      What embarrasses me many times is my speech patterns. I skip words in a sentence. That may be why I like writing. When in a conversation especially with professional or career topics I simply will jump passed words and sometimes a chunk of  a sentence. That usually generates a frown and I become embarrassed, even though friends overlook it.

      Another thing that embarrasses me is when I do not understand what a person says and ask with some means to clarify. More than not a person thinks I was not paying attention when I simply did not understand what they said. Being a writer I discover as I become more experienced there are more than one meaning with a word. I get confused with meaning and have to clarify.

        Forgetting the name of a person  I  met before or not remembering the right word while speaking to some one embarrass me the most.

          Same for me. I don't think they understand that it's my brain and not that I don't value knowing them. So awkward. hmm

            Have you ever gone to introduce someone you've known for YEARS to someone else and couldn't remember the name of the person you knew? I've done that... You feel it coming, you're like "I'm about to get to the part where I say their name... nothing's coming... Come on! Surely if I just keep going it's gonna be there by the time I... DOH!" Then you just stand there horrified like you just slit their pet's throat in front of their child. And the weird part is no one helps you. They just stare at you like a train wreck in motion. It's enough to make you never leave the house again.

    forgetting names -- ditto that. What's worse in my opinion is calling someone by a different name and not realizing my mistake until much after the conversation has finished. Makes me feel like a royal asshat.

    When your skirt is on the short side and the wind is on the gusty side... I've never enjoyed that moment.
