My three most embarrassing moments

Hi friends!

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.

Taking a look back three of the most embarrassing moments of my life so far. If you need a little laugh today then this is the post for you. Boy am I glad I am all grown up and don't do embarrassing things anymore (yeah right.)

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.

  1. Thank you for sharing!! I know the feeling as I’ve had my fair share of embarrassing moments for sure! If it makes you feel better, in reference to embarrassing story #2, I threw up outside in public once because I caught the flu! People walking past were asking me if I was okay, which was kind of them, but I still felt really embarrassed since it was a busy Saturday in the city.

  2. That little boy was pretty courageous to sing a love song to you. 😀 And I don’t know what else you could have done on the bus; that’s a pretty quick reaction to a dire situation.

    What did the teacher do after you told him you did it?

    Oh boy. I was totally the ‘goodie two shoes’ yet I embarrassed my sisters a lot by doing really stupid and saying really stupid things. Once I had a full cart of groceries (I think I was by myself) and I was pushing it over a speed bump in the parking lot when it tipped over and groceries went everywhere.

    Another time was… terrible.

    We were Christmas caroling at someone’s house. I thought it was the house of one of our friends. We went into these subdivisions that all looked the same, and I stopped mid song and asked, ‘Is this the ___’s house?’ My sisters all looked at me like, ‘Isn’t it obvious that it isn’t their house?’ I think I turned really red… but it was dark outside, so I don’t know if anyone saw. Needless to say we left after I sufficiently embarrassed all of us. O_O

    I could go on, but maybe I should use your post as inspiration to share some of my embarrassing moments? What do you think?

    1. He was very brave! I would never have done something like that. My teacher was just so shocked that it was me who did it that he didn’t know what to do haha! Oh my gosh I laughed at the image of you with the groceries you poor thing! I’m so clumsy so I feel your pain. Yup you should totally share some embarrassing moments too!

  3. Hahah these are fantastic. I have considered doing a post like this but I seriously think mine may be toooooo awful to share (some repressed memories right there!). And goody-to-shoes all the way. Hahah.

  4. Hahaha! I love this! I will have to think about my own embarrassing moment lol. I can’t do things like that on the spot! But man, these are the funniest things EVER! Reading this made my Thursday morning a little bit sweeter! I was always a goody-two-shoes myself! haha!

  5. HAHA omg Megan!! That story #2 made me cringe–I’m so sorry you were sick, and I had something similar almost happen when I thought I was going to puke on someone in a train full of people (morning sickness while teaching/commuting=the worst) haha.

    1. Yeah it was not my finest hour! Oh no that must have been terrible. There is nothing worse than feeling trapped when you feel sick too.

  6. I was always a goody two shoes!

    My most embarrassing moment involved vomiting too! I was in German class in the seventh grade at school and I kept telling my teacher I wasn’t feeling well – only she wouldn’t let me go to the bathroom or get some fresh air so I sat squirming in my chair, knowing I wasn’t well at all.

    Then all of a sudden I knew I was going to be sick and I got up from my chair and went to run for the door, only to have the teacher stop me which slowed me down and I got halfway down the balcony of the classroom and threw up all over the floor.

    I was MORTIFIED.

    And I’m one of those people that hate hate hates vomit and vomiting and I totally didn’t go to school for two weeks because I was scared people would laugh at me, haha.

  7. Hahah, awesom stories. Do they still make you cringe? Or are you ok with it now? ;-). I was such a goody-two-shoes! And I think I blocked all of my embarassing moments… Oh wait, I do. When I was about 8 or 9, I cut my hair short. Like, really short. And the boy I liked called me a boy, even though I was wearing a skirt :(. So I ran away, haha.

    1. I cringe a little, but I guess they all happened quite a while ago so it almost feels like I was a different person. Aw no you poor thing! I’m very glad I never managed to get ahold of scissors and cut my own hair!

  8. I was a good two shoes, but I still have plenty of embarrassing moments. I have a medication that causes me some bowel issues and the feeling of needing to go hits me immediately. I ended up accidentally pooping myself last year in a public space while playing Pokemon Go with my husband. It felt like it took forever for us to get to our car. I obviously survived and I can laugh pretty hard about it now, but IT WAS DEFINITELY EMBARRASSING.

    1. Oh no I’m so sorry that happened to you! How awful! It is terrible when something completely out of your control happens like that.
