When I’m Not Reading: Awkward and Embarrassing Edition

September 7, 2013 Discussion, When I'm Not Reading 60


Many of you probably wonder what kind of riveting things happen in our everyday lives so we have decided to sporadically allow you a glimpse! Be excited. Whether it be a funny story or something so strange that happened we had to share it, you’re going to sit there and listen to it! Or else. This time, we’ll be talking about some funny and embarrassing things that have happened to us.


Where People Dreams Go to Die

Screenshot_15Water parks are great, they combine the fun of amusement parks with water. Which are originally, an awesome combination, but at my water park it’s just pure dangerous and terrifying. And I went twice. The first time, I had the pleasure of having all my toe skin ripped off, almost drowned, and almost killed a little kid-which, coincidentally, go hand in hand. But first, let me tell you how I lost my swimsuit. The slides there are pretty old and instead of remodeling them, they just make the water pressure stronger which means you slide faster. The genius that designed the rafts left the bottoms open so your butt basically able to scrape against the bottom of the slide, it also made it easier for the water pressure to blast your pants right off. Yep, lost my bottoms.


A few years ago, they really used to go all out in their wave pool. For those of you who don’t know, a wave pool is this giant pool like thing that can create waves like the kind you surf on. They get stronger and larger the deeper you go into the pool and apparently on this day the pool manager had the waves on high because I definitely wasn’t the only one struggling to survive. I bet you’re saying, “Well, why didn’t she just get out of the wave pool, then?” Well, dear friends, here’s the thing: almost death is pretty fun. Especially when you are a teenager with other teenage friends. Anyway, once you hit a wave wrong you are pretty much screwed and will hit the rest of them wrong, making it near impossible to come up for this little thing called oxygen.


As I was scrambling to reach the surface, my lungs burning and my chest tightening (this is dramatic, no?) I felt something. I immediately grasped it and pushed it down as a way to propel myself above water. It was a small child. Of course, the kid was then submerged underwater in lieu of my own safety. In my defense, I couldn’t see or breathe so. Anyway, I got the heck out of there after that. And yes, the kid was perfectly fine.

That Week I Was a Lobster

Have you ever seen an albino person? Snow White? Imagine if they never saw a crack of light in their lives and you would know how pale I am naturally. When I tan, I burn. Back in high school I had the nickname of “Pasty White Girl” and wished to not blend in with walls for a change. I woke up early to tan outside because it gets too hot to tan in the afternoon so I was pretty sleepy. Combine sleepy with lounge = sleep. I fell asleep in the sun, on a Sunday, and my parents forced me to go to school the next day. I. Was. RED. Red like a tomato. But hey, I got a new nickname for a week. Lobster girl, Larry the Lobster, and Lobbo. Oh, kids are cruel.

Threw up in front of Best Buy

Don’t you guys like how I use pretty font to disguise the fact this section is about puke? Alright, for those of you who don’t know what Best Buy is, it’s an electronics store in the United States (pretty much the only big chain store now that Circuit City went under. Anyway, a situation arose where my friends and I had to go to Best Buy and we had just eaten at Long John Silver’s, pretty much the king of greasy fast food. Seriously, your skin and face will be practically dripping grease if you eat a meal there. I had just eaten way too much and was feeling a bit sick BEFORE I ate. Right when we were going into the store we were all laughing and the next thing I knew my inhalation of air came out with puke. Right in front of two of my male friends, I threw up on the sidewalk directly in front of the store.

Menstrual Cramps AND Food Poisoning: A Double Whammy

Ladies, you know what I’m saying here. Now just imagine adding food poisoning on top of all this:


I lost so many different bodily fluids that day, need I say more? Death. It’s what I imagined death to feel like. (Vampire Diaries quote, anyone?) On a visit to my college bookstore too. Oh, and the food poisoning was also from fast food, do you see a recurring theme here?




