Describe your most embarrassing moment.
The year was 1994. I was in the third grade and feeling so grown. There sitting across the room was a cute and quiet boy named Adam. I had a secret crush on him for years. I would draw hearts around his yearbook page.
One day during computer lab I was so elated to find out that the boy of my dreams was going to be my computer partner. I thought it was my big day. This would surely be the day that he would fall in love with me. We were sitting only inches from each other. I went to scratch my head and felt something in my hair. I pulled on it and suddenly heard a girlish squeal followed by a disgusted yell. It was a tick... I had thrown a tick onto my crush.
He went to tell the teacher who sent us to the nurses office. I felt like I was going to die. The nurse had to check both of us for ticks. For the next several years he would call me Tick Girl.
Sadly, Brad Paisley had not come out with his hit, "Ticks."
Well that was fun, reflecting back on the most embarrassing day of my life.... I lived through it.
