Who Wants My Cacao?

by HEAB on January 4, 2011

Yesterday, the nut butter fairy left a package on my doorstep…


Thank you nut butter fairy!

Artisana is now making roasted almond butter which makes me so very happy as I have always been more of a roasted girl. I do enjoy raw nut butters, but there is something about roasted nuts. They just have so much more flavor in my opinion.

Immediately after opening my package of nut butter goodenss, I served myself up a big slice of pecan pie a la mode, HEAB style…


1 packet Artisana pecan butter topped with 1/2 cup cooked oat bran and vanilla coconut milk ice-cream.

Nut butter + oat bran + ice cream = total bliss, and speaking of bliss, who would like some?


As much as I β™₯ Cacao Bliss, I’m going to have to stick with my carob bliss for the time being, but I’d love share the Cacao love with one of you. Simply leave a comment below telling me about your most embarrassing moment ever, and I’ll send one random winner the packet pictured above. I’ll go first. I’ve had a lot of embarrassing moments in my life, but one that I’ll never forget happened when I was in 5th grade. We were doing gymnastics in PE class, and I went to do a somersault and farted in front of the whole class. I wanted to die.

Okay, I was in highschool at a steak-n-shake with my two best girlfriends and one of their brothers (who I may have thought was the tiniest bit cute). We were all being quite silly and adding the suffix “-ness” to everything. Like, “cool-ness,” and “stupid-ness,” and so on and so forth. As the cute older brother go up from the booth “to go pee,” I yelled at the top of my lungs, “Corey, have fun with your peing-ness!” And I had no idea what I had just said, until my girlfriends jaws dropped and I ran it over quickly in my head. I had just told a cute boy, in front of an entire Steak-n-Shake, to have fun with his penis!

Oh how I think that deserves some cacao bliss… πŸ˜‰


Lauren January 5, 2011 at 10:15 pm

Mmm Cacao Bliss. Just last week I was eating dinner in a restaurant where they tables were very close together. I may have commented on our dining neighbor’s conversation to my friend and that person heard me… woops!

Oh man… gotta be accidentally flashing the boy I had a crush on in 8th grade >.<
We were at the beach for a church trip and a big wave came and hit everyone… suddenly he looks at me and goes, "Um… your top…" It had totally just flopped up. A great way to solidify my pubescent anxiety hahaha!

maya January 5, 2011 at 9:57 pm

i wet my pants inside of a dressing room at target when i was 13. had no idea i needed to pee and then suddenly, i was gushing.
HUGE puddle on the carpeted dressing room floor! i was so ashamed having to tell the attendant what had happened, and she was not very nice about it. then i had to walk all the way through target and almost a mile back to my house with my baby blue overalls soaked in pee.
luckily it was just a strange bodily malfunction and the only time i have urinated without knowing i was until it was too late!

Nicole January 5, 2011 at 9:56 pm

I was in the 7th grade and got into my mom’s Nair. I didn’t know I had to rinse it off my legs after applying!!!! At school everybody was whispering about me at the lunch table and one kid announced that I smelled like pee, so naturally I must have peed my pants. I was horrified. I went home and my mom asked what the smell was!!!!! She about died laughing when I told her what I had done!

Brita January 5, 2011 at 9:45 pm

My most embarrassing moment was on a family vacation with my ex-boyfriend. We had been staying in a cabin with his parents, and there had been some awkwardness because we weren’t terribly close. The whole week was stressful, and on the last day I was just thrilled to get home. Before we left, I ran inside to use the bathroom one last time. I was sure everyone else was ready to go, so I just busted through the door.
Who was in there? The ex’s dad… and he was not standing up, if you know what I mean. Worst part? He told everyone how I had walked in on him, and how funny it was! Augh, I still cringe…

Also, sore arms today! This challenge is TOUGH! πŸ™‚

Kate January 5, 2011 at 8:38 pm

I love Artisana Bliss! It’s the best.

Onto another embarrassing story involving chocolate…an an undergrad I was an intern in The White House. Glamorous? Not so much…One afternoon I went over to The Mess in the West Wing to get frozen yogurt for myself, another intern, and our two supervisors. They put the four heaping yogurts into a cardboard container and I was balancing it as I approached a set of double glass doors (that led to a path back to the East Wing). My hands were full, so I used my foot to kick open one door. Well, it swung back and hit me hard, sending the 4 chocolate treats all over the glass and myself. A secret service agent came over and we started wiping it up when who should appear? The President and three aides. We opened the door for him, I turned bright red and mumbled an apology, and ever since I suspect I’ve been “that girl who spilled fro yo in front of the President”. So, so terrible but true.

Rachael January 5, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Gosh, where to start? My most embarrassing adult-era story takes place in a small garden in Brooklyn. I grew herbs…like basil, dill, cilantro and parsley. My neighbors, elderly and Russian (they made their own vodka from potatoes!) were convinced I was growing pot. They called the police, and summoned half the bloody neighborhood to our yard just as two cops arrived. After inviting the men to smoke my basil and see what happened, I was chastised for being sarcastic, and after they left, it was clear to all my neighbors that I was the reason the place was going to hell in a handbasket. Not the gangs, not the drive-bys, but me. And my basil.

I think my most embarrassing moment was when I was 15, and in the middle of winter I went to run on the treadmill. I had spilled red Gatorade and I went to get a cloth to clean it up. My sister (four at the time) saw the stain and freaked out, running out of the room (I had assumed she was going to look for my mom to “tell on me”, but they were out of town at the time). As I was running I heard loud knocks at the door, and there was a police car there (for the regional police, so much much smaller scale). I was wearing boxers and a sports bra, and was looking quite funny I expect. He said he received a muffled 911 phone call, and that no one would answer when he tried to call back, and then he asked me if there were any kids at home. I told him my sister was home, but there was no emergency, which was followed by a lecture on teaching children not to dial 911, and an additional stern warning about wearing proper clothing in the wintertime.

Annie January 5, 2011 at 6:38 pm

you asked for it… when i was in college my boyfriend and i went to the lake with two other couples… at one point he hoisted me over his shoulder to throw me in the lake.. I screamed and threw myself about (half heartedly) and he began to run.. as he did his shoulder hit in exactly the right (or wrong) spot and I farted… in his face.. he took two more steps… and with each step.. pbllllee.. pbleee… fart fart.. then he fell to the beach with me because he was laughing sooooo hard.. and lest you think they were quiet.. the other two couples 20 feet away heard too and everyone got a good laugh.. .HOW HUMILIATING! ROFL but funny as hell even today!

Emmy (Wine and Butter) January 5, 2011 at 5:53 pm

I havent commented in way too long – between starting my nutrition degree, finishing my job and getting married – ahhh!
I had to comment on this though (do we win if its most embarassing? Because seriously…)
Anyways, I am 10 years old and me and my BFF used to like this pair of twins. Being super cool we would actually camp out their house after school and spy on them through the window. One day thier Mom caught us and came outside. My BFF – and other friend who had joined us – played it cool like normal people – waved hi, said they were just on the way to the mall and thought they saw one of the guys who lived there. I, on the other hand, took off at top speed, squealing away, tripped, rolled down this hill their house was at the top of, got to the bottom, stood up and peed myself. OMG.
Perhaps the worst bit was the walk home with one friend shielding each side so that no one could see the big wet patch all oevr the front and back of my dress. Did I mention I was ten?
Do I win?
I miss corresponding with you and am so glad you know have the chance to the mommy you were clearly made to be! xoxo

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Good to hear from you and you are definitely in the running for the cacao bliss! πŸ˜‰
Congrats on all of your life changes. So exciting. πŸ™‚

Courtney January 5, 2011 at 5:51 pm

8th grade picnic. I grew up in Hawai’i so it was at a beach. I was so excited because my Mom let me get a 2 piece swimsuit, which was a no no as far as my Dad was concerned. Anyway, it was pink and white striped. I was sooooo excited. Got to the beach jumped in the water. Came out of the water and a few boys were staring. One pointed and whispered. The white part of my swimsuit was “see through”. I was so embarrassed when I finally (of course it took me a while to figure out what they were staring at so I walked around like that for a while) realized it and threw my clothes on and never went back in the water the rest of the day.

