I have never told anyone this story and it’s probably the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me. I am in the marching band and every year we take a trip to Wisconsin for band camp. To practice music, go over steps etc. We stay at Westley Woods in Williams Bay and right by our cabins is this huge lake. I was an incoming freshmen and I wanted the upperclassmen to think I was cool so I decided to jump in the lake. Not only did I just jump in, I jumped in fully clothed, with my shoes, socks, shorts, shirt and even my hat. Yes everybody laughed at me and not only did I make an idiot of myself I smelled like the lake for the rest of the trip. As I got out of the lake there was a sharp piece of medal, maybe a hook, sticking out of ladder going onto the deck. So stated to climb the ladder and my shorts and boxers are hooked on too it. I start to freak-out because I had no clue what was going on, then I slipped on the ladder and I fell into the lake...again. But this time instead of being fully dressed, my junk was out for everyone to see.
I could see my shorts hanging from the hook so I swam to get them. But if I got up everybody would see my butt. But I had to think fast because I had a rehearsal in about 10 minutes. I decided to just wait till everybody left the lake and I would get out and run into my cabin and get into a fresh pair of shorts. So I waited almost 20 minutes and they coast was clear. I swam as fast as I could, climbed up the ladder and sprinted from the deck all the way to my cabin. I stretched my shirt past my knees, but it was a white tee, so my body was still visible. I had finally made it back to the cabin and I as I ran into to door I tripped and fell and my stomach. I got the wind knocked out of me so I laid there holding my chest tightly. As I rolled over on my back, I looked up and there was my instructor and the rest of my cabin members looking down at me.
I’m looking back and I thought to myself, Why the hell didn’t I just put on my shorts that were still hooked onto the ladder?
