I’ve got a bad case of the Wednesday blues. You know when you wake up thinking it is Friday but then realize it is only Wednesday and it feels like your entire life is a lie and you don’t even know who you are anymore? Hands up if you are feeling those Wednesday blues too. Yeah I see ya, and you know what I think…I think we all need a little cheering up. And what better way to cheer you up than to have a laugh about some of my most embarrassing moments in my life thus far.
Think of it as my gift to you on this gloomy Wednesday. You are welcome.
Also I’m sharing all the bitmojis because they are my favourite and I make no apologies for that.
Embarrassing moment number one:
Okay this one was way back in school when I was around 13-ish I think.
The age where you aren’t a little kid but you aren’t quite a teenager yet, so you are sorta trying to be cool and fit in but also don’t quite know how to do that. Seeing as most of you didn’t know me at this age, I’ll let you know that I was very shy, very awkward and very much a goody-two-shoes. I liked to slide into the background and not make a fuss.
People can’t pick on you if they don’t know you exist!
So there I was, little quiet Megan, sitting in class watching the teacher write some boring sum or example on the board and out of nowhere that little devil on my shoulder and told me that it would be hilarious if I flung the hair-tie I was playing with at my teacher.
The little angel on the other side of my shoulder must have been on her lunch break because before any sense could be talked into me, I flicked the hair-tie off my fingers and it hit my teacher smack-bang on the back of his head.
He turned around glaring at the class. Steam poured out his ears, nostrils flared. I started sweating and shaking in my boots.
“WHO DID THAT?” He yelled. I shrunk down into my seat but with all the courage I could muster raised my limp hand. His eyes grew wide and his voice lowered in shock. The entire class had their eyes on me.
Somehow I got away with that one completely unpunished but it is safe to say I was so mortified by my act of rebellion that I never did anything like that again.
Embarrassing moment number two:
Another throwback to school but this time I was all grown-up and much less awkward (I wish.)
I rode to school on the bus every single day. I lived an hour away from school so it is fair to say that the ride was long and sometimes unbearable. Fortunately, as you got older you were allowed to creep further and further back on the bus until you were the oldest, coolest kid sitting on the back seat.
So there I was, sitting on the back seat, in my final few weeks of high school. It was the ride to school and I was feeling very nervous because that day I had to give a speech to my class and my very least favourite thing (second only to visiting the dentist) was public speaking. I felt slightly queasy but I put that down to pre-speaking nerves.
The bus was rattling along and I was half-chatting to my friend, half trying to get fresh air on my face to ease the queasiness. My friend was running late that particular morning (bless his heart) and so he had his oatmeal in a little takeaway cup that he was eating from.
All of a sudden I knew I was going to be sick so I grabbed the cup from his hands and threw up my own breakfast into it (sorry.)
The bus driver had to pull over and let me hobble off to get some fresh air. It turns out that I actually had caught a nasty stomach bug and it wasn’t just my fear of public speaking that was making me ill.
Anyway, I got better and gave my presentation and I apologized profusely for ruining my friends breakfast…and gave him a new cup to make up for it.
Embarrassing moment number three:
Okay this one was back when I was very young, innocent and naive about all things love and romance.
Every year my family went camping together and it was the highlight of my year. My cousin and I had great fun playing on the playground, swimming in the sea and visiting all the shops buying candy bracelets and lip gloss (the essentials.)
This one year there was a group of families all staying at the campground together and they had kids around our age too. They were always out hogging the playground making my cousin Louise and I most disgruntled. Didn’t they know that,that was our turf?
Anyway, one night we were out on the playground and they were there too and one of the little boys came over and told me that he liked me! No one had ever said that to me before so it was quite a shock. Not to mention that it came from our archenemy.
I don’t know why but Louise decided that if he liked me then he had to prove it, so she told him he had to sing to me.
So there we were sitting on the trampoline with this poor little guy singing some soppy love song while Louise and I giggled at him.
I’ve always quite fancied the idea of being serenaded by someone but little 7-year old me couldn’t quite deal with this sudden attention and if I recall correctly I ran back to our tent and hid while Louise broke his heart for me. Megan killing it with the boys from day one.