These are not going to be as exciting as Alise’s. I never go anywhere to do silly things. Mostly I’m just clumsy and hurt myself in ridiculous ways. Like when I managed to  hit the point of my elbow, the very point, on a light switch as I was running down the hallway…

Tripping Up Stairs/Down Gutters/Over Nothing

I don’t walk like I should. Excessive laziness means I can rarely be bothered to pick my feet up. Normally I’m fine, but about once a day I’ll catch my foot on something and almost trip. I never quite face plant. Except last week. I tripped up stairs. On the way to the dining hall. Where everyone was eating. Fortunately no one was really on the stairs or looking at me (I think) and  I laughed off my embarassment. It was a really funny moment. There will come a day I really trip though… Here’s hoping I can cover it up.


Putting My Hand in my Cat’s Furball. Twice. In Two Minutes

The last time I told this story I barely finished it because I was laughing to hard. Basically I was lying on my bed and put my hand on the floor to push myself up or something. Only my hand didn’t meet carpet. Something that felt like a cold banana squished under my hand. I looked down to see what it was and it was a furball. As I scramble to get away from it, I put my hand in something else soft, cold and squishy.

Yeah, there was another fur ball. My sisters and mum were laughing as I cried tears of horror (and laughter. You had to laugh). It was pretty disgusting.

And now I’m studying to be a vet so I can put my hands in worse things.

That One Time I Actually Received a Valentine’s Gift

Six years ago, when I was in year 7 at primary school, I got my fist (and only) Valentine. This is not as nice as it sounds. I had no idea it was going to be there. I just opened my bag after lunch to put my lunch box back in and there was a chocolate rose (tasted great), a card, and some other things I don’t remember. My reaction?

I didn’t understand why I of all people got one! I was freaking out, and not in a good way. Once I found out who had given it to me I freaked out even more because I didn’t like that guy at all and it was just SO WEIRD. I still don’t know why I got it or how I am supposed to react to these things Slkfshdjfskk


Getting Stuck in a Bus Door

I’m not sure if this was a dream or it actually happened, but this goes all the way back to year 5. We were on an excursion to Mount Cootha (I think that’s how you spell it…). Everyone was getting ready to leave, lining up to get onto the bus. Just as I step up the stairs, I am squeezed on both sides. I feel like I can’t breath. Turns out the automatic doors had starting closing for some reason and it really hurt. The driver got the doors open before they really crushed me, but they caused enough pain to make me cry. Then the teachers, after checking I was okay, got up me for not noticing the doors closing and told me to stop crying or something. And everyone looked at me funny when I finally got on the bus.

Well sorry for freaking out after almost being crushed. Nice pleasant end to an excursion. To this day I still hang back from bus doors and wait until there’s enough room for me to stand completely inside them before getting on.

    Hahaha, I’m sorry that you guys had to go through these embarrassing moments, but you guys made me laugh out loud. The almost dead-experience in the swimming pool sounds dangerous! I can be pretty clumsy too (like: fall on my back in the middle of a very busy canteen when I was in my first year and I couldn’t get up because my bag was so heavy :p Or trip on the front porch in front of the complete exam classes. You feel so silly when everybody is laughing at you, haha.)

    • Alise

      Yeah, I went back recently though and noticed that they really toned the waves down, it’s almost no fun at all anymore ha. And I bet it was scarier for the kid I almost drowned xD

      Bahaha, I’m picturing like a turtle upside on its shell trying to get up now. Backpacks are so heavy. Yeah it’s really embarrassing, that’s why I try to laugh it off haha.

  2. Becca @ Nawanda Files

    Oh my gosh! The water park incident(s) sound horrifying! I don’t think I would have the guts to every go back again if I lost my bottoms. I was cringing through that story, and the Simpsons’ gif was just perfect! I don’t think my embarrassing stories can compete on that level, but the first time I went snowboarding, I broke the ski lift (it was a rope that you grab and it pulls you up the hill). I somehow pulled it too far to the left, and the entire thing grunted and broke down. Everyone gave me such bad looks, and I pretty much slid away (on my butt bc I fell). I have never been snowboarding since. And LOL to the furball story! I don’t have a cat, but that sounds pretty gross and funny at the same time.

