Cup flipped itself upside down!

OK, this has never happened to me before so I'm wondering if I am the only one, but anyway here it is... I was trying the "triangle" fold which is the "extreme 7" fold with my new(ish) GreenCup when my husband came into the bathroom and surprised me. I had the cup halfway in, and I let go and the little sucker flipped its bottom end (uncut stem and all) around and popped open upside down!

If you'd asked me I would have said this could never happen! Anyway, it became a bit of a bother to get it out because although I could grip part of the rim, it was too slippery to pull out easily. In the end I just yanked it out fully open, which was pretty uncomfortable.

Still, it hasn't put me off completely and I'm wearing the GreenCup as I type this. So that's a new experience for me - and a new one for the board? Or has anyone else been suprised at the "critical moment"?
