I Must Confess…my awkward moments
This week is all about the awks. Those totally uncomfortable moments where you wish the ground would swallow you up whole so you could escape the excruciating embarrassment of a particular situation.
I don’t know about you, but unfortunately there have been many moments in my life where I could have happily disapparated away to anywhere else, just to get away from an awkward moment.
Like the time I asked after an acqaintance’s children only to find out she didn’t have any (a fact I should have been aware of as we are friends on facebook) – that was pretty squirm worthy.
Or the time I had my first period while I was away with my Dad – he was really good about it but it was still awkward having “that” conversation with your father.
Let’s not forget about the time I told a friend I had feelings for them only to find they were not returned – always a very uncomfortable scenario.
Not to mention the time I ran out of a trial HSC music presentation when I could not answer the first question put to me. Yes, I up and ran out in utter panic. I had no words or answers or, really, any clue – not my finest moment.
And then there have been those occasions where words I have uttered in jest or in confidence to others have been misunderstood or relayed to others putting me into some very uncomfortable and awkward situations.
Thinking about any of these moments (and all those others too numerous to mention here) makes my insides squirm. I dread confrontation or feeling foolish or being in the wrong, so many of these occasions are the stuff of nightmares for me.
I must confess this was quite an uncomfortable post to write and brought back many memories that I wish were still long forgotten!
