 Well friends I went on a night out on Sat with my friends, I had been looking forward to it for nearly a month, buying a new  top and getting my hair done........ Then just after we finished having our meal I was bending down to pick my handbag up and MY BAG BURST!
Right there in the restaurant, I just got up and ran to the ladies and you will never believe it, I had forgot to bring emergency supplies!!!! nono
 
Two of my girlfriends suggested going to the local A/E and I was in a state to say the least, but that's what I did, and the nurses were so lovely to me, I was in and out in half an hour! New bag on and gorgeous paper pants yeah   and back to the bar I went, LOL, I was really lucky the YUK didn't go on my jeans or would have went straight home.
 
So that's me had my nightmare come true. tongue

But you handled it well! And, you even finished your evening with your friends!!! I admire that one. Thanks for sharing... so what caused the bag to burst?

Hi Peggy,

I usually find if I don't eat alot my output becomes just like water and I had not much to eat because I was going out for dinner, but I did have about 2 & half glasses of wine while sitting with our meal, so maybe that's the culprit.

When my output is really watery it does somehow leak or burst, I don't know why,

A good night in the end though.

sounds like you handled it well, i probably would have just run away screaming and crying, which surely wouldnt' have called attention to it!
anyway maybe you could try taking an immodium before you go out
