Every one in a while, because this is a new blog and when you start a new blog you should try to incorporate a few new features, I will be sharing "Is it True?" stories about myself. They will almost undoubtedly be extremely embarrassing, almost true or entirely true tales. It's up to you to decide whether I'm telling the truth, or making it up.
When I was about eleven years old, I got invited to a birthday party. Or maybe it was just a sleepover, I don't know. It was a gathering of girls at my friend's house, that I know for sure.
I'm almost entirely certain it was a birthday party, because I brought a present.
At any rate, I was young, it was a night over, and there was cake. It must have been a Birthday.
Around suppertime, I started to feel sick. Because I was a tough kid, I just kept it to myself, and continued to take part in the festivities.
Just before bed, a visit to the bathroom revealed why my stomach was in knots. I was surprised and horrified, because I did not expect it to happen, so I did not have anything with me!
So I balled up a bunch of toilet paper and stuck it in my panties, and went to bed.
I can't remember how many times I went to the bathroom that night, I think it was about twenty. Each time, I flushed the toilet. At last, I was able to fall asleep, hoping against hope that none of the other girls noticed anything.
In the morning, the toilets were backed up, and the sinks were overflowing. APPARENTLY, some people have very small septic tanks, and they can't handle an excess of toilet flushes.
My friend's Mom was very perturbed, but she had NO idea what had happened. Nobody had any clue that it was ME! I was the one who had overburdened their system!
I was horrified, but determined to keep my mouth shut. Especially because it had rained throughout the night, and everyone was convinced that was what has caused the problem. Perhaps it was.
I went home, mortified... and never breathed a word of it to anyone.
True, or Not True?