Lynn January 5, 2011 at 5:34 pm

Mine has to be when I was at my husband’s great grandmother’s 90th b-day party. His whole family was there and we hadn’t been married for very long, maybe a year. His aunt came in and we went to greet ger. I told her that it was so nice to meet her finally and she promptly reminded me that she was at my wedding….and gave us $50! Oh my lord….I just wanted to crawl under a table for the rest of the party. She was super awesome about it, though, she didn’t say anything about it ever again. I felt like a freaking dog.

Nessy January 5, 2011 at 5:24 pm

In 10th grade I brought a lunch to school containing salmon. Halfway through math class I noticed a fishy smell coming from my backpack and realized some liquid from the salmon had leaked. That day there had been a shark dissection in the biology class and so the rest of the day everyone complained about the fishy smell which they thought had traveled around the building from the dissection. Little did they know that the smell was actually coming from my backpack…

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Ha – you lucked out with that one! πŸ™‚

aubrey January 5, 2011 at 5:20 pm

I have a pretty terrible one. My mom used me as a guinea pig back in the day when spray tans just came out…..I WAS ORANGE.

I was 14…in the worst age of mean girls and attending middle school…
They all called me Oompa Lumpa. It didn’t come off for two weeks.

I was miserable. Haha, such a funny memory now that I look back on it.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:12 pm

I got a spray tan once and never again. I didn’t just looked orange, but dirty! The spray was way too dark and some part of my body turned darker than others. I looked ridiculous!

Heather January 5, 2011 at 4:53 pm

I have many embarrassing moments unfortunately. The one I will never forget involved my dear dear (outspoken) grandmother. I was a bit of a late bloomer in my adolescence. One summer, I just woke up and (finally) had breasts. That winter, in the middle of a holiday meal in which all the family was in attendance, my grandmother decided to point out this new attribute of mine so all could hear, “Well, my my looks like Heather FINALLY got some boobs!” I could have died!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:13 pm

Heather – hehe, I think I would have really enjoyed your grandmother. πŸ™‚

Megan (Braise The Roof) January 5, 2011 at 4:26 pm

I missed the post yesterday- happy belated birthday! I have so many embarrassing moments (thanks to the fact that I’m a HUGE clutz), but I think one of the most embarrassing was when I had started dating a guy that I really liked and he told me that he had told his family about me. I was really excited and went to text my friend about it, but accidentally sent it to him. Oops.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Thanks for the birthday wishes Megan!

Sara B January 5, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Yikes. One time in college I complained to this girl I had just met about a disagreement I had with a university staff person. Months later I found out that I was complaining to her daughter!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Sara B,
Oops! πŸ˜‰

Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse January 5, 2011 at 3:53 pm

I love your embarrassing moment!
(One of) mine was when I was, er, a bit drunk (and too young to be in that state!)
I was at a party, at a house which had French windows. Sitting next to the windows was a bloke I had my eye on in a big way so every time I went in or out, I tried my teenage best to smoulder at him.
Huge thanks to whoever SHUT the French windows so my attempted sexy swagger outside turned into a not-at-all-attractive head butt of the glass. I may have actually fallen at the hottie’s feet…
Mind you, maybe it was the right thing to do – I ended up being with him for nearly five years πŸ™‚

Beth January 5, 2011 at 3:51 pm

When I was in elementary school I had a short, pixie haircut. Being a kid and somewhat of tomboy, I was mistaken for a boy more than once by strangers (which was a big blow to my ego). On a field trip in fourth grade a girl I had never met from a different school said “excuse me, but are you a boy or a girl?”. I couldn’t respond, I just burst into tears in front of the class. The worst part was the boy in my class who I had a crush on answered her. I immediately decided to grow my hair out and have kept it long ever since.

Greta January 5, 2011 at 3:47 pm

My most embarrassing moment to date was at my old boyfriend’s house, as I was meeting his entire family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins) for the first time. The party was outside by the pool, and I had gone inside to get some beverages… little did I know that someone had closed the sliding glass door after I left. There I was, strolling along with my hands full, and SMACK! right into the glass. Not only did I spill the (red!) punch all over my new dress, but I hit it so hard that I passed out on the spot! Talk about your first impressions….

Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse January 5, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Ha ha, I’ve only just seen this! See mine below; remarkably similar…!
Great minds must fall over alike… or something πŸ™‚

mama January 5, 2011 at 3:37 pm

When i was in 6th grade a boy friend of mine told me i had some paper sticking out of my tank top and tried to grab it not knowing it was attatched to more and was actually filling out my bra, lol!! i died that day in math class!! Luckily he wasnt my crush at the current moment!!

Jaime January 5, 2011 at 3:04 pm

I have had SO many embarrassing moments (they just find me! haha)…but a recent one. This might be TMI, but oh well…I tend to just sleep in my underwear because I get really hot when I sleep, even though my house is always freezing. Anyway, I was home alone and the dog woke me up really early the morning after Christmas, so I went to take him out. I didn’t put any clothes on, since I was planning on hopping right back in bed. Well, I didn’t know it had snowed about 8 inches the night before and I opened the door to let him out and realized the snow was just piled up on our walkway. The dog didn’t know what to do and I just stood there, without clothes on, looking at the snow, trying to figure out where the dog could go to the bathroom. Anyway, it was early, I was tired, and not paying attention to the fact that behind the snow pile, the plow guy was plowing the driveway! UGH! He definitely saw a lot more that he bargained for that morning! I quickly shut the door and ran!

Sarah @ See Sarah Eat January 5, 2011 at 2:46 pm

This may not be the most embarrassing ever for me, but I remember when I was in 7th grade, I wrote a note to my friend about a guy in our class that I really liked and I dropped it in the hallway by accident. Later, in my science class, the teacher pulled it out and read it in front of everyone! I was mortified.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 8:17 pm

Really? That’s just cruel. πŸ™

Diana (Soap & Chocolate) January 5, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I don’t know if it’s my most embarrassing moment ever, but your story brings back a gym class memory of my own: we were practicing walking on the balance beam and I slipped and fell – HARD – full force of balance beam to the crotch. Probably the closest I’ve ever come to knowing what it feels like for a guy to get kicked in the balls. I waddled for the rest of the day.

Katherine: Unemployed January 5, 2011 at 1:41 pm

You cacao brings all the boys to the yard

Mel January 5, 2011 at 1:37 pm

I actually have a ton, lol!

I’ll go with the one that happened most recently.
Last Friday I wore a running skirt for my run. Afterwards I go to the gym to stretch and foam roll my legs. Well as I was rolling my legs, I didn’t notice that the skirt went under the roller. As I continued the motion, I rolled my skirt around the roller and it pull my skirt clear off my hips and I mooned the whole entire gym! Then I had to walk back to the locker room past all of the people who had just seen my blindingly white rear!

