My Most Embarrassing Moment
I have had a great many embarrassing moments in my life. Some of the most embarrassing have occurred while I was attending school. One of these moments happened in high school during my sophomore year. I remember it very well because I got conned into doing a stunt. It made me the center of attention, and I made an unforgettable moment at my school.
Now days when a kid wants another kid to do something they are too scared to do, they dare them to do a stunt. When the kid says no, no one can just leave it alone. Usually you hear I double dog dare you. To most kids when people says double dog dare it is very hard to turn down. Let’s just say in my instance I got double dog dared to dance on a lunchroom table in my strict Christian high school when no teachers were there.
So I finally got the courage to get up all by myself and dance in my long skirt on the lunchroom table. Someone put music on from their cell phone, and I was just dancing away. All the students were laughing until my teachers, my principal, and the pastor came through the lunchroom doors. I did not even know what to do, so I just froze and stood on top of the table. The lunchroom was so quite you could have even heard a pin drop.
I definitely will never forget that moment, especially when I was sitting in the pastor’s office as my parents got called to come up to the school. I ended up getting in school suspension for three days because my school does not think dancing is right. At least I made a moment no one in that lunchroom will ever forget. For my school that was a pretty big deal, and to this day the students that were there applaud me for it, and I still can’t figure that out.
I honestly will never forget that moment. I never have really been that embarrassed in such a long time. I still ask myself to this day what I was thinking. All I could come up with is that I was young and stupid. That was the day I learned never to...
