My Most Embarrassing Moments

I'll be honest, I've had some awkward things happen to me in my short years. Usually caused by my own stupidity. Yes, I tend to stick my foot in my mouth a lot. I'm that girl. Sigh.

This is my pretty face
One time, in high school

A football-playing senior is waving at me and saying hi? Huh? I tentatively wave back, only to realize he is waiving to someone behind me. Life fail.

What I learned from this situation: I will never ever wave at anyone ever again, even if I think they are waving at me. Instead I wait until they come up to talk to me. Anything to avoid this terrible embarrassment... 

Last month, in bible study:

Elder: I'm the oldest guy in the church!
Me: Not for long.
Him: What did you just say?
Me: Erm...nothing...
Him: Did you just say not for long?
Me: Uh, yeah. But, um, I was talking about, erm, well, what if someone older joins the church?
Different lady: Uh...
Me: So, uh, about that Psalm?

Mr Adventure, later, in the car: Hahahahahhahahmuhahahahhahahahaha...
Me: Just take me home
Him: My wife is funny.
Me: Your wife is not funny. Your wife is an idiot.
Him: Funny seems safer...

What I learned: I am an idiot.

Last week, in bible study:

Lady: Hi! I met you before, remember?
Me: Yeah, you were that lady who I thought was my age.
Lady: ...oh?
Me: Uh, I mean, I thought you were younger then you really are.
Lady: I see. 
Me: So, uh, how have you been?

What I learned: I really need to purchase a muzzle. A large muzzle.

These three situations really happened. Now, please excuse me while I go hide under my bed again.

Daw! You poor thing! Those are definitely not fun moments. I can definitely relate to the waiving thing. Done that on multiple occasions! Still do sometimes... :P

hahaha...oh man, I really hate being embarrassed. But tomorrow I'm sharing an embarrassing clothing faux pas on the blog...
And as far as not waving to people, I don't even respond at all when I hear 'Rachel" called because Rachel's such a common name, I figure they never mean me. Only sometimes they do and they have to come and grab me.

I am full of embarrassing moments as well! It's how I learned to laugh I guess. Sometimes I just shake my head. :)

I'm sorry for laughing at you! Oh, and waving at someone... yeah. I've had that happen more times than I'd like to admit.