    • Alise

      Well it took four years to get over it and go back LOL. Ohmygosh, that’s awful. Funny, but awful. That would probably ruin snowboarding for me too. I don’t have a cat either but I can relate because I’ve stepped in puppy poop. Blah.

  3. Jasmine @ Flip That Page

    HAHAHA I should totally feel guilty right now for enjoying this, and feel guilty for not feeling guilty for enjoying this, but you guys, this was funny :D Okay, let me just start by saying I embarrass myself ALL the time. It’s probably not to the extent that I’d hide from civilization, but mostly, I’ll just say something clumsy and not realize it until people are laughing at me already. I’ve also experienced getting stripped bottomless by raging waters! I had to swim around for my bikini bottoms for about a half hour, while keeping things discreet in the process. It was horrible believe me XD I threw up once in an elevator, but I was legit sick at the time, so I had an excuse right? :D I’m a naturally tan person though. I don’t burn red in the sun, I just get ugly tan lines around my neck, and it looks weird for about a week or two. I trip down stairs a lot too! I actually sprained my ankle the last time I did, about a week ago. I don’t have a cat though, so I’m furball free! Anyway, great and entertaining post, you guys :) I’m sorry I had to laugh. HAHAHAHA.

      Thanks, glad you found it humorous :D

      I always laugh at myself if others are laughing at me because I know I said something stupid xD Right? I feel like the people that work at water parks have seen EVERYTHING because stuff like that actually happens a lot. Bahaha, the elevator thing is hilarious, too bad for the person who had to clean that up. I trip down the stairs a lot too, but never got seriously injured. I’ll have to be more careful xD

  4. Sam @ Realm of Fiction

    This is brilliant. I was simultaneously cringing and laughing my way through this post! This —> “I lost so many different bodily fluids that day, need I say more?” It gave me a stitch! And furballs feels like cold squished bananas? *yuck* Though I guess you do learn something new everyday. ;)

    Thanks for sharing, you two!

    Merlin’s beard! I felt so awkward reading all those experiences. Yes, ladies. Even if those didn’t happen to me, I can still feel that all those happened to me. Haha. The furball really made me laugh. Totally happened to me. That was just so yuck! Grrrr.

    One of my most embarrassing moments was when I had my menstruation and it was so heavy that it had stained the back of my pants. I kept walking around unaware that people are already laughing and horrified upon the disgusting sight they were subjected to.

    Thank you so much for being so brave in sharing all these info, awesome ladies. I must admit that although I felt for you, I can’t also help but laugh. Yikes! We always have our fair share of blooper moments. :D

    • Alise

      I feel like everyone that has owned a cat has their own furball story xD

      Yikes, that has totally happened to me as well, although I caught it before anyone else did so I was saved from the mortification. I can’t believe laughed, though! Sounds humiliating!

      Glad you enjoyed it :)

  6. Stephanie (Hopeless Romantics)

    These are too funny! My favorites were the water park one and the tanning story. One of my most embarrassing moments was probably when I was first ever asked out by a guy. He was just a friend and I totally didn’t see it coming. It was so awkward because at first I didn’t even realize he was asking me out. He asked me at work too so there was no escape for me :(

    • Alise

      Thanks! Aw, I would have no idea what to do in a situation like that either, especially sense there was no way you could get away from it. I feel like no matter what you said, it would just be awkward from then on.

  7. Henrietta @ Leisure Reads

    Thanks for sharing these moments with us! Mine would be bumping my head loudly against the printer while feeding the machine with more paper on my first day at work – everyone in the office just stopped doing what they were doing and started asking if I needed to lie down – I guess they thought I had hurt my head badly :P

  8. Rachel @ Unforgettable Books

    This is such a delightful post! I don’t mean I like that all these annoying occurrences happened to both of you. I mean it was delightful to learn about you both. I always am careful now when I go into metro doors, scared if my hand getting hurt or any worst injuries. I love water parks Alise, a kid in a wave pool would freak me out too.

