Awkward Moments Day

I saw on a Twitter post from Booksamillion that today is Awkward Moments Day. Not sure if that's a real calendar day or just one they invented, but I like the idea of it, regardless.

So, yeahhhhh, awkward moments. I've had about a billion of those in my lifetime so far--like, the many times I've told a joke that fell utterly flat on a crowd. hah, that's always fun. Or back when I was dating, having the guy try to kiss me, but me not wanting it and desperately trying to think of a way to get out of it.

I'm sure I'll have a billion more as time goes on, because that's part of being human--having those moments that make you flinch.

High school's basically one big fat awkward moment for many people. I had lots of them, myself. I remember this one guy, a friend of mine, had bought me a dozen beautiful roses for Valentine's day--they'd announced over the loudspeaker for me to go to the office and pick them up. Unfortunately, I didn't really like him in that way. But I still thanked him for the lovely flowers.

What about you? Any good awkward moments you want to share on Awkward Moments Day? And please don't let my blog post be awkwardly uncommented on--that would be just TOO ironic for me. haha


  1. Ok, I'll post, and save you from feeling awkward. lol

    Yes, I have had many awkward times in my life. Its the thing that you can look back on and laugh about. Sometimes after a week, some take much, much longer.

  2. LOL thank you, Debra!!

    Yes, good call--it's usually funny to look back on those awkward moments...once the awkwardness has gone away, of course. :D

  3. Ooh the awkward-fest that is high school. All four years were uncomfortable if you want to know the truth. You couldn't pay me to do it again! (Ok, you could but it would take a LOT!)

  4. There really isn't enough space on the internet...

  5. Beauty Salon
