These flubs lead to extreme embarrassment
In fifth grade we were at an assembly where they told a story and would hold up cards for the audience to yell. When they held the card that said “GASP” everyone gasped while I screamed the word gasp as loud as I have ever screamed anything in my life. (larksideoftheloon)
Mentioning the Unmentionable
My wife and I were having dinner with her boss (B) and B’s husband and new baby. The baby had a loose pocket of skin on her head. My wife had mentioned it before, so I was aware but not really thinking about it. I couldn’t see it at the angle that the baby was being held at.
B moved the baby to hold her with the other arm, and I saw it move. It was like a large, fleshy blister. It covered half of the back of her head and was partially full of fluid. As the baby was moved, it sloshed.
I quietly exclaimed, “That baby needs a hat!” B shot daggers out of her eyes at me while her husband suppressed a laugh. (Nesman64)
The Real World
Do you remember that one episode of Spongebob where Squidward is in a talent show and no one will clap for him, but then when Spongebob comes out to mop the floor, everyone cheers?
Well one time in college, I was at “Mr. (My College),” and after one of the acts, this tiny nerdy guy came out to mop the stage because there was spilled water or something. I screamed, “Yeah! Go Spongebob,” and the auditorium went silent. And everyone around me turned and stared. I left shortly after. (SarahSparrow16)