    My embarrassing moments resolve around a uncontrollable bodily function (farting) and spilling ginger ale over a monopoly set after I stroked a deal with another player that gave me ownership of Park Place and the Boardwalk. And tripping, I’m kind of clumsy too Bae.

    • Alise

      I ride a bus every day and never was worried about it closing on me till now either xD I have had some bad experiences with elevators doing the same thing though. I just felt so bad that I pushed him under so I could live LOL

      Yeah, that actually happens to me a lot. Bahaha the ginger ale thing made me laugh so hard. I feel like women are just destined to be clumsy and knock things over.

    • Alise

      Thanks! That is really awkward because I bet it almost looks like a pimple except itches. I would hate that. I recently got bit on my palm and I was dying because no matter what I did it hurt and itched.

  9. Delaney

    AHhh those sound so terrible but is bad to say that I was laughing over your stories? I’m sorry I laughed, that’s not very nice. In exchange that I laughed let me think of some embarrassing stories…
    Okay this is a SITUATION I’m mostly in. It’s when I sit in a classroom and there is a guy staring at me and I got no idea what to do and then I kinda just freeze up and just look at my desk hopping the bell would ring sometime soon. I STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT TO DO!!! ( /)^(\✿) Well let’s see, today me and my friend randomly ran through someone else’s front lawn because they had sprinklers on and we wanted to run through them. Good thing my phone didn’t get wet… OMG I got one.

    In Drumline I couldn’t hit the bass drum (engerizer bunny style) in the center of the drum so my instructor went, “Delaney, do you have your phone on you?”
    And I said, “Yes….” very slowly.
    he said, “Hand it over to me please.”
    So I took out my phone and then handed it to him. He went to the table in front and got a roll of tape like those clear tapes but they are also just as strong as duct tape. He went over to my bass drum and then taped my phone ONTO the bass drum head.
    “There, don’t hit your phone.”
    And I couldn’t even see where I was hitting. ( /)^(\✿) And i hit my phone and it got a little scratched up and yeah, it’s just yeah. ( /)^(\✿) ( /)^(\✿) ( /)^(\✿) Just that awkward moment when everyone is staring at you and the spotlight is DIRECTLY on you. Ahh, terrible and hilarious experience in my opinion.

    Probably I got more…I’m just not remembering them because I wouldn’t want to remember them. >___<

      Ahaha, no, that’s why we shared them!

      xD That sounds like Bec, she doesn’t know what to do or how to feel in a situation like that either.
      That’s good because I would have completely forgot about the safety of my phone in that situation too.

      That’s crazy! You could have broken it, I would have been so mad! I can see why he was doing that to try and teach you but still! Thanks for sharing :D

  10. Tanja

    LOL girls you’ve got me in stitches!! First of Alise I was lucky enough to experience that wonderful combination called Menstrual Cramps and Food Poisoning – it was wonderful. I just fainted twice in the full hospital. Let’s just say that at least 10 doctors was around me. Not fun at all. When it comes to pool I love them and I believe that my element is water as I could spend hours there. Luckily I didn’t experience near drowning.
    Bec I tripped on stairs more than once and yeah I pretty much looked like that penguin :D
    I love your gifs girls! Amazing post! :)

      Oh gosh, it’s awful isn’t it? I almost fainted but I held it together because I was in a public place but dang. I think it’s the worst I’ve ever felt in my life. At least you had people taking care of you, though! :) Thanks!

  11. Jeann @ Happy Indulgence

    HAhahaha oh girls this is a great post! I remember posting one similar a long time ago but I’d be happy if it never resurfaced. I had the same waterslide experience except it was my bikini top….combined with a kid who was using goggles underwater. Oh the shame. To this day I still don’t like waterslides.

    And bwahaha the valentines gift thing made me laugh SO HARD. Best reaction gif ever.

