To say that I’ve had my share of awkward moments is an understatement.
The awkward situations I’d get myself into used to eat me alive with anxiety and worry afterwards. What are people going to think of me? Why did I say/do that?! But now I’ve learned to roll with the punches and not get stuck with the unnecessary stress of coping with an awkward event.
My most awkward account? When I first started dating my partner, and we got to the stage of staying over night at each other’s places, I made the mistake of staying in my underwear the morning after when we stayed over night at his mom’s house. He left early that morning to go check on his mom at work at their donut shop and of course, the most awkward thing that could ever happen, happened. His grandma came in to his room to check up on him, and there I lay, in my bra and panties, blankets off. She doesn’t speak a lot of English and really, there were no words necessary at that point. She took one look at me, and ever so slowly walked out of the room, one foot after the other, backwards, her eyes burning through my skin.
It was horrible.
What’s your most memorable awkward situation you’ve been in? How did you survive it?
