Awkward Moments

Things that are awkward in life:
  • When you're walking past a tennis court and the ball lands right at your feet and you have to throw it over the fence so that people playing can use it again. I'm always afraid I'm gunna suck at throwing and not make it over the fence. The same goes for having to throw back a frisbee when it's landed at your feet
  • Trying to take someone's photograph when they clearly don't know what to do in front of a camera
  • Photo shoots in general
  • When you accidently walk in on someone going to the bathroom
  • When you walk into a dressing room expecting it to be empty because the door was open
  • Men in the bra section of a department store
  • The next time you see someone after they've gotten married
  • The last time you see that same person before they drive away after the reception
  • The moment after a first kiss
  • ::stolen from Ashley Sellers:: That time in a movie theater right after the movie ends. 
  • Getting underwear from your parents at Christmas
  • Meeting new people
  • The first day of classes in college
  • Running on the beach
  • Bathing suits
  • Hearing Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" when you're shopping with your mom, dad, or boyfriend
  • Figuring out what to get your new boyfriend for either his birthday or Christmas
  • Skype
  • The shuffle option on iPod's at a party when you forgot that you downloaded that Miley Cyrus song as a gag for your friend
  • Seeing someone who's your friend on facebook whom you've never actually spoken to in person. Do you say hi, my name is _____ or do you treat it like you guys have already been friends?
  • Not being introduced to someone in a group and then you see them next week at the mall and you wonder whether you should acknowledge their existence or just get out your phone
  • Those good looking hispanic men who try to sell you perfume or touch your hands at the mall kiosks
  • Being shown around a house
  • Not knowing how to shut off your own car alarm
  • Trying to get to your car in public when it's raining and you don't have an umbrella. Do you run or do you play it cool like, it's ok that I'm getting wet, cuz I don't care about those things!
  • That first 30 minutes of a road trip with people you don't know that well
  • When you're a natural hugger and you meet someone and by the end of the night, you don't know whether to hug that person goodbye or not because you don't want to seem like a creep
  • First Dates

And this is all I can think of for now. Feel free to comment with more of your own awkward moments.

Lol yessss thanks for the shout out. I had a game with Andy and Kristen that we'd make money every time there was an awkward moment. I was rich.