  12. Christina @ Christina Reads YA

    I’ve never been to a water park before, and you’ve made me glad of that fact. All your toe skin ripped off? Drowning? Almost killing a kid? And why, why make the water pressure stronger? Wouldn’t that friction hurt more as you slid down?

    Is the wave pool like the thing that they have at … the Mandelin? or whatever hotel on the Strip in Vegas? They sound like fun, and hey, that kid came out alive! Human propeller to the rescue! And yes. High waves are so much fun. I was at the beach in Newport with a similar situation. I’d stride farther out in the water than my friends because there’s something exhilarating about the larger waves, jumping, riding that high. But yes, I did hit one small, shallow wave wrong and for a moment, I was scrabbling to come to my feet under the water, and my hands were scraping past sand and I wondered whether I’d drown o.O. Riptide is scary as hell too.

    My brother is like you – doesn’t tan, only burns – but he still tries to lay out in the sun while reading. :O at the nickname though! All of the nicknames!! The sunburn must have been painful as all hell! Kids are cruel o.O.

    I really do like the pretty font :). And hey, at least you didn’t puke inside the store. Then it would’ve been a double whammy, no? Unless they were kind enough to not make you pay. I’ve never been to Long John’s Silver but definitely don’t plan to ever in my life thanks to that description lol.

    I’m thinking that fast food chains have a thing against you, Alise.

    I can definitely relate to the clumsiness. I trip over things all the time and bump into walls and laugh myself because uh, was I watching? I didn’t faceplant like you did going up the stairs, but there was one little spot I think I tripped over 35% of the time at my college. On the sidewalk, one step slightly raised over the others. I knew it was there but could never remember o.O.

    Getting gifts you don’t expect and from someone you don’t like is the worst. At least you got tasty candy from that. And dude. So not your fault the bus doors closed on you. What mean teachers. If you’re crying, they shouldn’t yell at you more. That’s so not the way to solve that kind of situation.

    What are some of your embarrassing stories?

    Hmm. My embarrassing stories. Ha, it feels like there should be one for every day — tripping, etc. very much so. I once threw up on the guy sitting next to me on the plane. There was no brown bag in the seat in front of me. My dress is still stained from that incident. And there was of course the time when I was in Lebanon, on the beach, and didn’t realize that a guy had given me his number via the waiter. I thought it was a receipt and handed it to my cousin. Very embarrassing, as he was watching me o.O. My cousin loved telling everyone about how confused I was. Oh, there was the time when I was at the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention – I was a volunteer with my friend – and the former Mr. Romance leaned into me, GOT ALL UP IN MY PERSONAL SPACE, and was like “are those real?” He was referring to my eyes. My eye color. But er, so not necessary. o.O. My friend said I was “romanced” by Mr. Romance. Oh, yes, another story. The Air New Zealand host was hitting on me and I didn’t realize it and had to be told by MY MOTHER, who was standing right behind me, that that’s what he was doing. (Noticing any theme here?)

    • Alise

      Dang, Christina, I think you have won the longest comment award :D Thanks for leaving such an awesome response! I think they made the water pressure faster because in theory, it would make you go down the slide faster, it’s “more fun.”

      Yeah, it is! I think it’s the Mirage though, but I’m not sure because I stayed at New York New York. Right? I love the waves at the beach, but once you miss one it’s hard to recover. One time my mouth was open and SO. MUCH. SALT. I swear I can still taste it.

      Yep, I read and “tan” too! I bet your brother has gotten burnt many times that way!

      Bahaha the thing is, the food is so good even if it is greasy aha. LOL, I wouldn’t say they have something against me, I think it’s just I go so often something is bound to happen eventually!

      I’m the same way, there’s this little dip in the sidewalk at my university and it ALWAYS gets me. Oh wow, on a stranger? I can’t even imagine his response! I think that would be something to laugh about for a long time xD

      Ahahaha, the number thing is quite funny as well, sounds like you are a bit oblivious when it comes to admirers ;) Bec is the same way.

