Describe Your Most Embarrassing Moment
Oh man, that is a tough one. Asking me to throw my most embarrassing moment out onto the interwebs. Although, what was once embarrassing isn’t so much anymore. Remember that as you’re growing up. The sting really does fade.
I would have to go back to 15 years old for this one. Back in the olden days for fun we would hang out in parking lots…I know, lame. But we would drive up and down the road and hang out at different parking lots, so there’s that. There we were on a Friday or Saturday night “uptown” hanging out in the parking lot with at least half the school. My buddy and my BFF hopped in the truck to drive across the parking lot to the movie rental store…I know, craziness..movies were physical items that had to be rented from an actual store. Ask me about VHS one day…I’ll blow your mind.
Anyways, I thought it would be a great idea for me and my boyfriend to hop on the back bumper and catch a ride. Side note: if you ever feel this is a great idea, think twice. Another side note: if you think twice and still do it, make sure the driver knows you’re there. You may see where this is going. He gassed it, my feet fell off. BUT the worst part is that I held on. I held on and tried to run. I actually thought I would be able to keep up and hop back on. Spoiler alert: I didn’t.
So, that moment came where I had to let go and a tumblin’ I did go. In front of the. whole. school. It was mortifying. Oddly enough, not painful though. So side note: tuck and roll if this happens to you. 😜
Now someone please, please comment with your embarrassing story!
