Inadvertant "Harem Pants" Moment
I bought new white jeans at Levi's despite all my better judgement, and what do you know, the first day I wear them I spill an entire cup of lukewarm Earl Grey all over them. I was at work, so in order to rinse out the stain I was forced to wear a coworker's sweatshirt upside-down as pants. They freakishly matched with my brown shirt and I look like a kangaroo. Or a really earthy MC Hammer, or Aladdin wearing a diaper. I thought I could just jump on my bike and ride home, but my bike was a few blocks away, so I got to parade my sweatshirt pants in front of lots of people.
