I decided I wanted to go padded to my dad's birthday dinner. Unfortunately the tapes on my Abena just didn't want to cooperate today - one popped right away and I had to use the backup. Then I accidentally tore off the first tape and had to use the backup anyway. Then both failed while I was still getting dressed in the bathroom.
I knew my parents must have been ready to go, so I was in a bit of a pickle. First I tried bandaids, which I had on hand in the bathroom. Then I decided to just put my underwear and pants over the half-taped diaper and go try to find some duct or electrical tape, with the excuse of ''needing to fix something on my fish tank'' ready if questioned. But my parents were already out in the car and I luckily found some duct tape.
So back at home, we're singing Happy Birthday to my dad, and I'm thinking to myself ''What's this thing in my hair?'' I'd been walking around in public with the damn blue tape from the diaper stuck in my hair. I guess my parents didn't notice; it was probably hidden by my coat and shirt collar.