Syndie Yeoman January 5, 2011 at 1:31 pm

OMG Heather!!! That is embarrassing. My most embarrassing moment was on one of my first dates. I was a freshman in high school and 5 couples went bowling. I was so nervous that I threw the ball into the lane next to ours. I turned 5 shades of purple and have never gotten over it.

Lea @ Healthy Coconut January 5, 2011 at 1:26 pm

My local Costco started selling roasted almond butter this month, yippee! I like roasted nuts too.

My embarrassing moment was when I gave my leftover food to a man who I thought was homeless sitting on the curb right outside the grocery store. I said “Here you go, hope you like it”. And he said “What? I’m just waiting for my friend”.

Oh my gosh, I would have died! And that is so great your Costco is selling almond butter – that’s where we buy ours. Maranatha roasted. Love it!

Morgan January 5, 2011 at 1:18 pm

I was on the swim team at an all-girls high school and slated to swim the 200IM at one of the few competitions that had invited the swim team from our brother school. Somebody (um, probably me) false started, which I didn’t realize until not one, but TWO people jumped in the pool to stop me. Then I had to swim the race all over again and came in dead last.

jamie January 5, 2011 at 1:01 pm

thanks for turning your unfortunate chocolate situation into an awesome giveaway!!

my most embarrassing moment was at a party freshman year of college, when I asked a cute guy (a member of the baseball team) to dance and he LAUGHED in my face. it was the weirdest reaction ever. im not that physically unattractive, and i would get it if he got really awkward and walked away, but this guy was straight up hysterical laughing, leaning against the wall to support himself because he was laughing SO HARD. i started freaking out, since i had dated someone on the baseball team shortly before then, and was just so confused by the reaction. i ended up shrugging it off and me and my friends referred to the jerk as “the laugher” from then on.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:35 pm

You’re welcome, and “the laugher” sounds like a total A-hole!

AllieNic@ Frisky Lemon January 5, 2011 at 12:59 pm

When I was a freshman in high school I had a GIGANTIC crush on this junior boy on my XC ski team…one day while walking down the hall to practice he walked by and said hello to me. I was so excited/nervous/awkward that I gave a strange little wave and a grunt, and then abruptly walked into a giant, metal column at the locker room entrance. I walked into it was such force that it make a REALLY LOUD ringing noise…One of the older girls on the team saw it happen and pulled me aside to tell me her most embarrassing story…I was really embarrassed…um…yeah.

Gloria January 5, 2011 at 12:56 pm

A few years ago I was on a trip in Paris and was taking a nice romantic walk with a guy I was trying to impress. We stopped in front of the Eiffel tower and then the next thing I remember is being on my hands and knees in the grass throwing up. Apparently ordering fish for dinner was a horrible choice. I was mortified, but he was so sweet – carried me back to our hotel and brought me croissants in the morning πŸ™‚ I still feel like crawling under a rock everytime I think about it though.

Rach January 5, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Oh man, I really can’t even think of the MOST embarrassing moment. I’ve had lots and lots of them, haha! I’m particularly clumsy so I frequently run into things in public and the whole world gets to laugh. I’m also highly unobservant of my surroundings so multiply that by clumsiness and you have a mess.

I think one of the best examples of this would be when I had just returned to college after summer break away. Apparently they had expanded the little mini mart in our student center and used all glass walls. And I did not know this. So there I am, walking with a big group of friends, during the busiest time in the student center, walking along, thinking that it was still a clear path like it had always been when suddenly… SMACK! I walked right into the glass wall of the newly expanded mini mart. I fell on my tush in front of who knows how many people. It was lovely.

VEGirl January 5, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Oops, not sure why the above is campell. It was vegirl talking! Promise!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:31 pm

Got it. πŸ™‚

campbell January 5, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I have a few embarrassing moments, but one is when, a few years ago (may have been 11?) the family was camping with my grandma and grandpa. There was a pool we went to for a while, and I had to pee. When I found the bathroom (I thought there was only one), to my horror it was the mens! A guy came in to relieve himself too. ugghhh, I saw the woman’s bathroom (hiding, in my opinion) as I came out. There was a cute coy at the pool, too, and I was so scared he would find out. He ignored me the whole time, however πŸ™

Kari January 5, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I’m probably too late….but in 8th grade, between classes, I vomitted on the way to my last class and it splattered on a bunch of lockers and the floor. Literally 1/2 of my graduating class saw it because it was between classes. I STILL hear about it from old classmates and I’m 27 years old.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:29 pm

Nope, not too late. πŸ™‚

alyna January 5, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I had just started a new job and was still a tad nervous around folks there. One day when it was time to go home I grabbed my purse and this “bubba” cup that i drank water out of and headed down the hall. The owner/president saw me coming, so he held the elevator for me. Since I didn’t want him to have to wait long, I started to jog. He told me I didn’t have to run. When I tried to stop jogging I ended up getting my feet twisted up in each other and I belly-flopped onto the floor, my “bubba” cup sent flying. The worst part was he WOULD NOT laugh out loud at me! I could tell he was really trying to hold back and he just said that his wife is very clumsy too. Wow, what a great impression I made!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:29 pm

Hilarious – I’m not sure how he held it in. I would have been so embarrassed too!

Laura January 5, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I was in college and ran to use the bathroom in the student activity center. Well, I tucked my skirt into my undies and walked around for a good 5 minutes bare ass showing before meeting up with my friends for lunch. I wanted to die.

Andrea M January 5, 2011 at 12:18 pm

yum that looks great! and I’ve always wanted to try cacao!
I was talking to a friend at work who had a new picture on her desk. i said, “Awe! What a great picture. Is it your mother?”
“No. It is my husband.”


HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Oops – that is hilarious!

Lisa January 5, 2011 at 12:09 pm

When I was working at a cafe a couple years ago, and it was during rush hour when we were short of staff and I was both handling customers and taking orders. So this man calls in to order a party platter with coffee and I was really distracted and stressed so I took his order and asked him, “do you need a coffee urinal? – I MEAN COFFEE URN?!” we both laughed , but inside I wanted to hang out the phone and run away.

Jennifer N. January 5, 2011 at 11:50 am

Mmmm. I love me some cacao! Okay..let’s see, one of my most embarassing moments ever was a few yeas ago. I was standing in line chatting with this man at the hardware store. I was wearing some really stretchy wasted (a little too big) yoga style pants. My son was hanging on me, as toddlers will do, and next thing you know, there I was, with my pants around my ankles. The man just kept talking to me like nothing happened. I was mortified. =)

Melissa B. January 5, 2011 at 11:47 am

I had a very progressive 2nd grade teacher who devoted an hour each Thursday to teaching us yoga. We all thought it was great being able to roll around on the ground and have fun, and would always have a great time doing it. During one yoga session, we were learning how to transition from halasana (plough pose) to sarvangasana (shoulder stand), and I heard and felt the crotch/butt area of my righteous flourescent pink stirrup pants create a giant ripping sound. Of course, everyone in class immediately began laughing at me, and checking out my “My Little Pony” undies that were now showing. I was mortified! The worst part was, that this was in the morning, and I had to walk around all day like that, with a sweater wrapped around my waist!

sivan January 5, 2011 at 11:30 am

my most embarrassing moment was when i was talking to my friend in hebrew(im originally from israel:) about a man that stood near us that apparently forgot to close his zipper lol, he looks at us and say in hebrew “thnx for pointing that out”
we both became red:)

Melissa January 5, 2011 at 11:29 am

Hmmm- it was probably in 7th grade when I was freaking out on the inside but acting like I was too good for school on the outside. I went the the bathroom during class and was walking back to classroom when a nerdy boy started asking me about my tail. I ignored him and he kept saying “really, you should look, it looks like you have a tail. I am being serious.” I walked around in front of a class who were outside in the hallway and some girls snickered and then I decided to look and the toliet paper I had lined the seat with was tucked in the back of my skirt- but worse than that was that my skirt was tucked inside my tights. So it looked like I had a toliet paper tail and my butt was showing. How did i not feel the breeze!

