Day 28…My most embarrassing moment
I think that nearly every teenager/young adult has a couple of these in their rearview mirror. I could honestly think of a few situations just off the top of my head. Nonetheless, for the sake of this post, I’ve narrowed it down to a situation that happened to me during sophomore year.
During my 10th grade year, I joined the yearbook staff. Thankfully, I soon found that most of the other students were really nice and I began talking with one of the guys in the group. We became friends pretty quickly, and talked about everything from movies to school. Nonetheless, we eventually got to a point where we were running out of topics
If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you may remember that I’m horrible at small talk. I was grasping for literally anything to talk about, so I asked the lamest question in the book: “What’s you’re favorite color?”
I knew the question was pathetic, but I didn’t think there was anything problematic about the question.
I was dead wrong. To this day, I still remember his reply.
I had just asked a person who was colorblind their favorite color.
I’m pretty sure I apologized about twenty times after that.
To make matters worse, I remembered after the fact that he had already told me about that a couple of days ago, but in that moment, it had completely slipped my mind.
Thankfully, he was cool about it, and we’re still friends to this day. But, at the time, it was pretty awkward.
I suppose it’s moments like this that serve as a good reminder of our humanness. It’s amazing how many awkward situations we can manage to find (or put) ourselves in. I know I’ve had my fair share of “awkward moments”
