An entry in another thread gave me this idea. I'm sure you've had embarrassing moments while performing, or just in everyday life. I'll start if you guys promise to follow so I don't sit here alone red faced. Oh, thank you Katlaf, I knew you'd agree!

I used to do portrait photography for a living. I had my studio set up in a church one day, and was posing two brothers. These guys were young handsome youths and it was easy to engage them in conversation. I posed them chatting all the while.

In response to one fellow commenting that something or other was a pain, I wanted to agree. I was going to say, "Yeah, it's a pain in the butt". But my mind racing forward thought, I'm in a church, I should say neck, not butt. Much to my dismay, what came out of my mouth was a hybrid of the two words: "Yeah, it's a pain in the nut".

What's a girl to say after that? I got some wonderfully happy expressions from the fellows, but I wished for the rest of their sitting that the earth would open up and swallow me.

OK, I'm sitting here red faced and all alone. It's your turn!

I used to work with folks who were losing their vision, and was doing a home visit with a woman in her late 70s who I had come to think of as quite religeous and pretty humorless. She had an ancient and well-loved pair of black and white cats and generally seemed to love animals. One day as I was leaving her house, a big yellow tiger cat tried to slip in as I opened the door. Without thinking I said Gee, I guess he knows a good cat house when he sees one. About two seconds after the remark I realized what I had said and was torn between wanting to sink beneath the porch floor of that double wide trailor, and wanting to burst out laughing. The laughter won. My strait laced student also burst out laughing and we had a much more relaxed relationship after that.

Okay, Margarita, you can quit blushing now.:-)

I was about 13. My brother and I went to the Easter service at the Episcopal church he always went to. It was in the banana belt of Colorado, Grand Junction, already hot and no breath of air; no windows open, incense, kneeling on the prayer benches; droning on; cloying smell of lillies; next thing I knew I had keeled over like a felled log, passed out cold. The whole place was totally silent; ushers ran to open windows; my poor brother, not very practical anyway, wasn't sure what to do with a little sister who comported herself in such a manner; and I wanted to die from embarassment! They all fanned me and helped me back into my seat. If I remember right, I didn't do anymore kneeling that service.

Mmmmmm, Easter must mean something for me. About 3 yrs. later, the police came to our house on Easter to talk to mom about the fmaily car scraping someone else's car in a parking lot where she got her hair done. She covered for me by telling them I didn't know I'd done it, because I had the windows rolled up and the radio on and was just moving it for her while she was inside. She never did ask me if I knew; I did, but was too scared to tell. You can bet after the long dusty trails of the cops' car left that day, Iw as extra careful fromt hen on. Thanks, Mom.

Susan: what a great ice breaker! Kat: I thought Easter was about rising up, not keeling over! (I'm sitting here chuckling)

Here's another photography story:

I posed this elderly couple, and the gentleman exclaimed that the best picture he ever took (was taken of him) was with a fish. Obviously, he is an avid fisherman. But without missing a beat, I said "That doesn't say much for your wife, does it?"

Again, I wished the ground would open up and swallow me. But fortunately, I got only a couple of blank stares as the wise ass comment went clean over their heads.

Once it's said, you can't exactly take it back.

Hi

I know of two embarrasing moments. The first was when my friend asked a blind man directions to a chip shop!! The second happened while I was at 'Moor and Coast' festival in the UK in a little town called Whitby. It happened on 1/5/99 so not very long ago!

I was playing my accordion around the sessions and a lot of people were complementing me on my playing but there was this one guy that just kept talking, talking,talking,talking,talking, talking,

talking, talking talking

talking talking

talking

and talking

He was sort of saying he was not worthy of being around someone who play so good, I took it as a big complement but by the 10th time in the same conversation you begin to think if he's just very good at being sarcastic.

So he decided to follow me around the festival as he wanted to hear as much of my playing as he possibly could, as he POSSIBLY playing. Personally by this time he was becoming a 'pain in the butt' but thats Ok cos I wasn't in a church. Its also important to note he thought he was the best singer on the planet, no universe, no even bigger then that and actually (to put it mildly) he wasn't, in fact he couldn't really sing very well at all.

So this whole story culminated on Sunday night in a pub. He wanted to sing to me so I could witness such a good singer in action (Not to bad so far) EXEPT he wanted to sing to me in the mens toilets. At this point my whole life flashed befor my eyes and I also had to slap myself areound the face to be sure I wan't having a MAD dream. I wasn't

Having spoken to me for what felt like 2 hour I knew that the only way I could get rid of him was to go into the mens toilets and listen to him.

I went!!, Why, Am I dreaming, can someong bring me back to reallity at this point!!!!!!!!!!!!