From that day on, I learned, you should always trust the nerdy boys, they almost always have the best intentions. I tend to only date them now!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Yay for nerdy boys.CD is kind of nerdy, and I love him.

Sarah (Sarah Learns) January 5, 2011 at 11:28 am

i don’t think i can come up with a MOST embarrassing moment – i’ve had so many! but one that i can think of right away is from middle school. i was walking down the busiest hallway in our school with my friend during passing time. we were goofing around and she stuck her leg out sideways into my walking path. i took a HUGE spill all and dropped my books EVERYWHERE in front of so many people. it was awful!

Jennifer January 5, 2011 at 11:17 am

My first day of work as a PA I was rounding at the hospital and went into a patient room to talk with her and sat down next to her bed on what I thought was a chair…after seeing the look on her face I realized it was her camode!!! Oh and don’t worry when I tried to get up my white coat got stuck to the handle of the toilet and the Attending Physician tried to help me and was there to witness it all : )

marie January 5, 2011 at 11:03 am

When I was about 8 I went for a bike ride, and my mom came along for a walk. I took a spill and landed in dog, um, droppings! To make matters worse, she reminded me to clean up as soon as we walked in the house, so the rest of the family asked why I needed to wash!!!

Caree @ Fit-Mama January 5, 2011 at 10:50 am

One night in college we had a huge party at my house. After the party we decided to head out to the bars which were in walking distance. A guy told me to jump on his back and he would give me a piggy back ride. I went to jump on his back but totally missed and landed on my face on rocks! I didn’t feel much because I was pretty drunk and was still ready to head to the bars. Everyone looked so concerned and said I should stay home and clean up my face. I went into the bathroom and as soon as I saw my face I wanted to cry! my whole left side of my face was bleeding and scratched up!

My most embarrassing memory to date happened to me in the 2nd grade…when we went to recess after lunch, we all threw our lunchboxes up against the wall of the school, which happened to be right next to the “grassy area” where the older kids got to go during recess. I thought I saw someone kick my lunchbox from across the playground, but I wasn’t sure. Sure enough, when the bell rang, I discovered AFTER picking it up that my Lisa Frank lunchbox had been essentially rolled in a pile of dog crap! I went back to my classroom and tried to wipe my hands off on some looseleaf, but the stink remained–one kid even said, what’s that smell? Needless to say, I quickly escaped to the bathroom to wash my hands!

Abi January 5, 2011 at 10:37 am

Walmart trip, skirt, large underwear. I kept walking, oblivious.

Kelly January 5, 2011 at 10:35 am

What a great idea….you have to be laughing so hard right now reading everyone’s stories. Mine was in high school. You know when your social status means everything? ha! It was at a basketball game in my home gym and let’s be real in high school you went to sporting events only to be seen and to see other people (namely boys). So I was walking on the sidelines tryint o strut and act cool and I tripped over the scoreboard chord. Not only did I fall flat on my back but it caused the scoreboard to become unplugged! The gae stopped as everyone looked down at me….thought I would die. Never did I live that on down.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:11 pm

I am – been cracking up for over an hour. These comments are hilarious – yours included although I know it wasn’t at the time.

WendyF January 5, 2011 at 10:27 am

Shortly after returning to the office after taking more than a year off for maternity leave, I got into the elevator with a coworker of mine. With us in the elevator was another guy, someone that obviously worked in the building but I did not recognize him. My coworker started asking about how I felt about returning to the office after having my daughter, etc. and all of a sudden, the third wheel elevator guy blurts out, Ooooh, you were pregnant – I thought you were just getting FAT ! Akward silence followed………

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Really? What an a**hole!

Gill (snaxandthecity) January 5, 2011 at 10:21 am

I was once at netball trials for a regional team, and was the ONLY person not picked for the squad. It was done movie-style, so all the other girls were over one side and I was on the other at the end of the trials. I had to walk over to my parents, balling my eyes out, and go home by myself while they all stayed and got their uniforms etc! Mortifying.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Gill, you poor thing. Your story made me sad. πŸ™

Corey @ the runners cookie January 5, 2011 at 10:04 am

I have a lot of awkward/embarrassing moments it feels like! For example the other day I slipped on ice and fell pretty hard, not realizing I peed my pants until I got home.

Jessica (Dalyauthenticity) January 5, 2011 at 9:50 am

Mine definitely happened in the 3rd grade when I was in gym class. My teacher always told us to use the bathroom BEFORE class. Well this one particular day, I forgot to go before class, and as we were playing marbles on the gym floor, I started to feel a trickle down my leg. Yes, I peed my pants. I was so humiliated. There was no hiding the fact that I had peed myself. My mom had to bring me a new change of clothes.

Marilyn January 5, 2011 at 9:44 am

I was in a church play when I was younger and the box that I was supposed to stand on collapsed while I was on it…in front of hundreds of people. Very embarrassing!

Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 5, 2011 at 9:43 am

I know there are health benefits to eating raw, but I agree that roasted nuts taste SO much better.

Embarrassing story: my boob fell out of my swimsuit during a swim meet in high school. True story.

Kristin (Salty Tooth January 5, 2011 at 9:36 am

My middle name should be embarrassing…how to pick just one story?

When I was in 6th grade I was at the state Forensic meet. After winning my category I went to use the restroom before heading into the cool after party/dance area. As I was dancing it up, thinking I was the sh*t, a random girl from another school came over to tell me that the back of my dress was tucked into tights. Something that my friends neglected to tell me when i was leaving the restroom. It was mortifying,

lgw January 5, 2011 at 9:35 am

looks like farting is embarassing for anyone and indeed, my most embarassing moment includes one. i was training in CPR and when i went to blow into the dummy, out popped a fart. i leaned back up, was tapped on the shoulder by the firefighter, and heard “You don’t have to blow so hard!” everybody just rolled on the floor. i was red-faced!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:08 pm

OK, that was just cruel of him to say that, but I have to admit, it made me laugh out loud. πŸ˜‰

Sami January 5, 2011 at 9:25 am

how generous of you to share your cocao bliss with us!
it is one of my favorites πŸ™‚

one of my most embarassing moments, was in the 3rd grade. my gym teacher wouldn’t allow me to go to the bathroom and i peed my pants in class. it was horrifying!

Allison W. January 5, 2011 at 9:22 am

I used to think it was fun to show off my back bend ability at bars in college. One night my sophomore year (after a lot of beers) I started to do a back bend in front of a crowd and then fell… hard. I hit my head but it was even worse that my hair and clothes had touched the nasty bar floor!

Veronica January 5, 2011 at 8:42 am

Ok, here’s my story….

A bunch of us kids were sledding down a hill near our house. It was a blast! We even made a small snow ramp to launch us into the air and then we’d crash and laugh so hard.
Well, it was so much fun that I did not want to have to leave to go inside and use the bathroom so I held it.
Finally between holding it too long and a laughing too hard at the latest crash, I started peeing my pants right there in front of EVERYBODY.
Mortifying at the time.
Now I laugh about it.

