Today I am joining the Show & Tell Tuesday fun a few days late. This months topic is sharing your embarrassing moments. At first I wondered why in the world I (or anyone for that matter) would want to relive humiliation and put those red-faced moments on their blog for anyone to read. But then I realized that I have no shame and feel completely okay with making people laugh at the expense of my pride 😆 .
I opted to keep my stories short and sweet. I’m sure I could be more detailed, but I think a rapid fire approach may work best and keep me from questioning why in the world I am doing this.
Here we go…
~ I choke on water… like all the time. Who does this? Is it really that hard to drink?! I think not. One time I was convinced I was going to die. It was at dinner with our family and they all just stared at me.
~ The time you finish exercising, go get a towel to wipe the machine off, and wipe off the wrong one. I typically wouldn’t think much of it except for the fact that I silently judge others for doing it all the time.
~ Sometimes I develop a case of road rage and pass someone who is going painfully slow only to have them turn into the same location as I do… like church.
~ I’m a bit of a klutz and often find myself tripping over things. You know, both physical and invisible things. It takes a classy lady to trip over nothing.
~ I once wore my pants to the gym inside out. I made through nearly the whole entire workout before discovering it. I mean I DO workout early, but?!
~ I have a bad habit of saying ‘That’s what she said.’ at the wrong (or hilarious) moment. Usually the only person it really ends up embarrassing is myself.
~ I have a built blood pressure monitor that always let’s others know how I am feeling. Anytime I get anxious, nervous, excited (things that make my blood pressure go up) my neck gets red and blotchy. I literally walk around with my feelings on my neck. Maybe I should just wear turtlenecks all the time to mask it.
~ One summer I clothes-lined myself on a volleyball net the very first night of summer camp. (In my defense it was dark and yes, I was running.) I spent the rest of the week walking around camp looking like someone had tried to strangle me. Do you know what that does to a 13-year-old girls self-esteem?
~ Once I wore pink workout pants to an August night race and while looking at race photos when I got home I realized I had sweat so badly it looked like I had peed my pants. The pants have since been burnt. Never wear pastel colored pants when its 100+ degrees outside.
And these are just the ones that haven’t traumatized me so badly that I felt the need to block them out forever.
Tell me one of your embarrassing moments?