He sang (Or tried!) I told him he was exelent and I wish I could sing like that and he wondered in to the sing a round and I hjave never seen him since, Thank god

Is that story OK fot your embarasing situations then?

If you ask me its crazy, No that guys crazy

If you know what man I am talking about, or in fact you are that man reading this, I think you were drunk most of the times I saw you and you probably don't remember doing anyway.

Bye, Sam

When I was a teenager, I was at the local pool with a buddy. We were horsing around in the bath house as we changed our clothes. Eventually a "towel fight" ensued as we rolled up our towels and snapped them like whips at each other. When they connect it is quite painful.

I was getting the worst of it and kept backing up to avoid the snap of his towel. Finally I ran out of the bath house. I was about 20 feet outside of the doorway when I realized that I had no clothes on! Fortunately, I did have my towel in hand and quickly covered the vital spots. I sheepishly re-entered the bath house. My buddy was laughing too hard to continue the "towel fight."

For many years I dreaded the memory of this experience. It is only in eventually retelling it many times that it has lost its power to embarass me.

Back in school, a group of us were discussing some presentation or another- I honestly don't even remember what. I honestly meant to say I thought he was too CORNY but somehow I said- he was too HORNY! It got dead-silent and everyone looked at me, I guess wondering what I got out of the presentation that they didn't...

Bernard Melcher was a young man with a great future, living in the small town of Wellshire, Indiana. His parents were moderately well-to-do, decent folks. Early on, Bernard exhibited a bright mind and a knack with people. He rose rapidly in the little community, and at the age of 25 was nominated to the town council. A dinner was held in his honor, with everyone of note present. After a lasagna dinner catered by Puccini's, Bernard rose to thank the folks of Wellshire for their trust in him. He stood to thunderous applause, and as it ended, he was suddenly overcome by the aftermath of the lasagna dinner. He grimaced silently, trying to hold back a monstrous attack of flatulence. The crowd squirmed in their chairs as the silence grew unbearable. Suddenly, Bernard released a fart that had the impact of a mortar round hitting the hall. Attendees in the first row fell over chairs in their attempt to reach the exits, children screamed as their mothers searched for them, eyes streaming. Horrified, Bernard fled through an open window.

Ten years had passed, and Bernard was living in Indianapolis, where he had started life over again. After a series of menial jobs, ha had at last attained some measure of self respect again. But always his mind would drift back to Wellshire, a town that now seemed a wonderland of joy and promise. He decided that, after 10 years, he would return.

He parked his car at the end of a quiet, darkened street. He strolled down the lane, the smell of dogwood sweet on the evening breeze."Truly," he thought,"I was a fool to leave." He paused before an open window, smiling at the soft voices of a young mother and her daughter." Mommy," said the little girl, "when is my birthday?" Her mother laughed." Silly! You know it's August 14th, just 3 days before the Anniversary of Bernard Melcher's Fart."

Bernard drove away, never to return.

I was going to a Catholic High School in my home town of North Bay, in Canada. I had been in the habit of flashing people the two fingered "Peace" sign like a hippie-wannabe (that was how I tried to be "cool" back then. It was about 1975).

One day, a lot of people gave me a hard time, and instead of flashing the "Peace" sign to people, I gave a lot more of the middle-finger salute to my fellow school-mates than usual.

Walking home after school that day, I noticed my mother driving by me in her car. She honked and waved at me as she passed, and so I wanted to flash her the "Peace" sign. Unfortunately, I absent-mindedly gave her the middle-finger salute instead. I tried to correct myself but she had already gone by. My friend beside me laughed, but I expected to be killed on my return home.

Fortunately, my mom hadn't seen my response to her waving from the car, and my life was spared.

I have another embarrassing moment on the other thread but Campfire, you reminded me of a similar incident I had in high school. I was in 7th grade (13, I guess) and I was presenting to the class, a paper I had written on the subject of heroin. I was trying my best to be a forceful speaker, when I said that the government was trying to "stop the poppy crop." (If you only read this phrase, it's not half as funny as it is if you say it out loud...and I had never said it out loud until I got to class). Anyway, the kids roared with laughter!! They were nearly falling out of their desks onto the floor! I had to laugh, too, cuz it was SO ridiculous-sounding...but my face was on FIRE, it was so red! But it still makes me laugh...

Probably my worst: My parents had just sold their house in Kent and moved to N Wales. I was still living and working in Kent and I went to a party and got rather drunk. It was about a 4 mile walk back to where I was living and I passed my parents old house and decided that as it was empty, I would break in.

I did this, turned all the power and heating on and wrapped myself in a carpet. I woke up the following morning to some laughter from outside and went to answer to door and found myself face to face with the new owner who was showing a friend his new property.

Fortunately for me, he had a good sense of humur and nothing more was said about the incident.