      Okay, I would be SO creeped out if a guy said that to me xD Thanks for sharing your stories!

  13. Melanie (YA Midnight Reads)

    Alise- I threw up on my sister instead of a sidewalk. I was really ill and my sister was sitting on the floor beneath me so when I went to puke in the bucket, I missed and it and part of it flew into her lap. BLEH

    Bec- *high five* I am also very good at tripping over air.

      Bahaha, I think I would puke too if someone puked on me! I have a really weak stomach! I feel like your sister probably thought it was more disgusting than you did ;) Hope she forgave you eventually ;)

  14. Allie @ Little Birdie Books

    Hahahaha oh God. The water park incidents are HILARIOUS. I also nearly drowned in a wave pool once. I got the wind completely knocked out of me and fell back and started flailing my arms around thinking my life was in danger … not my finest moment, especially when my friend reminded me we were in the shallow end and I could, in fact, stand up *ducks head in shame*

    Love the Best Buy one too. My friend (who will probably kill me if she ever knows I’ve posted this online) once threw up INSIDE Waitrose, which is this very posh upper-class ‘supermarket’ in the UK. Worst thing was that she threw up on herself and so had to walk around with a wet shirt because we were busy having lunch in the store cafe.

      BAHAHA! But hey, I can’t blame you because when you are running out of oxygen you tend not to think xD Wave pools are crazy. Maybe that’s why everyone likes them!

      Hahaha oh gosh, that sounds so embarrassing, having to walk around like that. I would have been humiliated!

  15. Savindi @ The Streetlight Reader

    Oh my, talk about having a series of unfortunate events. I’ve never been to a Waterpark before, but I think even I’m a bit apprehensive after hearing your story lol! I’m naturally dark skinned but when I went to Sri Lanka a few years back to visit my grandparents my grandma said to me one day “Savindi darling, you’ve gotten darker!” and I was looking at her and thinking “Well obviously grams, I’m out in the sun all day! Of course I’m going to be darker.”

    I think one of the most embarrassing things that happened to me was when I walked into the glass wall of Lenscrafters instead of thinking it’s the door. But I have an excuse! I had to take a blood test that morning so I had to fast the night before and I had no liquids or solids. So by the time my blood test was done I was starving and I did at the mall, but I don’t think it was enough food, I guess I really did need new glasses in the end, but I didn’t get them at Lenscrafters lol.

      Aha, don’t be! I’m just unlucky when it comes to waterparks. Although a lot of people seem to have their share of waterpark horror stories as well. Sounds like you tan quite easy, my friend is like that and I am so jealous!

      Bahaha! It’s even more humorous because it was an eyeglass place xD I don’t think I have ever walked into a glass door but that sounds painful and funny at the same time! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Sunny

    Oh my gosh, this is hilarious and made my whole week! Alise, your stories…fab. Just absolutely awesome. I almost snorted when I read the kid wave pool story, no joke. Bec, I’m right there with you on tripping up or down the stairs. Usually it’s going up. Love. I just adore this post so much. Thanks for the laughs!

    (And yes, I have so many embarrassing stories, but fortunately blanking right now:)

    “But first, let me tell you how I lost my swimsuit.” – I knew this was going to be a good post. I know it must have sucked especially since you are a girl but it is a little amusing at this end. I’ve been to a couple of water parks myself but have never experienced anything like you have. I guess it’s because I’ve never gone one those ridiculously high and “thrilling” – If you can call facing possible horror to be thrilling.
    I have been also been made fun of being very pasty white. One winter a girl even asked me if I was alright because I was literally ghost white and had black circles under my eyes. And I live in Florida… And when I do get tan I get really red in the face first so they like to comment on that too. I know your pain!!!!
    Puking in front of friends must suck but puking in front of an entire class! – now that’s horrendous. I was feeling sick and it was gym… Didn’t want to hop anymore but I made myself hop one more time and BAM! it’s everywhere. And I was in the front next to the coach. Thanks God nothing landed on him. There were two classes there so about 70 kids saw me puking my guts out.
    Laughing Out Loud with the period/food poisoning fiasco because I could just imagine. :D
    I trip over my own too feet or just randomly too.
    I’ve never seen a furball. It doesn’t seem real and I hope I never have to discover that slimy feeling.
    Your teachers are… fill in the blank. What’s wrong with them!? Ugh.
    Another embarrassing story I have… I got hit by a banana twice in the face. One because my banana slipped off and hit a kid’s elbow and I laughed while I know I should have said something then WHAM! right in the face. Than out of pure blinding anger I threw it at his friend and he hit me in the face too… I hate those guys. I also have gotten hit by a couple of volleyballs in the face so maybe my face is a magnet for those type of things?
    Fantastic post ^__^ Brightened up my day.

