Embarrassing Moments Last a Lifetime
Embarrassing moments can last a lifetime, either with shame or with laughter. Share some funny moments with us so we can laugh together!
Who for Halloween?
For Halloween, I drew tally marks all over myself, as a reference to a Doctor Who monster. Unfortunately, nobody got it. However, when I was eating lunch, this (pretty cute) guy walked by me and said, “Hey, I like your Doctor Who costume.”
I whipped around in my chair and yelled excitedly, “I KNOW, RIGHT?!”
He awkwardly chuckled.
I then explained, “Nobody gets it!”
He said, “Yeah, I love that episode.”
I once again yelled, “It’s so good!!!!”
He awkwardly chuckled again, quickly said, “Well, Happy Halloween,” and sped out the door. I may have scared him.

I was eating an apple in class one day. When I finished it I wanted to place the core out of sight so I put it in my coffee mug, which I thought was empty. It wasn’t. So when I plopped the core into the cup, a bunch of coffee splashed out all over the table.

Giggly Grape Soda
My best friend and I were quoting Napoleon Dynamite. For whatever reason, the line “I like your sleeves. They’re real big,” made me laugh so hard that grape soda came out of my nose.

I was at a diner with two of my friends when one friend asked, “Would you guys want to watch Peter Pan sometime this week? For some reason I just really want to watch Peter Pan.”
My other friend clarified, “The real one or the cartoon?”
“The cartoon,” replied the first friend.
I then decided to loudly sing, “WHEN THERE’S A SMILE IN YOUR HEART.“ At that moment, I noticed ALL conversation in the entire diner stop and I could feel every eye staring at me. I sunk so far into my seat that I was almost underneath the table.

This Girl is on Fire
In microbiology, we were assigned an experiment with the Bunsen burners. Somehow, my hair caught on fire from one of the burners. I go to a very small school, so when my hair caught on fire, everyone in the school could smell my burning hair. When I went to the office and asked to go home because my hair was burned, the office lady replied: “Oh, so you’re the reason we smelled burned hair.” I was happy to leave, so that no one else could know that it was my hair they smelled. Unfortunately, my secret wasn’t safe, and by the next day, everyone knew it had been my hair.
