Day 27 | most embarrassing moment

Of which there are many...

Most of the more recent ones I have tried to erase! I'm more than a little gullible and stereotypically blonde so I tend to embarrass myself quite frequently. 

One memory sticks with me from my childhood though. Picture a busy department store a few days before Christmas, the hustle and bustle of the festive season. Picture me aged five or six curiously milling about while my mum dashed about picking up last minute gifts. So curious that I want to see exactly what is on that shelf just a few inches above my head. I can see the lovely, big Christmas tree standing on the middle of the shelf... but what is in those boxes underneath the tree? So, I step on the shelf below to raise myself up for a closer look. I grab onto the shelf above to steady myself and pull up a little higher. When the whole bloody thing tips towards me and the tree slides off the edge... on to my head. 

I can still see it sliding towards me now. And still remember the realisattion that this was going to end badly!

This was the first memory that came to mind when I sat down to write this post, but I'm sure there are many more, which are significantly more mortifying! Best forgotten probably :)