      That is the WORST thing about being naturally pale, having your eyes look like a zombie. I can not get rid of my dark circles no matter what I do. I feel like it’s even easier to burn in Florida because of the humidity.

      Oh wow that sounds mortifying! I would beg my parents to transfer schools if that happened to me! How can you recover from that? LOL

      Hahaha, that’s one thing I can say never happened to me-banana in the face xD I HAVE been hit by volleyballs as well, though!

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it :3

    OMG, you made me laugh so much! Specially with the furball haha. I’m a vet too so furball definitely isn’t the worse thing you are going to touch hehe. But I couldn’t stop laughing because my dog always do that but with pee…He always decides to pee in places I will walk barefoot.

    I’ve been a lobster too…sadly many times in my life. And my mother made me go to school like that….I still can’t believe her. Kids are mean.

      Yeah, animals can do some pretty gross things LOL. That’s awesome, I’ve been going to school for a Biology degree and want to do something with animals but I’m not sure I could handle them in pain.

      Right? I feel like they are trying to teach a lesson by letting us suffer all that humiliation!

    Oh wow, these are some embarrassing stories!! I tend to hurt myself in really random ways, so I suppose those are technically embarrassing moments…but I find it all really funny nowadays. For example, I was in a play in the 8th grade and I was “leaping” – part of dance routine we were learning – and I ended up bending my ankle wrong and fracturing it. I heard a lot of “break a leg! Oh wait, you already did” around that time. LOL

      Yeah, it’s good to find humor in that :) Oh wow, sounds painful! Ahaha, I think I might make a joke that that so I can’t really say anything LOL

    These stories made me giggle! And unfortunately they’re all too familiar. I’ve definitely puked in front of friends before, and it is somehow always worse in front of guys, even if they’re just friends and not anyone you’re hoping to make out with. It’s still mortifying! And oh yes, I have experienced the death trap that is the wave machine at a water park. I barely escaped with my life! :-)

      Yeah because you know even if they are friends they will never forget that image of you puking out of their heads LOL. Wave pools really are death traps!

    Oh Oh, I LOVE the Friends gif!!! So perfect!

    I can kind of relate to the valentine incident. There was this guy in freshman year who was very interested in me and kept asking for dates, and I made ridiculous excuse everytime (because he was so freaking weird) and even a deaf person would have got the message, but apparently this guy never did! Now that I think about it, this is nothing like your valentine’s story. Oh well, you learned a random story about me :)

    I’ve been DYING her, because of all the gifs. Especially the “uterus” punch one. Ohmygod I can totally relate. Last week I was on that time of the month, and I was so irritable because I felt like my uterus was trying to kill itself! I almost slapped one of my best friends because he was annoying me so much! Haha, these stories just made my day an un-stressed me for my tests tomorrow.

    Thanks :D

    This post was a lot of fun to read through- though vomiting is horrid and I do sympathise! (Also, not entirely sure how to feel about the hair balls situation.)
    I honestly don’t think things like this have ever happened to me, or if they have I’ve permanently blanked them out, though the other day I did cough and look around to find that my hand had recieved the majority of a small blood nose, which was very confusing! Thank you both for sharing, I really loved the gifs!
