10. Describe your most embarrassing moment.

That crushing feeling in my chest. I hold my breath and turn away. It's usually when I say something dumb. I cannot think of a recent instance, but I do recall one from my childhood.

My family was staying at a hotel somewhere and it had a pool, so we were playing in it. My parents, however, were in the hot tub. I begged my dad several times to come to the pool and play with me, but so far he hadn't moved. So I was playing by myself in the shallow part and then I saw him coming over! I was excited and ran to him hugging him. But it wasn't him. It was a very confused and uncomfortable man who just so happened to also have black swim trunks.

I think I died then.

That would be pretty embarrassing for a kid. I'm sure the "surrogate dad" understood the mistake!

I did this exercise once, UGH, you reminded me!
