    What is the most embarrassing moment in your life and How did you handle it?

    I was a junior at a new High School and didn't know anybody yet. I was able to join the school Drumline in time to make the band camp and first school performance. At the performance, I was marching backward and fell. The drums hit me in the face (going through my upper lip - still have a scar by the way!) but I got right back up and kept playing. The other drummers yelled at me to get off the field because I had blood all over my face. Once I left the field, I realized how many people saw it. Everyone in the stands saw what happened. I laughed it off when people mentioned it in the future.

    I do not remember any moments that embarressed me, but I don't think anyone is perfect. We all make mistakes because we are human. What is important is to learn from them, and to try to do better. God Bless You.

    There are probably many, but one that sticks in my mine goes like this.
    We moved house which then involves all the normal things as registering Tel, Elec,Yourself and all those other small jobs a new. But you have to also find a new Doctor. I registered with the new Dr. and was told that i had an appointment in three days time. My Wife kept on laughing at me and cracking little jokes and waving her middle finger in the air. I don't know was i stupid, dumb, or just plain nieve, but it never clicked what she was telling me.
    Doctor's day came and you do all the normal things. Shower, clean underware, and so on. My wife was really enjoying herself. I was called in to see my new Doctor and after a bit of form filling was asked to undress. Was allowed to leave my underpants on to save my embarrassment.The Dr. did all the normal checking of lungs,heart,kidney and so on.Checked my skin, ears, eyes and then asked me to turn around and bend over. As i had a quick look behind me i got the shock a my live, he was pulling rubber gloves on and greasing one finger. I'm bent over as red as a beetroot and the Dr. checking my insides. That was the first time I'd had an internal examination, and that's when the penny dropped and explained why my wife was having so much fun.Very embarrassing indeed.

    My life is one long string of embarrassing moments. I find that the ostrich technique works good for me. I´ve designed and made my own portable sandbox, so I can go places!
