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!
