Hello, my name is Allyson, otherwise known as Awkward. It seems that I can’t go one day without doing/saying something completely weird, often (if not always) followed by a baffled look from someone else. Here’s just a few Awkward Moment Highlights from over the past few months:
New Coworker: “Hey!”
Me: “Good and you?”
Note: This was our first conversation…
-Like a week later, after I came back from the mountains-
Other Coworker: “How was your vacation?”
Me: “Good and yours?”
Note: She didn’t go on a vacation…
Me: *Gets a strike while bowling*
Boyfriend’s Friend: “Hey, that was awesome!” *Holds out hand for high-five, palm up to me like a handshake*
Me: *Slaps the back of his hand*
Note: He’s brought this up in conversation since then…
In the past, I have also hit my head on a door knob, tripped on a broken sidewalk in high school and fell on my face (apparently it looked so bad someone thought I was having a seizure), among hundreds of other things. I’m slowly coming to accept that my life is a flurry of awkward moments lightly sprinkled in with occasional, socially acceptable, seconds. Yeah, I said seconds.
Have any awkward moments you’d like to share?
