Can you believe that the 15 Day Challenge is on the downswing? I love that so many of you have been opening up on your blogs, sharing tons of personal information and your hearts with us!
Today's challenge is brought to you by Jena, which shouldn't surprise you if you read her blog!
[Day 10]: What is your most embarrassing moment?
(Possibly related, her other suggestion was to describe your first kiss, so maybe she has a hilariously embarrassing first kiss story?! Do tell, Jena!)
I have only had one big "embarrassing" moment stick out in my life. I use quotations because it wouldn't be as embarrassing to me now, and I don't actually remember it being embarrassing at the time (it actually resulted in me getting a boyfriend), but it's my go-to story when people ask this question.
Plus, it involves Lou, one of my favorite bloggers and IRL friend!
The school district I attended had elementary school as grades 1-6, junior high 7-9, and high school 10-12. There were three junior highs in the district that fed into two high schools, thus my junior high split up into both high schools. Because the other junior high fed straight into the high school, students from each junior high got to meet a whole new crop of students from the other junior high.
Because I was a cheerleader, I was required to wear my uniform all day prior to big games or school events (yes, you can all see where this is going). The Friday of the second week of school was traditionally a pep rally day, which means we wore our uniforms all day and then performed at the assembly during the last period.
I should point out here that I had just started talking to a guy J who was in my world history class who was quite possibly cuter than any of the guys from my junior high.
After the pep rally, my friend Laura decided it would be fun to talk to J by his locker after school. She grabbed me by the hand and I hesitantly followed (although it was probably more like dragging, 'cuz although I spit a ton of game, I'm kind of shy in first interactions with Hottie McHottersons such as J). Laura dragged me throughout the hall, when Lou saw us coming and jokingly stuck out her foot in front of us.
Laura saw it. I did not.
I went falling for what seemed like eternity (but I'm 5'2, so it was probably around .4 seconds), then rolled over and landed with my backpack on the ground upsidedown-turtle-style, with my feet in the air propped up on a locker. In a cheer skirt.
J saw and made a joke and I was able to play it off (somehow!) and we ended up taking a walk and decided to "date" (whatever that meant in 10th grade). I tried to find a photo of us from a dance but I luckily couldn't find any off-hand.
Although it's not really embarrassing, it's probably the most "embarrassing" thing that has ever happened to me that I can remember. Maybe I'm just blessed with a short memory.
What's your most embarrassing moment? Here's hoping it doesn't involve a cheer skirt! Link up here:
