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:

    That awkward moment when the teacher says “Okay, class! Put all books away!”, and you continue reading your Harry Potter book because your so obsessed with it you didn’t hear her. This happens to me all the time so now my teacher says ” Okay, class! Please put all books away including Harry Potter!”. It always works, though, because whenever I hear Harry Potter, I snap into focus:) It never fails to get my attention:)
