What was one of your most embarrassing moments in high school?

A.         FRESHMAN FAIL

Falling down the stairs the first day of freshman year.

 

B.         RECKLESS RETREAT         

I called a guy to ask him out and he said no because he got back together with his ex-girlfriend. The next day when I saw him, I tried to be casual and chat while slowly walking away. I ended up face-planting into a door and then painfully sliding out of the room. But the guy and his girlfriend are now married with children, so it worked out for them.

 

C.        STINKY STEP

Walking down a small hill, slipping on a mound of dog poop, and face planting into the ground because of the weight of my backpack. It was only in front a couple close friends. Worst part was not knowing I had slipped on dog poop until math class the next day.

 

D.        SLIPPERY SLOPE

Pulling the hurdles from a closet and walking them down a big hill to set up for track practice, and falling. When I looked up, the entire track team had come outside just in time to see me fall down the hill - including the boy that I had a crush on.

E.         FENCE FACE

Running into a fence face-first during one of my games. I had chain link fence marks on my forehead for a week and had to wear a neck brace as well. One of my best friends hit the ball that led to the injury. It was a tough week at school.
