Topic: Embaressing Stories
When my cousin came over on Christmas last year, she brought me a present, but I hadn’t gotten one for her. While she was talking to my mom, I ran to my room to find something to give her. Thankfully, I found a purse I’d received as a gift but never really used, so I quickly wrapped it and stuck it under the tree. When my cousin opened it, she just sat there looking sort of confused, then finally said, “Uh, thanks.” Suddenly I remembered where I’d gotten the purse: Her family had given it to me the year before!
Mall of Humiliation
My friend and I were walking around the mall while waiting for my friend’s mom, who was getting a manicure. We were bored, so we went into a department store and started putting the shirts where the pillows went, and the men’s clothes where the women’s clothes were supposed to be. Wherever we went, we tried to mix everything up. We got a little carried away, though: We ended up in a very expensive electronics store, switching the price tags on the video cameras—and we got caught! The rest of the time we were in the mall, a security guard followed us around, acting like we were trying to steal things! I was so embarrassed!
