What, what!!! How is it already July 10th?! Man is it just me or is this year flying by way too quickly?! Yikes. . . .What is your most embarrassing moment? . . .Well, wouldn’t you know it i have a ton. Seriously, i could spout out at least 5 off the top of my head. I tend to embarrass myself frequently; maybe i like to laugh or just bring a huge goofy smile to other people’s faces? Yes, we will stick with that explanation over the truth. The truth is–i’m just awkward. =). . .One of my favorites is from my freshman year of college.
Oh look at me, so cute…so ridiculously hyper and hilarious and crushing on tons of boys. I went to a Christian college where 99% of the boys i hung out with LOVED JESUS, didn’t care if they looked foolish worshiping God, played ultimate frisbee, would talk about theology with you, and genuinely cared about your personal relationship with Jesus, oh and treated you like a lady. Now, can you tell me who wouldn’t be crushing on tons of boys?!?!ha.Back to the embarrassment. Let’s call the guy Charles….yes, charles will do. I had a huge crush on Charles. Charles was a year or two ahead of me, super cute, loved Jesus, hilarious, …you get the picture.Well, we had a test to study for so we were in the library studyin’ it up when two of my awesome friends came by and wanted to say hello. I introduced them to Charles and their eyes lit up. Oh crap i thought, they are totally going to be such flipping jerks right now…i was right, they totally did. “Oh, your Charles?! Amy’s mentioned you only a bazillion times.” At this point i was rolling off different strangling scenarios that involved them. I’m pretty sure i had a horrified look on my face, and Charles just laughed…”She even has a picture of you on the wall that she kisses every night before she goes to bed”. At that comment he kind of got that deer in the headlights look. THE TRUTH WAS i did not have a picture of HIM just an actor that had the same name…i wanted to kill my friends. I interjected “NO, no i don’t, totally an actor’s poster, and i most definitely do not kiss it daily, or ever for that matter.” My “friends” started laughing; yes really funny ya’bunch of jerks. I don’t remember exactly what happened after that but i know that we had all started talking about other stuff and were just hanging out while not studying. The entire time i’m trying to save face and look like i’m still this super cool chick that he could totally be interested in if he wanted to…yes you guess it, it only goes downhill from here.I decide to be all stealth cat’like (??) and lean back in my chair. Well, we all know how big of a moment-killer gravity can be. I ended up falling backwards, slamming into a shelve of books (library remember), falling to the ground with books piling on top of me, while everyone laughed at me. I was in pain, embarrassed beyond belief and i just started laughing, and then i snorted, loudly. Yes, it was brilliant. At that point i realized i had blown any chance of looking graceful and awesome, but the flip side…he would totally always remember me (as an idiot!).. . .And that my dear friends is why i’m still single. If that’s how i act around a crush, just imagine the embarassment i put myself through in a relationship. HAHA.Just kidding…but not really. :). . .How about you? What are your embarrassing stories?
