erm, mmm, yea

awkward moments.

I've had my fair share of them, and to be honest, they make for a good laugh after (:
Often I find the most awkward situations to be in are those that occur most unexpectedly.
I'll share with you a few top awkward moments (that I myself have experienced), but only because I love you (;


1. When a stranger beside you on the bus is nodding off to sleep very precariously near you, threatening to fall asleep on your shoulder at any given moment.

2. Having a drop a big one in a public toilet while a queue of impatient women wait outside the stalls

3. A coughing fit in the middle of a musical/concert/performance of any kind

4. Being spoken to VERY SLOWLY because people automatically assume that Asian International students cannot speak/understand English.

5. Noticing that your good guy-friends fly is open and grappling with whether or not to tell because he'll probably go away thinking "Why was she looking there to begin with, anyway?!"


So, in the spirit of being open and honest and also because you've already laughed at my expense,
what are some of the most awkward situations that YOU have ever been in?

Sleeping with my mouth open/ doing that falling-into-deep-sleep-jerk on public transport.

Food in my teeth.

Talking in my sleep when someone else is in the room. I've been known to go on and on.

And one time, when I was little, I peed on my brand new white Keds. Then went and saw a show. Gross? Yes.

eeek! good ones! When I was in 4th grade, I was in the bathroom at school in a stall with no toilet paper. There was no one else in there so WITH MY SHORTS DOWN AROUND MY KNEES I walked out of the stall to the next one to grab some paper ...at that moment, a girl ran into the bathroom with a boy chasing her. They both saw me. I was mortified! lol

Haha. Those were some great moments. :D

I think the worst one for me was when I was out somewhere with friends and made a comment about a woman that had just walked by only to have one of my friends tell me it was a man.

Yeah. That was awkward. But I think the man was worse off than me...

My boyfriends parents dog tried to hump my leg. What made this more embarrassing was that it was one of the first few times I had actually met my boyfriends parents, and it was a female dog. Needless to say the dog and I aren't friends! x

aaww i love you Adel! what an awesome post. i will have to take the day to think about my response. need to be getting ready for work. but omg #4 made me laugh thinking about my grandma. I hate it! she assumes all the hispanics even the ones that have worked for her for years dont speek english but they do. and she insists on trying to speek her terrible spanih to them. and i kno alot of times thy pretend they dont speek english.

its funnier still because typically europeans or anyone except americans. speek several languages. right? (i'm american and stand other Americans. i hate that they think everyone should speek english. well maybe everyone should seek italian or french theyre so much more beautiful thats for sure.)

sorryb for the mini rant. lol

Haha, my most awkward moment must have been when I fell off a chair, broke off my tooth, and was covered in blood - all while surrounded by coworkers. Very smooth.
