Writer's Block: Remember that time…

What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you as a child? Are you still embarrassed whenever you think about it?

Well, I wasn't embarrassed at the time due to being very naive.  Every summer, my family would go to the beach.  I used to find bits of spent fireworks all along the beach.  Usually plastic caps, like rocket tips. A couple times I found these rounded bits of pink plastic and I recall my mother telling me to put them down.  I had thought they were also spent fireworks.  They weren't.  They were empty tampon applicators.  Ick.
