“What was your most embarrassing moment as a child?”
It is kind of a toss up.
I was in 2nd grade. I had orange juice and oatmeal for breakfast. Got to school, and started to not feel well. Asked the teacher if I could go to the bathroom because I felt like I may puke. She told me no! I turned around and puked in her empty, metal trash can. The whole class was like, “Ugghhhh!!!” all at the same time. I’ll never forget the sound it made. And how badly everyone made me feel for “being gross”… And on top of all that, my teacher was pissed off at me over it and made me go dump it and clean it out … 🤷♀️
Then there was that time in 3rd grade when I was sitting in math class, and all of a sudden my face got hot. Then it started to itch and burn. Everyone was looking at me funny. I was getting very uncomfortable between all the staring and how I was feeling.
My teacher asked me if I’d been in the woods lately. I answered with a yes, and she sent me to the nurse.
It was poison oak. All over my face, my neck, my hands, my arms, and my legs… They called my mom to tell her they needed to send me home. She made me walk LOL. I suffered for days.
Once back in school, several of the other kids had had it, or poison ivy, so it was no longer funny, and I actually got several apologies…
But the embarrassment of that morning at school has always stayed with me. Ugh.
Until next time … xoxo