On embarrising things, I will never forget the first time I went back to Jayne's house. The first thing I remember Pebbles, her daughter, saying was "mum do you remember the time when you were so drunk that you just sat on the floor and weed yourself"

My best friend Arnold was a fan of Celtic Music. We were in the Folklore Center, Issy Young's place on MacDougal Street, in the mid-60's. Arnold was deep into a roaring argument about how the Clancy Brothers were selling out. And Tommy McChem was doing nothing but harm to the group. The shortist red-faced man he was bellowing at (who had an Irish brougue...first clue) was bellowing back. Point v. point. Song reference v. song reference. (Second clue).

It went on for about twenty minutes...with about twenty people watching. All of them seemed to be standing in back of my friend to better watch the little Irash man (Third clue)

They were into such deep esoterica (fouth clue) that the crowd began to wane and my interest flagged as well. I wondered over to the record bins. To the Irish section.

The the Clancy Brothers subsetion. Specifically to some new album that had a jolly photo of the Brothers and Tommey McC. (Last clue).

I picked up the album, stood in back of himself and showed the cover to my friend. At first, he didn't know why I was distracting him.

I will carry the image of his blush to the next life. I wish I had pajamas that color. Tommy McC. was so exercised that he was not too amused and left. I had to be scrapped off the floor I was laughing so much. Arnold moved to California. I believe he is developed other interests.

One Sunday morning as my wife was pouring boiling water over a tea bag, my four year old daughter bumped against her and the water splattered on his arm. She was more scared than hurt but we applied some ointment and a band-aid more for the psychic healing than the physical. Later that morning as we were leaving church, my daughter and I made our way to the main entrance to where the priest typically greeted the congregation. My wife went out the rear entrance because she didn't feel like stopping to talk to this particular priest because he could be as long winded on the front steps as he could be from the pulpit. When we reached him, he asked my daughter if her Mommy was here this morning and she replied "Yes but she doesn't want to talk to you." He was obvioulsy taken aback by this. Noticing the band-aid on her arm he asked her if she was hurt. She replied: "Yes, my mommy poured hot water on me".

I've just read the one about the guy returning to his home town after an embarrassing fart.

My embarrasing moment came during a sound check for a festival performance here in UK about 2 years ago.

I bent down to open my instrument case and behind me was a low level drum mike that was turned on. The festival food and real ale had taken hold and I let one go,,,,right into the mike. It was heard at 1000's of decibels all over the festival site.

Marmot et al - there is recorded in court circulars of the time, a certain courtier who shall remain nameless (mainly cos I can't remember) who, upon bowing to her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the first, let go an enormous one. He was so embarrassed , he fled her company and returned not to court for several years.

When he did return, he bowed to her Majesty, and expressed his regret at not being there for some time. Elizabeth is reputed to have replied with something like 'we had forgiven the fart my lord'....

Thinking of accidents. I once walked into the room used by our fokclub carrying a full pint of Guiness and the person who was the organiser at the time spun round and knocked my pint and it ended up getting tipped over somebody's leather jacket. The trouble was this chap thought that I had done it deliberatelly and the organiser did not tell him what had happend and things got a bit nasty.

Fortuanately, I was due on next to sing and I announced over the microphone exactly what had happend at that it was in no way my fault.

I don't know, Jon, I'm beginning to wonder about you. *BG*

OK, today's attempt at achieving embarrassment:

There I am at McDonald's after the concert at our church, with my teen step-daughter, in the drive-through. A young lad in McD garb exits, making his way across our bow to his car. Daughterling doesn't see him, but he sees her choice young self... he's leering, so obvious. She looks over, he stops leering, he is way cool, she is looking at his shirt; asks me, "How come this place has maroon uniforms and my boyfirned's McDonald's (the next town over) has green?"

Neither of us has eaten all day, and we're pretty silly. Doing that girl thing! I'm looking at this boy and suddently he sees me looking and a huge grin breaks out. Dignified Miss Praise/Mrs. Hardiman lets out with, "Hey!! He was butt ugly till he smiled, then he broke my f**in heart!!!"

Of course we were parked AT the ordering microphone, which I realized as our laughter died down. "Oh shit, they couldn't hear THAT could they..." is next out of my neck. "No," comes the reply, "We didn't hear a thing!" There were smiles all around as we arrived at the pickup window. I'm sure the little heartbreaker will hear all about it. Oh, and I'm very well known in this town. It'll get around. Ah, another pedestal toppled, praise God!

What he was actually referring to was his hard drive...well, his computer's hard drive. And yes, the other Mudcatter was killing herself laughing.

If it weren't for life's little accidents, this world would be incredibly boring. Think art, think music, think invention, think typos...
