so I started screaming. I turned around and realized that there was a long strand of toilet paper hanging out the back of my pajama pants. At that moment my husband came down the stairs. He had the ‘what-the-heck-is-wrong-with-you’ look on his face. How embrassed I felt (and must’ve looked) when I told him about the toilet paper!

    Kaya, I love and admire your attitude. Although your car was stolen ~ you still have a sense of humor! Das the only way to be. We can not control what happens in Life. Materialistic things can always be replaced...but LIFE is PRECIOUS!
