Day Ten


Describe your most embarrassing moment.

Just ONE?! Hahaha! I am constantly embarrassing myself, so the list is long. But, if I had to pick one, I’d have to go back to high school.

The first day of sophomore year was also the first day of school at Flower Mound HS. That meant LOTS of new faces, so I tried to follow my Dad’s lifelong motto “Look sharp, feel sharp” and dressed up to cover my nerves. I wore a new top and skirt with a new pair of slide on wedges. (You know, the kind with no back.) My class right before lunch was on the second floor. The bell rang for lunch and I started heading down the flight of stairs right smack in the middle of busiest hallway at the school. I take a step and suddenly my ankle is rolling. The other foot kicks up without warning and my back-less wedge sandal goes sailing through the air, nailing a little freshman in the back of the head! He tumbles forward and falls down the 3-4 steps to the bottom – landing on his rear in the middle of the hallway. Of course, I was totally frozen in place as everyone on the stairs or in the hall turned to stare at me. I made my way down the stairs, hobbling on the one foot that still had a shoe to retrieve the other and place it back on my foot. I apologized to the guy and tried to talk to him, but he quickly gathered his books and ran (yes, literally ran) off. Oh, and did I mention everyone clapped? Yeah. They clapped.  

Mortifying.
