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 awkward moment when in seventh grade I was talking to my crush only to realize afterwards I had a large piece of, um, something (!) stuck under my nose.

    I typed the website address exactly as in my book, but it did not go to the scholastic website. I checked again and again, and found nothing wrong.
    Until my dad showed me “scr’ should be written as “src”.
    I was happy to see the scholastic website.

    That awkward moment when you laugh so hard at something nobody else thinks is funny. That happens a lot to me, but I have another one:
    That awkward moment when you were crying to yourself, and someone behind you heard all of it, even the words you muttered.

    That awkward moment in 3rd grade when I hurt myself in P.E. I was crying at first (it hurt!) but then I started laughing while I was crying. I “claughed” so much that the teacher actually had to ask me to leave the room. Worse yet, everyone who was there remembered it- even through 5th grade!