Meagan January 5, 2011 at 8:32 am

I’ve definitely done the farting thing too… except mine echoed throughout the whole gym. The class loved it though and we died laughing. My most embarrasing has to be falling down the bleachers, skinning my knee, and ripping my tights. Either that or almost falling off the treadmill, which happens quite regularly. haha

Lindsey @ Enjoying Healthy Foods January 5, 2011 at 8:28 am

I too have a lot of embarrassing moments. I think one of my most embarrassing moments was when I was around 7. I was shopping with my step mom and step sister. My sister and I thought it would be a good idea to hide in the clothing racks and scare our mom. When we went to jump up and scare her, I hit my head on the clothing rack. Staying strong I tried it again, only to hit my head again. WE were laughing so hard that I peed my pants. I had to walk through the WHOLE MALL to get to where our car was parked with PEED PANTS! πŸ™‚

Melanie January 5, 2011 at 7:49 am

Hey:). I’ve been reading faithfully although not commenting…it’s been a rough few weeks. However, I have a good one for this contest, and couldn’t resist….

I got my period when I was 12. It happened in the morning and I went to a friend’s house to spend the afternoon. When I got home, there was a POSTER ON THE FRONT DOOR where my mom had scrawled “YOU ARE WOMAN!!!!” in pink and red lettering with red balloons attached all over it. Try coming up with a cover story for *that* one for a group of pre-pubescent boys in the neighborhood…

I was totally mortified. At least she didn’t make me a vagina cake, though.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:06 pm

Oh my gosh – no she did not! I would have died, and I promise never to make a Period Poster for Summer. πŸ˜‰

So sorry to hear you’re having a rough time. You should read through the comments on this post if you get a chance. I’ve been cracking up for over an hour. πŸ™‚

esther January 5, 2011 at 7:45 am

while I was in college, I was working this crazy early morning shift at a company down the street…I was super tired, I went to the ladies room and walked out with toilet paper hanging out of my pants..sooo embarrasing!

Marina January 5, 2011 at 7:24 am

I adore roasted almonds πŸ™‚
My most embarrassing moment happened during my cousins wedding. I was going around the guests, giving them those little flowers to put on their clothes, and my dress somehow was tucked into my panties. I was going around with my butt exposed to all of them πŸ˜€ Awful

Becca January 5, 2011 at 7:05 am

let’s just say don’t try an ab roller in a skirt…no matter how slick you think you are, you will show your rear to everyone. fact. how embarrassing!?

JenniferLeah January 5, 2011 at 6:32 am

Hmmmm….love these little packages! I have never see this brand around here (Maine) but will def check it out online. The CocoaBLiss sounds devine!
Back in the 90’s I worked in fashion, I was living in Boston but spent 1-2 weeks per month in NYC for work. I was quite active with the night life in both cities and loved to get all dressed & go out. I was at someblacktie fundraiser, thinking I was SO cute in a new outfit… but did not realize I had tucked the back of my already short skirt into the back of my pantyhose~so I was walking around with my backside exposed to EVERYONE (sans panties). Yeah…I looked REAL cute.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Oh my gosh, I would die…DIE!

Amanda January 5, 2011 at 5:34 am

I was in 7th grade when I backed into a sharp projector cart in homeroom. Long story short, I had a big cut on my butt and blood soaked through my pants! Everyone was laughing at me and they thought I got my period. I was so embarrassed, I couldn’t even go to the nurse! I quickly wrapped a sweatshirt around my waist to cover the blood. I grabbed my gym clothes, my best friend, and a band aid, and ran to the bathroom. My friend was nice enough to go into a stall and place a band aid on my butt. I still have a large scar from that embarrassing day and a best friend. Now, we can laugh about it, but it was definitely not funny that day!

Michelle January 5, 2011 at 5:32 am

I was wearing a new pair of heels to school and feeling great…until I fell flat on my face in front of one of my students.

Talia January 5, 2011 at 5:09 am

Oh gosh…too many to count. In 9th grade I was on the Pom/Dance team at my highschool. We were performing a half-time dance during basketball season when we were playing out huge rival school (the rivalry between my highschool at this other highschool ranked 3 in the nation for biggest highschool rivalries a few years ago…so this was big stuff). We were doing this dance and we had dance pants under a pair of snap up basketball warm-ups. At some point we were supposed to grab the warmups and snap/rip them off and continue dancing. Well it didnt go exactly as planned…during a kick my pants fell prematurely off and I fell. The rivalry school caught it all on tape, and I was replayed at the beginning of the high school news segment every week. Talk about embarrassing!

Natalie January 5, 2011 at 5:03 am

hahaa!!! mine was when I was around 11 and got my period at a swim meet on deck. Running down my leg and they thought I had a cut somewhere. Had to call my mom to come and get me.

carlee January 5, 2011 at 2:40 am

HAHAHAHAHA! I freaking love you! Thats super funny!
I’d have to say one of my most embarasssing ( I’v ehad manyyyyy more) is when I was in 1rst grade my family and church friends all decided to go out to Godfathers for pizza ( WAHHOO!). Anyhow back then when I was a little girl I had this cute little jean dress in which I would wear white panty hose under. Anyhow I had to go to the bathroom so I went. When I came out the whole “Kids table” ( Some were older than me then like my sister and her friends as well as mine) they were all staring at me. Speciafically my best friend joni..like jaw dropped staring and pointing. Not even saying anything. Like mute. So I stood there all happy and giggly oblivious and was like “cmon guys!” “whats so funny?”. They pointed down so i looked to see that my jean dress was tucked more than halfway into my hose and you could see my underwear! LOL

Eimear January 5, 2011 at 2:40 am

I read in a macrobiotic book/website that roasted nuts and seeds are actually better for you because the minerals are more bioavailable, the heat breaks down the phytates somewhat. Also most nuts are basically dried variants of themselves when they get to us, so they should probably always be soaked and heated to make them more digestible, somewhat like beans (basically a type of seed) which most people would dream of eating raw without at least a good soaking.
Can’t think of an embarrassing story right now but if I do later on I’ll post (although I live too far away to enter). Have you ever read the BFG by Roald Dahl? The giant characters think farting is excusable but burping is deeply embarrassing!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:02 pm

Interesting about the nuts – thanks for sharing, and, no, I have not read BFG. I’ve let a few rather embarrassing burps myself. πŸ˜‰

Lexi January 5, 2011 at 2:36 am

I ran into a glass door. Twice.

Yes, it was the same one.



Kaysie January 5, 2011 at 2:08 am

I was taking a woman’s study class in college and we all know that mostly women take that class. But there were about 6-7 guys and maybe 35 females. Our teacher let us take a bathroom break in the middle of class as usual. I guess I wasn’t paying attention to which bathroom I walked in because once I oppened the door EVERY single guy in my class was at a urinal! I stood there for a second in shock and then walked out probably red face. The worst part is that they all saw me and knew I was the girl who walked in on them peeing in the bathroom for the rest of the semester!

carlee January 5, 2011 at 2:41 am


Amanda January 5, 2011 at 2:02 am

Aren’t fart stories the worst?! πŸ˜‰

I was 12 years old and at my first boyfriends house for
a birthday party and ate wayyyy too many
chips with bean dip and ended ripping the
longest fart in the entire world! I was mortified
and asked my friend who was sitting next to
Me to take the blam but she didn’t. Still to
this day my husband (aka my first real boyfriend)
teases me about it!

carlee January 5, 2011 at 2:42 am

That is so cute you are still together after so many years! That is adorable!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 7:00 pm

I love that he stuck around despite the world’s longest fart. πŸ˜‰

Shelley January 5, 2011 at 1:47 am

I was new to my cross country team and we were playing 2 truths and a lie. I’m really shy and my truths were that I used to take singing lessons and that I auditioned for oscar meyer weiner. My coach then made me sing the oscar meyer song in front of everyone… and i forgot the words…

michelle January 5, 2011 at 1:40 am

This whole post made me laugh out loud. I was at a small town fair with a few friends and there were no bathrooms only 7 or 8 outhouses lined up outside. Each house had a line up in front of it. When it was finally my turn, I went in and sat down……all of a sudden some man opened the door because I had forgotten to lock it. Everyone in the lineup could see me. I was so embarrassed and convinced that everyone knew who I was for the rest of the night.

bianka January 5, 2011 at 1:08 am

pretty sure mine was 5th grade too and it was spanish class. I bent over in my chair to pick something off the ground and farted then tried to cough to cover it up…. didn’t work. The teacher stopped the class and asked me if I needed to go to the bathroom. humiliating.

