Day 10: Your most embarrassing moment
I'm sitting here on my couch with a belly full of hot chocolate racking my brain for some embarrassing juicy story to tell you but I got nothing. Please don't think it's because I never do anything embarrassing.
Au contraire, mon frere.
I could tell you about the time I accidentally set my cousin's lawn on fire with a New Year's sparkler. That was pretty embarrassing.
Or the time I almost fell in a duck pond while out at a photo session with clients.
Or that time in 3rd grade when I finally braved the giant water slide at Splashtown only to have it rip a whole in the bottom of my bathing suit, which meant I then had to spend the entire rest of the day with my 8-year old butt crack showing . . .
Oh, and we all know about that time I Gangnam Style'd my way to a sprained ankle (which still gets sore sometimes, btw).
Or how about the fact that I was born pigeon-toed (both feet turned inward) and had to wear special shoes to straighten out my feet. And when I started talking, I developed a speech impediment and had to go to special speech therapy classes. With a start like that, you're kinda doomed to a lifetime of embarrassment.

Or the fact that this photo even exists. I mean, the vest that looks like grandma's upholstery, the buttoned up shirt, the brooch at the collar???? Not to mention the one-eye-brow-partially-raised-and don't-show-teeth-when-you-smile expression on my face. That's pretty embarrassing.
(No, that's not a blob of bird poo on my head. It's a tear in the photo.)
I've finally reached the point where I've done so many embarrassing things that my brain either can't tell which is the most embarrassing or just blocked the worst from memory altogether. Just please cross your fingers for me come my wedding day - I really don't want to trip on my dress, sprain my ankle again, have a wardrobe malfunction, set something on fire, or unknowingly make the one-eye-brow-partially-raised-and don't-show-teeth-when-you-smile expression in my wedding photos.
