        Whenever something really embarrassing happens to us, it’s usually a little upsetting or strange at first. But if you look back on it, it just might seem a whole lot funnier than you remember. Everyone has a moment like this at least one time in his or her life. Here are some examples from girls our age and their most embarrassing moments!!!

           *I remember one time I was hanging out with friends in my basement. After we did some other things for a little while, we decided to have some fun and set up an obstacle course. We made it have a tunnel, a couch jump, and hula-hoops. I was the first one to try the course, and as I was jumping through one of the hula-hoops, my pants fell down. While everybody laughed about it, I quickly tried to pull up my pants, hoping they hadn’t seen too much!!!

            *Not long ago, I was running around my backyard. My little sister was chasing and throwing the dog’s tennis balls at me. The only defense I had was a badminton racket that I had found lying around. After we ran around for a few minutes, I stopped when she was right in front of me and put the racket to my face. As I slowly walked backwards, looking at her. Before I knew it, I turned around and smashed right into a tetherball pole. My legs tucked under me and I tripped right beside it. So not only did I crash into the pole, but I also tripped over it when I stumbled back. Guess my sister had won that round!!!

*One time I walked into Starbucks really happy, because my mom was actually being cool for once. We went to the counter and she ordered a pumpkin latte. Yum! Then the lady at the counter asked what name she should put on the cup, and my mom responded "Primrose Everdeen." Never mind what I said about the cool thing. My mom is a nerd. She told me that she would take the latte and give it to my younger brother if I didn't reply when the coffee was ready with the phrase, "I volunteer as tribute." It would have been fine except for the lady who called it out struggled to pronounce "Primrose Everdeen" and obviously didn't know what it meant. I muttered, "I volunteer as tribute" and turned bright red as all the businessmen in there for coffee stared at me.

*Sit down folks and enjoy my story. There will be no bathroom breaks so please, go now so what happened to me won’t happen to you! So, when I was five, my mom and I were with my grandma looking at model houses in Florida, because she was going to move. I REALLY had to go to the bathroom. Not just like "Oh I can hold it" but like "IF I DON'T GO NOW I WILL PEE ON YOU!" So we ask the lady who was renting the house where the bathrooms were, and she told us (the modeling houses in Florida used to screw down the toilet lids so no one would use them. Keep that in mind as I tell my story.). We then went to a bathroom, and I’m doing my little dance so I won’t pee myself and guess what!! It's was the WRONG bathroom!!!! So we spent like 10 minutes trying to open the darn thing and I ended up peeing on the floor. Yes, a little 5-year-old girl peed on the floor then the lady got REALLY mad and kicked us out! How rude! I ended up wearing my grandpa’s shirt home.

*Once I went to a restaurant with my dad, and the most embarrassing thing happened. So my dad got in line while I went to the bathroom. When I got back, I realized I wanted extra fries with my order. I walked to the line and saw a man wearing a similar shirt that looked A LOT like my dad. I tapped on his shoulder and said “Hey Dad. Can you order me extra fries?”  He looked at me kind of funny after that and when I realized that he wasn’t actually my Dad, I laughed nervously and scooted away. I finally found my actual dad and said “So, dad. Can I get some extra fries?” then told him what happened.

*A couple of years ago, I was bun-busting behind a boat at camp, nothing special. Then I was whiplashed off the tube by the driver (my really hot counselor). That would have been totally fine and a lot of fun, if my bathing suit bottoms had been held together by something other than plastic circles! One of the circles on my bottoms broke, so I had to hold my bottoms up and yell “Hey guys! My bottoms broke!!!” Luckily all the campers on the boat were girls, so it was hilarious, and I ended up laughing at myself because it was so funny. The thing that made it embarrassing was my muy caliente (‘very hot’ in Spanish) counselor aka: boat driver. But other than that, it was actually really funny for me too, and I discovered that swimming in Nike shorts is really fun, because I had to wear my shorts for the rest of the day!

Here’s an embarrassing moment from an adult:

*Once I had a business meeting at a restaurant on an outside patio.  The tables on the patio happened to be right near a three inch drop-off.  As I was sitting down, I didn’t notice my chair leg was off the edge, and when I leaned back, I flipped over with my legs sticking straight up in the air and my skirt upside down, showing my panties. The businessmen just stared at me for what seemed like forever with their mouths wide open. Finally my business partner came to help me up, and I tried to quickly move on with the meeting.

We all have moments like these, and sometimes sharing them with others is a great way to have a good laugh. No matter what happens, it’s not the end of the world! Each of us has something fun and unique that makes us special. So if something ever happens to you that never meant to happen, don’t worry! It’ll be more enjoyable to think back on in the future!
