Writing_prompt_rainbow_penWriting Prompt: That Awkward Moment When

Did you ever experience an awkward moment like forget somebody's name when they totally remembered yours? Or fart in the dead silence of a movie theater? Or loudly scream "Mommy!" in the mall, forgetting you now call your parent 'Mom" or sometimes cleverly by their first name? These are the moments – those awkward moments – you will laugh about later but cringe at now!! Today's Writing Prompt asks you to finish the following phrase: 


Here’s one of mine to get you started.

    That kinda sorta awkward moment when one of your acquaintances knows you, but you don’t really know her and call her by the wrong name when she says hi to you. (Happened a couple weeks ago.) >.. At least we’re friends.

    The awkward moment when you are speechless because your crush asked a ? and you were not listening and he says “hello are you there it is so embarrassing


    Ok, so the other day, I was going to the classroom sink to fill up my water bottle. And we have a stool in my classroom, and I leaned up against it and it squeaked. It sorta sounded like a farting noise. Then I realized people were giving me funny looks. They thought I had passed gas right in front of class when I didn’t!

    The awkward moment when. . . I was in math, and there was a girl in a Beatles t-shirt. When I asked the girl what her favorite Beatles song was, she told me she was kind of indifferent about the Beatles, and she was just randomly wearing a Beatles shirt.

    That awkward moment when: I saw a guy that from the back looked like Harry Styles and I ran up and hugged him, thinking he was Harry, and he just gave me the weirdest look and said ” Ummmm do I know you?”. But he was cute and I got his number, so it wasn’t all bad:-)

    This happened to me yesterday. I was going to youth group, and unbeknownst to me, the guys and girls had split into two separate groups. (I am a girl.) So naturally, when I arrived, I ended up walking into the room where the guys were congregating. They were all looking at me and kind of chuckling, and at first I was thinking, “What’s going on?” and then I realized there were only guys in the room. So one of the leaders told me, “We split up into groups today,” and I said, “Oohh! That’s awkward,” and then one of the other leaders led me to the room where the girls were gathered. It was a very awkward moment!!
