Tela, one of Miss Unlimited’s Teen Columnists, is just a few weeks shy of graduation. She’s one of the very few who can say that they’ve made it through unscathed by a horribly embarrassing moment or two.
For most girls, however, it’s only matter of time before an unfortunate alignment of Bad Things comes along and results in us wishing that we could melt right through the floor.
During my senior year, I usually had lunch outside in “The Quad.” One day, a rogue attack bee (which I was sure was carrying a strain of Bubonic Killer Cooties) dive bombed my forehead. I panicked, flapped wildly at my face, back-pedalled, and then flipped backwards over my bookbag. After all the humiliation of a hundred students laughing at me, the son of a biscuit still manged to sting me. ON MY CHEEK. The horror.
I asked Aiming Low’s writers about their most embarrassing teenage moments. For your amusement (because moments like this are usually hilarious AFTER the fact), they’ve shared their dreadful tales with us:
Now that we’ve shared, we want to hear from you. What’s the most face-melting moment that you experienced in middle or high school?
And Tela, babe? There’s always college. *wink*
