E: Embarrassing Moment
Okay, I have a lot of these. Probably more than the average person. I'm clumsy, shy, and I tend to have a strange sense of humor. However, I've decided to share one particularly embarrassing moment from about three or four years ago.
I was eating lunch at a deli with some of my friends. One of these friends was Whitney. On that day, she happened to be wearing a bright yellow t-shirt. Yellow is a bright color anyways, but this shirt was NEON. It was so bright that it was rare. Surely nobody else in the vicinity would have a shirt the same color.
After going through the line and ordering my food, I started to get my drink out of the fountain. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a neon yellow shirt approach me and begin pouring a drink out of the same fountain. She stepped pretty close to me AND she was wearing a bright shirt, so it would be natural to think that she was Whitney, right?
Spinning around, I balled up my fists and said in a low, growly voice, "What do you think you're doing, little girl?" Something I'd typically say as a joke to a friend.
Well, it wasn't Whitney.
A forty-something-year-old woman in a neon yellow t-shirt stared at me with a mixture of horror and confusion on her face.
And then, instead of acting cool, instead of laughing it off, instead of apologizing and explaining how I'd mixed her up with a friend, I backed slowly away before rushing back to my table and burying my head in my arms. My face was probably red for the next two days.
I was so embarrassed.