Lauren January 5, 2011 at 12:57 am

I was a junior in high school and my physics teacher asked me to stand up and help demonstrate waves with him using this long, heavy slinky-like spring. We stretch out the slinky and do the demonstration and then he tells me to bring it back in and as I’m walking back down the aisle toward him, I trip up on a backpack, let go of the slinky and it flies across the room and hits him squarely in the crotch. He’s doubled over for a long time and the class is roaring. Sadly, it was probably one of his most embarrassing moments as well…

Mandiee January 5, 2011 at 12:47 am

I’m excited that Artisana is getting into roasted nut butters, but honestly, raw is my favorite (raw almond or coconut to be exact). However, I don’t have a vitamix (I wish!) so I usually end up making roasted if I need a quick fix. My most embarrassing moment was when I had a reunion with my international friends and one of them tried to kiss me right in front of the others. I actually really liked one of my best guy friends (non-international) who was there also. I’m still mortified just thinking of it!

Have a lovely day & thanks for the great giveaway! You deserve lots of lots of chocolate once you can eat it again :).


HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:58 pm

You’re welcome. Hope you had a lovely day as well. πŸ™‚

Laura January 5, 2011 at 12:37 am

When I was in 4th grade, we were reviewing for a science test and I had to stand and answer the question and I said “sperm” instead of “spore”. Everyone was laughing hysterically so I knew I made a mistake but honestly, I had no idea what sperm even meant, which made me feel even more stupid. Cue humiliation!

elaine January 5, 2011 at 12:09 am

i have to admit i was having a really horrible day, but reading everyone’s funny stories has really put a smile on my face. i love that we can laugh about our embarrassing moments now! Mine happened when I fell asleep in bio class during the 8th grade and farted in my sleep. It was so loud it woke me up! It was like a bad dream that kept going even after you woke up!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:56 pm

That is so funny – you must have wanted to die. Glad everyone’s stories cheered you up – I’ve enjoyed reading them as well. I’m just sitting here cracking up.

Coco January 5, 2011 at 12:02 am

Most embarrassing moment…
1st grade…I was wearing my new favorite pink corduroy pants with my purple d-ring belt. I always tried to avoid going to the bathroom at school because I thought the bathrooms were gross and smelly. Well, one day I apparently had more than usual to drink at lunch, because I went back to class and literally thought I was going to burst. So I decided to suck it up and make my way down to the bathroom…when I got there, I quickly tried to undo my belt only to find that it was stuck. I COULD not get it undone for the life of me. Eventually it was just to the point where I could not hold it anymore…and plopped myself down on the toilet and peed with my pants on. I quickly booked it down to the nurse after that and went home for the day…so mortifying. I will never make my children wear belts after that experience!

Lisa January 5, 2011 at 12:01 am

We had tons of birds at my high school that liked to hang around during lunch and swoop down and get food. Needless to say, one day I had to leave early to go wash my hair and change my shirt. And I still don’t like birds.

caronae January 4, 2011 at 11:49 pm

I was a gymnast from when I was 4-14 In seventh grade, I started my period in the middle of a gymnastics meet. It was all over my flimsy leotard. I was mortified. To make matters worse, I had come to the meet with my dad. No adolescent girl wants to talk about her period with her dad. Ugh.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:54 pm

If it makes you feel any better, I got my first period when my mom was out of town and had to ask my brother to drive me to the store to get supplies. So embarrassing!

Aylin January 4, 2011 at 11:38 pm

My most embarrassing moment ever is actually a bit disgusting. I was in the 1st grade and went to the bathroom. I was wearing overalls, and after I dropped them down to go the bathroom, I didn’t realize that I actually was standing on a wet floor (which can only be explained by other 1st grade girls’ bad squat-ability). I pulled up my overalls after peeing only to realize my entire bottom was completely drenched in liquid (ewwww!) I was so petrified–I ended up tying my sweater around my waste hoping people wouldn’t notice. But I remember smelling a bit funny all day and being wet and sticky. My face was beet-red the rest of the day. When I got home I jumped into the shower and scrubbed my body thoroughly πŸ™‚ still embarrassed about this one!

Fallon January 4, 2011 at 11:32 pm

I must say when I was in elementary school I had a hard time using public bathrooms and would usually hold it till I got home. Definitely not a good thing but I use to have some VERY bad accidents peeing in my pants because I would laugh too hard at jokes the kids would tell me. πŸ™

courtney January 4, 2011 at 11:29 pm

I think I have blocked most of my embarrassing moments… but the most recent one happened last week when I wore a black bra under a light pink t-shirt all day at work. I didn’t even notice until I got home and looked in the mirror and wanted to die! I work mainly with men, and I am sure they all noticed but couldn’t figure out a nice way to tell me… gah, I need to stop getting dressed in the dark!!!

Rachelle January 4, 2011 at 11:19 pm

I was 16 and driving and I was still learning how to drive a stick. My brother and I had a car to share and it was, of course, a stick. I was driving home from school and I stopped at a red light just up the street from school. When the light turned green I coudn’t get the car to move..smoothly. It jerked and jerked and jerked for what felt like ever. Someone even got out of their car to come help me move. I was mortified! I was sure that some one from school saw me and sure enough the next day the popular girl told me she saw me and laughed and laughed. It was so embaressing, even still, years later.

Lindsay January 4, 2011 at 11:13 pm

My worst memory was when I was in High School, a Freshman, I was running varsity in Cross Country. I was so nervous and I wanted to do well and I wanted to make my coach proud. In conjunction with this it was the day of homecoming, so I was even more nervous! So, I ran that race and I did well. I completed the race and then passed out in my coaches arms. When I came to, I started throwing up all over him and it was so embarassing!! πŸ™

S @ extremebalance.net/blog January 4, 2011 at 10:59 pm

Did you even have to ask? OF COURSE we want! πŸ˜‰

I have a low tolerance for embarrassment… I can’t even stand to watch someone be embarrassed on TV or in movies! I guess a benign embarrassment story would be when I was in university, and working as an aide for my quadriplegic friend. I took her to the bathroom, and afterwards, she went to find a table in the caf and *I* used the bathroom. Now, this was a disabled room with key access only, so people with keys always knew to knock first: it was *always* locked, after all! Well, as I was using the toilet, someone knocked, I called out “occupied!” Regardless, in barreled this man who was as embarrassed as I was… maybe!

It gets WORSE!

