Oh so funny, but oh so embarrassing.
Okay, now for my oh so embarrassing moment. In High School English class we were supposed to recite from Julius Caesar the "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ear" speech, and I practiced, and memorized, and worked on it over and over, at home, with friends, by myself. I was ready. Now mind you, I don't do well at giving speeches, I get really nervous before a group of people and it doesn't matter if they are all my friends or strangers, same horrible feeling overcomes me (get where this is going yet?? bet you don't!!!) All my friends got called to do the same speech before me and they all did amazing!! Not a word missed, not a stutter heard, they were loud and proud. But then it was my turn "Dannye, please come to the front of the room..." I stood up, started to walk to the front of the room, and got really light headed (and apparently quite pale faced too) so the wonderful teacher asked me to quickly sit back down, which I happily complied with. Never have I passed out before, but let me tell you I think I may have if I had to go to the front of the class and stand in front of all those people (30 friends/acquaintances) and recite those words, the words I knew. I did have to give my speech, but luckily I only had to stand in front of the teacher, after class, and passed with flying colors (and all the color in my face too). My friends laughed at me for a few days about it, finding it quite funny that even though I am an easy going person, who is very outgoing, I can't stand in front of a roomful of people I know and talk to them without freaking out. I never got over that fear, but hey I don't plan on becoming a public speaker anytime soon (unless of course you count this blog as public speaking, this I can do, standing on my head!!! hehehe).
Come on now, share something embarrassing that happened to you! I won't tell anyone (wink, wink).
