Embarrassing Moments Week - Day 2.

I like to think of myself as a proper person. I dated husby for 4 years before we got married and NOT ONCE did he hear me burp or heaven forbid…toot.  I actually told him one time that I do not do those things at all – never – not even in the privacy of me, myself and I.  I don’t think he believed me, but I hoped he would. 

I once had a conversation with a guy friend from college and he told me he and his fiance did those things in front of each other every day.  I gasped in horror and repugnance, and he went on to tell me that Husby and I were weird for not doing it.  I knew he was wrong.  I boasted in my girliness and femininity at all times and wanted Husby to know that I was a lady through and through. A proper lady who never did those kinds of things. 

On our honeymoon, we took a Caribbean cruise. It was day 4 on the sea and we were all dressed up for formal night. I was in a beautiful canary yellow gown with fantastic jewelry and killer shoes.  I got so many compliments on those shoes.  We enjoyed a lovely dinner together, gazing in each others eyes and being totally in newlywedded splendor-filled love.  

After dinner, we took a stroll around the ship hand in hand.  We stopped at a map to see where the closest exit was so that we could sit outside and gaze at the stars above the roaring sea.  It was the epitome of romance.  We both stood in front of the map on Deck 3, quietly and intently as we searched for our exit, when we both heard a “toooot”.

Oh. My. Word.

I could have died.  Actually, I think I did die and he had to revive me.

Husby looked over at me and my face turned 3 shades of red. “IT WASN’T ME!”, I yelled, and took off running down the hall trying to flee the scene.  

He died laughing immediately and joked, “Man, Whitney – you married me and let everything go!”  I wanted to cry.  I was mortified.  There we were, standing on Deck 3, and I was near tears from humiliation and he was near tears, too…from laughing. 

To this day, he reminds me of the time I “Deck Three’d”, and I still insist that it wasn’t me. 

Nope, not I.  Til the day I die, it was not I.


Link up for Day 2 of Embarrassing Moments!

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. I laughed so much and had to show my husband this post too! Haha! I put my most embarrassing moment here too ;)

  2. My husband thought I never "went to the bathroom" if you know what I mean (at least I told him that). Then on our last day of our honeymoon I got horrific stomach cramps and had to rush back to the room to lock myself in the restroom. I was just as equally mortified. But I found out that marriage is very humbling. Messy hair, morning breath, no make-up, upset stomach . . . still wouldn't trade it.

  3. This post is so funny. I am of the same proper, lady-like mindset as you. My co-workers laugh at me all the time because I don't do those things in front of my husband. They think I'm strange, but we've been together 10 years now, and I only know of one time that I've done that (and it of course was on accident) Unfortunately my husband doesn't share my decency and doesn't try to hide it at all. I asked him a few weeks ago, after he "tooted" what he'd do if I just sat around and did that. His response...."I"d tell your mother!" :) HA

  4. Hilarious! I may have to join in the link up because this is just too much fun!

  5. Hahaha! My husband and I started doing this in front of each other like a week into our relationship! Sometimes we even high five if it's a good burp!

  6. My husband pulled me into his lap right after we were married too tightly and I tooted on his lap. And then I died inside.
