What Was Your Worst Party Foul Moment?

You've all found yourself trapped in that unfortunate slow-motion moment when heads snap towards your direction, friends snicker with laughter, hostesses cry out with worry, and your cheeks turn red with embarrassment. You desperately try to block this moment from your memory but you can't (which is okay, because I'm sure DearSugar would say it's better to let it all out and deal with the repercussions). What I'm talking about here is the moment after your party foul. As much as I would love to say that I've never made a party foul, I just can't. If I never party fouled, I probably wouldn't be that much of a partyer - so I learn from my party fouls and they make me that much stronger (as a partyer).

About two years ago I was out to dinner in LA with the family. I was so excited about the arrival of the appetizer (I think it was pate but I'm not 100% sure) that when I reached for the tiny tasty toasts I knocked over an entire glass of RED wine spilling it directly onto my crisp WHITE Chloe jeans. I panicked (I only have one pair of Chloe jeans) and ran towards the bathroom. There was no way I could wear the red-stained jeans and ripped them off, passed them over to my mom (who asked a waiter for salt to help remove the stain), and prayed that she would somehow get the stain out. Luckily my older brother was wearing a pair of basketball shorts underneath his pants so I threw my hair in a ponytail, pulled on the bball shorts, slipped on my heels, and called myself sporty chic. In the end the stain come out and I learned from the party foul: drink white wine when wearing expensive white jeans. How about you readers, what was your worst party foul moment?

I have a really bad tendency to spill food not on myself, but on the people around us. I've dropped a whole plate of food on my friend's shoes during a cocktail party, somehow flipped an entire scoop of ice cream into the person sitting next to me's lap and the worst was when I was eating lobster with The Hubs and went to rotate my plate and ended up spilling the entire cup of hot, melted butter all over him. People don't exactly want to sit next to me anymore.

When I drink any amount of anything, I tend to gesture with my hands a lot more than usual (wine brings out the Italian side of me). Well, one time after drinking a little too much, I ended up knocking my glass of red wine over twice with my crazy hand movements during the course of my mother's brithday dinner. I don't think I've ever been so embarrassed in my life before. I guess that's better than one of my aunts, though- who is so notorious for breaking all my fancy mother's dishes that my mom won't put out anything nice while she visits and won't let her near the dirty dishes ever.

I think I've done the last one once. Recently at a party, I left my red wine somewhere, forgot about it and at the end of the evening, it had spilled on someone's bag and coat. I didn't do the spilling, but I definitely contributed by being careless about placement.

I think I have done one of each of the options listed here. Lesley, that's awful! Nixie, I have caught my hair on fire before too, right in front of a guy I really liked! Luckily it wasn't too much so I didn't have to get it radiaclly cut or anything! _________________________ Cheese It!!

I was a an office holiday party, at an exclusive hotel in DC. The partners of our firm were nice enough to rent out the penthouse so the party could go on as late as we would all like. I had a glass of red wine in my hand and the person nearest me turned, elbowed my arm, and i dropped my glass on their carpet, red wine spilling everywhere. Then i took a glass back to my room, and spilled it on the white bedding...but, i was able to turn the bedding around and tuck it under the diagonally opposite side of the bed, and i cleand the wall, covered the hurt magazines and the carpet was patterened so you couldn't see it. Damage bill avoided, yes! _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

I think Sugar should have a picture contest of WORST PARTY MOMENT......I am partial, my recent work Christmas shindig would be the perfect example.

One XMas Eve at my parents' house I tripped over a floor lamp, and it fell and crashed on the coffee table and in front of all the guests (as well as in front of a neighbor I had a crush on then!) :Oops: Also, one Easter I brought home a candle from church to a midnight dinner with family. I lean in to kiss my relative, and my hair caught on fire! I couldn't get the smell out of my hair for years until I finally cut it off! It has grown back since and is much more pleasant-smelling...:oy:

Two of my very good friends were getting married and her parents threw them an engagement dinner at their house. They are loaded and have this big, beautiful house. It was such a lovely party and things were going very well until dinner was served. It was a buffet and I took what I thought was chicken. Well, it was swordfish and I'm allergic to swordfish. I got violently ill and ran to the bathroom to throw up. Someone was in there so the only thing I could think to do was run outside. I threw up all over the front stairs, all over my dress and in the bushes. It was horrible. And while I'm outside puking my brains out, my friend's mother walks out with her grandparents!!
