Remember the blog project I did last year with three other women? Well, Froggie decided to resurrect it with me and we each got to invite another friend to join us. She invited a mutual friend (someone I met through her) and I invited a friend whose blog I really enjoy reading. So now it's Froggie, Mom of Many, Moma Rock and Merrylandgirl. Hope you enjoy the topics that we'll be exploring!
This week, Moma Rock picked the topic: The most embarrassing moment I've ever had
(Oddly enough, I was just watching an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" where everyone shared their most embarrassing moment.)
Before reading ahead, first see what everyone else had to say on this topic:
Mom of Many
When I was a freshman in high school, I was cast in the winter play. Ironically (and you'll see why soon), it was "Up the Down Staircase." I had a lot of fun being part of this production, even though I had a pretty minor role. I did have speaking lines and quite a few appearances on stage throughout the show. What made my experience the most memorable was my crush object at the time. His name was Scott and he was a senior. He had a rebellious look to him, which I found attractive. He was also really nice, which added to the crush factor.
Fast forward to the dress rehearsal. Toward the end of the first act, I was to exit off the stairs at the side of the stage. I somehow managed to trip and fall right into a brick wall by the exit doors, banging up my nose as a result. I had a killer headache and a nosebleed from that. As I was knocking on the dressing room door to be let in (they had privacy issues and kept it locked), I saw Scott going into his dressing room. He stopped and stared at me for a moment first. I was mortified! Then we were hanging out in the little theater (a room where classes and smaller plays took place). Scott decided to tell me that he saw me bleed. (He did say it that way too..."I saw you bleed.") Then another girl asked me if I was crying (which I was about to do) when he told her that I was brave and wouldn't cry. That definitely stopped me. The other funny thing that happened was that the director was giving everyone notes and gave me one that said "You fell." (Really?!? I thought that was in the script! :P)
At the end of the school year, Scott wrote a really nice message in my yearbook. Then I didn't see him again until 1993, when we were both at our sisters' junior high graduation. He looked more clean cut, but was still cute. Later, we moved to a house that was right behind his, but he wasn't living there at the time. I don't know what ever became of him and doubt I'll ever find out. I just appreciate that he didn't make fun of me for almost breaking my nose. Definitely worthy of my first high school crush. :)