The next week I had an interview in the International Studies office about doing a year abroad… and wouldn’t you know it, but the guy I had my meeting with was THAT SAME GUY!!! He clearly felt bad about the bathroom incident *and* still recognised me, so right at the beginning of the meeting he said “oh, you’ll have to excuse me. I’m a bit hard of hearing and nearly deaf in my left ear.” He looked about 40, so it was totally unexpected, and it was nice of him to try to explain the gaffe… but I NEVER scheduled my follow up meeting, and therefore NEVER went on my year abroad because I was too embarrassed to look this guy in the face again. πŸ˜›

Anne January 4, 2011 at 10:54 pm

hahah your embarrassing moment cracked me up. i would have to say..when I crapped my pants in the 3rd grade..someone took WAY too long in the one person restroom..blehh πŸ™

Jen January 4, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Well, I was in 8th grade Science class, when I got up to throw something in the garbage at the front of the room. As I was returning to my chair, I noticed a hot boy in class looking at me like he was really worried and/or disgusted. Went to the bathroom later and noticed that I got my first period. Nice.

Katie January 4, 2011 at 10:53 pm

I have been dying to try coconut butter…not sure why I haven’t bought it yet. So many embarrassing moments but one happened just last weekend. I was with my bf at a New Years Eve party and I went to go show off my new boots and totally fell in front of everyone!! It happened so fast that I had no time to catch myself. It was horrible. It made a huge thud so everyone at the party turned to see what had happened. Oops:)

Gina January 4, 2011 at 10:48 pm

When I was in elementary school, we were playing a game in class where we lined in two groups in vertical lines. Then the two people who were next up would stand up if they knew the question to the trivia first. I stood up a bit too soon and the girl behind me tugged on my skirt and down went my skirt and my underwear too! I was buck naked in class and hugely embarrassed!

Avery January 4, 2011 at 10:47 pm

Haha, oh I have so many! Ok, so I’m a college student and a few years ago I was playing Apples to Apples with my roommates and friends, including my friend/neighbor Tyler (who I had JUST met at the time). We were having a great time and were all bent over with laughter. At one point while everyone was cracking up, I accidentally let a little fart out. It wasn’t THAT loud so I conveniently tried to play it off and pretend no one had heard it. I totally would have gotten away with it, but my friend Tyler stopped laughing and looked me straight in the eye and said, “Did you just FART?!” — Ugh! Busted. I thought I could still play it cool, so I said, “…what? No!”. Haha.. but he was NOT giving up! He fought back, “Yes you did!” — CRAP! What was I supposed to say? So I surrendered.. “Ok FINE, I did”. At this point we all had another hysterical laugh. Even though I still can’t believe he did that, we get a good kick out of it every now and then, and (somehow) Tyler actually became one of my best friends. Go figure!

Sarah January 5, 2011 at 3:51 am

omg, I’m in hysterics reading this…

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Hilarious! I totally would have tried to play it off as well.

nicole January 4, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Heather!! My moment was SO SIMILAR. I was in 5th grade English and we were working in a small group. I had my knees to my chest in my chair, and the CUTEST boy in my class (I still think hes a hottie now … in a platonic way of course) was in front of me, facing me. Someone said something funny, I DIED laughing, and let one rip at the same time. Because he was in front of me, it wafted at him. OMG Heather, the look on his face. I was mortified.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:48 pm

Oh gosh, that is awful, but I’m cracking up.

Gina January 4, 2011 at 10:37 pm

When I was a sophomore in high school I had a major crush on this junior boy named Paul. He looked like Tony Danza in Taxi, but even cuter. Anyway, one day I’m in the lunch line and I hear all my friends screaming my name from the lunch table. I turn around super-quick to see what’s up and accidentally punch the guy standing behind me straight in the crotch – and of course, it was Paul. My friends were screaming my name so I’d notice he was behind me. I was mortified, managed to sputter out “Sorry!” and ran for the bathroom.

Heather January 4, 2011 at 10:33 pm

One of my most embarrassing moments happened this morning actually. I fainted while sipping my coffee on my friend’s deck. A mutual guy friend found me collapsed – pajamas pants and bed hair and spilled coffee and gashed bleeding head and all.

Not the way I’d prefer the guy to remember me. πŸ˜›

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Oh gosh, hope you’re okay!

JW January 4, 2011 at 10:25 pm

When cheering at a basketball game in high school, we got up to stand down on the court to do a cheer. I totally busted it coming down off the bleachers in front of everyone!

Sue H. January 4, 2011 at 10:24 pm

In 8th grade my math teacher leaned over my desk to help me and her nose ran and dripped on to my paper. I was soooo embarassed for her!

Jen January 4, 2011 at 10:15 pm

Pooping in my pants while running. That was the worst by far. There were no bathrooms anywhere and there were no trees to go in. I didn’t have many options so I figured this way at least I had a chance of maintaining some pride. Ugh, it didn’t go as planned.

Mary @ Bites and Bliss January 4, 2011 at 10:14 pm

hahaha, how fun!!

Most embarassing moment…hmmm..well, when I was about 8 or so, I walked outside right after taking a bath, saw my friend riding her bike with her older brother and mom, took off running towards her and was so excited that I flung my arms in the air, dropping my towel and leaving it in the dust. Granted..her mom wasn’t too happy that I just flashed her kids..

Katy January 4, 2011 at 10:13 pm

My embarrassing moment is surprisingly similar to yours actually… I was at the gym working out with a friend. She had offered to take me through her “boot camp” circuit which was a bad idea in the first place. I was doing sit ups on the inclined board with a ball weight, trying hard not to make ugly grimacing faces because there was this really cute guy next to us lifting weights. On the way up on one rep I let out a really loud fart. The guy started laughing and said, “It happens to the best of us”. I wanted to die.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:45 pm

I can’t believe he commented. Too funny, but yes, I would have wanted to die as well.

Sarah R January 4, 2011 at 10:12 pm

When I was in eigth grade, I played on the basketball team. Our home jerseys were white and it wasn’t until late in the day that I realized I was wearing bright blue underwear that would totally show through the shorts. I had to call my dad (why oh why couldn’t my mom have been home?!) and have him bring me some white underwear. I was a little embarrassed.

Catherine January 4, 2011 at 10:10 pm

After months of rehearsal, I went to sing the first line of one of the songs in my high school’s spring musical, and my voice totally broke and I ended up making some strange hissing sound instead. This was opening night, and the only night that was video taped.

Melissa January 4, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Oh my gosh Heather!!! That sounds so embarrassing!! I haven’t embarrassed myself too many times in my life, but I did try public speaking once and it was a total disaster. All my friends were doing it and they were so good, I thought it would be easy! But when it was my turn I was stuttering and my voice was shaking and then I made a joke, and I remember pausing to wait for the laughter, and looked around with that expectant smile on my face to see who was laughing… but nobody was laughing. I lost my place in the speech and it became painfully obvious that they knew that I was waiting for them to laugh. I ended the speech without even addressing the topic that I was supposed to talk about! I was mortified and to this day I hate it when it’s my turn to speak, even in meetings with only 3 people present!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:42 pm

That sounds painful. So sorry. πŸ™

Rachel January 4, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Or some Cacao Bliss, whichever πŸ™‚

Brandi January 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm

I know this was already mentioned but the absolutely horrendous farts that come during yoga was enough to make me quit! Im glad I’m not the only one but it is like the end of the world when you are the only one it happens to during class

Rachel January 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm

I would love to try some Carob bliss!!
Once I had a bit too much to drink at a party at a good friend’s house, and asked everyone if they wanted to go in the hot tub. In my head, they all said yes, so I stripped off my clothes and waited for everyone to get in the tub with me. Well, I will forever be known as “that naked chick who got in the hot tub by herself at that party.” Good times!

