We Call It The Train

May 10 - Most embarrassing moment(s)

I'm a lucky girl. I don't embarrass too easily and haven't had a lot of situations go horribly wrong.

There was this one time my freshman year of college. I was walking down a flight of stairs with some friends, got distracted and totally missed the last two steps. I twisted my ankle and fell to the ground. My friends made sure I was ok then started laughing at me. It's ok. I was laughing too. I looked around and didn't see anyone else. I thought I was safe until I heard a guy from the landing above yell, "DAAAAAMN!" So yeah, that was a little embarrassing.

Fun fact: I'm not a klutz, but I have sprained each of my ankles over ten times each. I blame cheerleading.

May 11 - Sell yourself in 10 words or less.

I live my life in rap lyrics and Friends quotes.

May 12 - What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life)

I won't lie. Sometimes, I miss my younger days.

You know, when my parents paid the bills and my biggest worry was what I was going to wear to da club.

Speaking of da club, this used to be my jam.

Way deep down south
Yo we play this game
It's them Quad City DJ's
And yo, we call it the train

Linking up with Jenni + Whitney

High school was the worst! I find the whole time of my life mortifying!

There is a friends quote for EVERYTHING!! Love it. And I too yearn for younger days - and by that I mean responsibility free days. Wouldn't it be nice to be 21 again but to know what we know now? L x

You know how I feel about Friends. It's one of the binding aspects of our friendship.

And this song? Made my day.

I loved that song.

That song makes me feel like I need to ride over to sonic, get a drink and spike it with some liquor! Ugh, I miss the club days too.

I miss my club days body as well! ;)

I sprained my ankle when I was young and I was FOREVER stepping wrong when dancing in dance squad, I feel your pain!

The fact that you quote rap lyrics #WIN!

I wouldn't go back to high school, but I miss the days when I was just starting college. I'd love to go back to those days.

There is NOTHING in life that can't be related to an episode of Friends.

I love your "ten words"!!!

And you've sprained your ankles 10 times, good grief...I'm not sure whether to be impressed or horrified!!

I think this is the one day of the challenge that I might miss out, I'm not yet ready to share any of my embarrassing stories!

I agree with your comment about "Gone Girl"...I really liked the middle of the book which I thought was the strongest part but I really hated the ending. I won't say more as I don't want to spoil it for anyone but I felt disappointed when I finished it.

Happy Week-end :)

I wish I was one of those people who wasn't easily embarrassed. After a lot of practice, I'm pretty good at at least acting like I'm not embarrassed, but when my MIL caught my then boyfriend and I doin' the dirty while standing up brushing our teeth in HER house, I seriously wanted to DIEEEEEEEEEEE. Still makes my chest tighten to think about it.

I love that we both live our life through Friends quotes. There's a Friends quote for just about every situation in life. :-)
You were such a cute cheerleader! Confession time-do you still have your uniform? I was only a cheerleader my freshman year, and I still have mine.

Meghan said...

Oh my gosh, heck YES to Quad City DJ's! :)

Unknown said...

I just heard this song on our local radio station yesterday! They have this awesome "90's at Noon" segment.

*sigh* Ahhh... oh the good ol' days.

Caitlin C. said...

LOVE that picture of you as a cheerleader! And I have definitely had something similar happen... I fell in front of a lot of people with a short skirt on, and had a guy yell "DAMN" haha!

Christina said...

I don't embarrass easily either. Even though I'm a huge klutz and make a fool out of myself daily. I can laugh it off. I embarrass others though! Haha! Your poor weak ankles! Have you sprained them much as an adult? I miss my younger days a lot. I'd much rather worry about a final or stupid boy than how I'm damaging my children day in and day out. Hahaha! Gotta love irrational fears and mommy guilt.

That picture is adorable!

Ha, I love how you described yourself. I live my life in "Friends" quotes too!
