March 18th

TODAY IS:

NATIONAL AWKWARD MOMENTS DAY – there are a lot of National Day designations for today but this one caught my attention.  I intensely dislike awkward situations and have had my fair share.  The awkward trip, handshake and use of a wrong name are inevitable.  I have even had the back of my skirt stuffed in my pantyhose at my workplace.

But the awkward moment that comes to mind is when I am saying hello to a male acquaintance.  I reach my hand out for a standard shake and realize that he is moving in for a kiss on the lips.  It then becomes an incredibly awkward dance of avoidance.  I end up holding my arm as straight as possible to maintain distance at all costs.   This straight-arm technique is handy but it really sends a message, “you just made this weird”.  That weirdness lasts the whole time we are chatting.  Awkward!

What is your favourite awkward moment?
