The Grey Matters

Welp, That Was Embarrassing

Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.

I am good at embarrassing moments. They happen to me all the time.

Excitedly congratulating a NOT pregnant woman on her upcoming baby? I’ve done that.

Had spinach in my teeth for an entire conversation? I’ve done that, too.

And then there was the time I sat on a bench, which wasn’t actually a bench at all, and it snapped in half. Always double check to see if the “bench” you’re about to sit on is actually a flimsy display shelf.

broken bench. we left.

I’ve been nervous embarrassed, shy embarrassed, and plain old embarrassed embarrassed.

Now I’m going to stop talking about embarrassing moments. Instead, I’ll just share a cool talent I have.

Yes, it’s cool. I can use it to trick people into thinking my arm is broken. I can reach around corners.

My arms, which usually look like this…

writing, new writer, fiction

normal, nice arms

Can also look like this….

hyper extension, writing

no joke

Wanna see a closer look?

writing, fiction, new writer

THIS feels like my arm is straight. It’s normal for me!

Okay. Now you know a little bit more about me.

Tell me something about you!

<3 Lou

  1. That’s so weird! Your arms look crazy. I don’t have any odd talents like that. I’m REALLY bad at winking, though. Jordan always makes fun of me. Does that count as something interesting? Probably not.

  2. I can raise two eyebrows or my right one only but can’t raise the left one without raising them both. You’re gonna try it, aren’t you? Let me know the results!

  3. I used to be able to turn my eye lid out but can’t do it anymore.
