Truth Thursday: My Most Embarrassing Moment

I've had many of these over the course of my meager 28 years on this earth, but the most embarrassing probably comes straight out of 1998.

*waves* Hello Middle School, kinda sheltered version of myself.

Science class. Not the bane of my existence, but certainly not something I excelled at. I was more of an artsy type. Anyway, in middle school we had to give a presentation about some form of cancer. I have no idea what mine was...or what any body else did, except ONE. Ever heard of testicular cancer? I needed a little help with that one.

After giving your well researched, practiced, speech it's obligatory to ask the class if they have any questions. Sounds good right. Usually people are mildly curious about this or that. Well, I'm looking around and nobody is asking the most valid question in my mind...so I raise my hand.

12 year old self: "What's a testicle?"

Student giving presentation looks around, probably not sure how to answer such a stupid question.

Teacher: "Heather, we'll discuss that later."

Middle School Harlot: "They're balls, Heather."

*Me smiling and nodding*

You can bet your behind I never raised my hand for a question like that again! I had no idea what I had asked!

So, what's the most embarrassing thing to happen to you? Maybe something similar. I have a few more stories like this as my naive-sheltered-ego learned what a lot of words meant, lulz!

  1. This just made my day. :D Adorable. My most embarrassing moment? Going to the bathroom at sunday school when I was 7 and walking all the way to the front of the church with my dress tucked in my underwear. Utterly embarrassing. Now I can laugh about it. lol

  2. Awww poor Heather. I was introduced to that kind of talk by my older cousin. Otherwise, I would have done the same thing as you!
