Yom Bum Kippor

If you asked me what my most embarrassing moment was, I'd have to say it was the "table story" in college. But given that I am not sharing that experience with just anyone (and anyone has access to this blog) I thought it would be fun to share my second-most embarrassing story. Don't worry- this one isn't any less R rated, it just happened ten years earlier.

My family was at my grandmother's condo for the Jewish holidays. My family being my mother, my father, my sister and I, and our extended relatives. My grandmother's condo being a luxury 5-story building with a video intercom system.

As we got there earlier than my aunts and uncles, my father, sister and I thought it would be fun to play a game while we waited for everyone to arrive. My dad went down to the lobby and waved to the video camera. Tuned to channel 13 on the TV, my sister and I watched as my father blossomed into a TV star.

Next up was my sister. She went down to the lobby, and like my dad, made funny faces into the camera. Nothing too harmless.

Then it was my turn. Being the older sibling, I needed to strike gold here. I needed to outperform my father and sister. I needed to show some skin. Completely forgetting that this was a large building and that EVERY resident had access to the video intercom system (and was most likely watching it themselves waiting for their holiday guests to arrive) I turned around and put my back to the camera. And pulled down my pants. Yes folks, I mooned the camera and the 300+ senior citizens living in the building.

It was a very happy Jewish New Year for the old men watching...

    I can't wait for this year's passover. I hear it's supposed to be a full "moon" out that night...
