I’m in a strange mood today. I think my brain is a little lopsided because I’m getting sick. I thought I would come here and write about taking care of yourself or eating tacos or hugging tiny monkeys, but instead I just wrote down a few embarrassing moments in my life. Then I decided that everyone likes reading about other people’s humiliation, so here they are.
- I couldn’t remember the word for the openings in my nose and so I called them nose holes. The word nostril has never again been uttered in my home.
- My parents threw me a sixteenth birthday party in my backyard. A bunch of friends came to celebrate and the party went late into the night. At one point, I went to go talk to some guys hanging out on my hammock. I thought to myself, “I’ll run over, thereby accomplishing two things—looking cool and getting there quicker.” I immediately tripped over the rope holding up the hammock and fell on my face. I accomplished neither of my goals.
- I was walking down the street and jumped back a foot, grabbing Dave’s arm. I was scared by a falling leaf. I said, “I thought it was a butterfly.”
Probably you guys also have embarrassing moments that are ridiculous enough to make us laugh but not so horrifying that you bury them inside forever. You should share them in the comments section, so we can create a community of slightly-embarrassed but awesome people. It will be fun, I swear!