Ashley January 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm

LOL about farting…luckily no one saw mine, but it was still quite embarrassing…in college I pee’d down my leg, which soaked through my jeans…and I wasn’t drunk!! I hate sitting on toilets, and this time, my aim was awful! I haven’t had anything artisana in so long…mmmmmmmmm

samantha January 4, 2011 at 10:02 pm

so, when i was younger, my brother and sister both excelled at sports. i was the bookworm in the family. i was proud of my intellect, but jealous of the praise they both got, and the family times gathered cheering them on at games. so, in the 4th grade, i joined my school’s softball and basketball teams. long stor(ies) short, here’s how THAT ended up…

softball: my very first (and probably last) base hit at a game, they took me out at first and put in a faster girl to run the rest of the bases for me. not humiliating for a chubby little nerd AT ALL.

the one and only basket i made… was for the wrong team. of course this was a home game, in front of all my family and friends.

i went back to the books shortly thereafter.

Kristen D January 4, 2011 at 9:59 pm

Well, i was a sophomore in college and was dancing at the bar and quickly ran to the ladies room to pee (broke the seal too early in the night!) and walked out apparently with a trail of toilet paper attached out of my pants !
LOSER!! haha

Erin January 4, 2011 at 9:55 pm

My most embarrassing moment was when I went to the Dr.’s office with my mom and little baby brother. He was constipated so they had to give him a little help (if you get my drift). Somehow the combination of the smell, and the Dr’s office combined caused me to faint while waiting for my mom to pay.
I was sitting down when I blacked out, so I didn’t get hurt, but to add to the embarrassment, I apparently peed my pants when I fainted. My mom made me wait to see the Dr. to make sure I was okay. I was ten years old and mortified.

Wendy Elliot January 4, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Yummy, thanks for the chance to win!
Embarrassingly, I flew from Vegas to Florida to teach a class. Rented a car, and drove 2 hours to the incorrect store. I had to call the correct store and tell them I put the wrong address into my GPS and I would be late. It was awful!

Sarah January 4, 2011 at 9:54 pm

{{For women’s eyes ONLY}}…

When i was in high school, I started my period for the first time during Honors English class. It was so unexpected and quite heavy. I KNEW it had gone through my pants and couldn’t decide whether to get up and risk the whole class seeing…or to wait it out until the end of class and then try to “clean up”. I ended up choosing the latter. Unfortunately, another MALE student decided to choose this day to stay after and ask the teacher about extra credit. So…I managed to sit there, rummage through my things, and fake stall until he left (a good 5 minutes later! ) I feel so bad for my younger, terribly immature self!

Heather January 4, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Before my husband and I started dating, we went over to one of our friends apartments to play cards. We all rode together and had to walk down a steep hill to get to their door. It had been raining earlier, the ground was slick, and I was in flip flops- bad combination. No sooner did my future husband tell me to be careful, but I fell down the hill, on my butt, getting wet and dirty- mostly hurting my pride.

Ana January 4, 2011 at 9:49 pm

Oh my, I am also totally clumsy and have embarassed myself quite a few times. One I never forget was when I was around 12 and was spending summer with my cousin at my aunt and uncle’s house. My cousin was going to do a summer drama class and I decided to go along. Let’s just say I am not a performer, but it was fun to meet a bunch of new people. We were going to present a play at the end of the course. We rehearsed during the whole month and all went well. However, on the day of the play when I was up on stage I forgot my lines… completely blanked out. There were my parents, some aunts and uncles in the audience and I was so nervous, I could not stop shaking and I just stood there, paralyzed until someone whispered to me the words I needed to say. It was so embarrassing, I vowed I would never set foot on a stage ever again.
I am funny but I am also shy, and that was one of the worse moments for me. To this date I hate speaking in front of too many people.

kyla January 4, 2011 at 9:47 pm

One time in 3rd grade during our spanish lesson, I asked to be excused to go to the bathroom because a) I had to pee and b) I hated spanish. So I’m taking my time walking down the hallway and dillydallying. I finally get to the bathroom when this girl from my class walks and asks me if I’m done. I was and she just said that our teacher wanted to check on me. This girl tells me that apparently “I just like to spend a long time in the bathroom”. I walk in to my class embarrassed and everyone is still laughing about it. Oh boy, did I just love elementary school.

Jill January 4, 2011 at 9:47 pm

Your MEM had me laughing sooo hard. The third-grade boy in me still loves any embarrassing/funny farting stories-prob b/c I was forbidden to say the word “fart” when I was little. LOL!

I think the *worst* happened when I was 9 and at a week-long summer camp. I’d been feeling nauseous before breakfast, but still went to the dining hall with my counselor and the other 9 or 10 girls in my cabin. Well, a few Frosted Flakes into the meal, I tossed my cookies right at the table…during the few moments of silence after the day’s announcements. Of course all of my cabin mates were shrieking “ewwww” by this point as well as any kids at nearby tables who could see what had happened. I was promptly taken to the nurse’s office by the counselor, who looked pretty grossed out herself. And what did I do once I got to the nurse’s office? Sit down in one of the chairs in her tiny makeshift waiting room beside some poor unsuspecting boy and throw up AGAIN-only missing his arm by a few inches.

Hannah January 4, 2011 at 9:45 pm

Oh, how I long for this Cacao Bliss, as I can’t get it where I am!

My embarrassing moment? Getting stuck up a tree as a kid, and my brother making me laugh so hard I peed my pants…

I can’t believe I just told that story…

Lindsey January 4, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Most embarrassing moment was when my friend tried to set me up with a guy when I was a freshman in high school. She introduced us and I was so nervous and shy that I ran away!! Literally – without saying a word. Such a dork!!

Alyson January 4, 2011 at 9:38 pm

I have a strange ability to delete embarrassing and/or traumatizing experiences from my memory but one thing I’ve retained is this: I had a favorite pair of denim cutoffs, perfectly worn in. One night, after many errands and hanging out with a large group, I discovered a rip all down the backside revealing my entire right cheek! Yes, I was wearing a thong. TMI!

Rachel (tea and chocolate) January 4, 2011 at 9:31 pm

A couple of years ago, I went to the C-store in my dorm wearing a shirt with a really wide neck. Normally it fits just fine, but apparently that time it was pulled down a little to far in front and was showing about half of my bra. There was guy (another student) working the cash register, and he kept giving me strange looks and seemed kind of embarrassed. I didn’t notice my shirt until I had left the store and was walking back to my room.

ann January 4, 2011 at 9:30 pm

When I was pregnant, I went to a formal affair with my husband. I had pinned my skirt closed and when I took my coat off, my skirt fell down.



Tara January 4, 2011 at 9:24 pm

I’ve wanted to try cacao bliss for so long! One of my most embarassing moments was in 8th grade science class. I was always really sensitive about the longer than average, dark hair on my arms. The kid next to me whispered to the boy on the other side of him, “Dude, look at her arms! Her hair is longer than mine!” I proceeded to yell obscene words at him. I started waxing them after that.

chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 4, 2011 at 9:22 pm

When i was a junior in high school, I was walking up the stairs by myself to class and fell UP the stairs. My books flew everywhere, and the water bottle i was carrying fell down the stairs. I pretended to be walking with the girl next to me and laughed like I was laughing with her….

Chelsea January 4, 2011 at 9:19 pm

In second grade we were having reading groups, and just as my teacher called on me to read, i farted super loudly. i was so embarresed and pretended that it wasn’t me =[

Disturbed January 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm

I would say my most embarrassing moment was when I was in 5th grade. It was mid way through the year-I know this because our seating arrangement was changed-and my new seat was beside my crush. Coincidentally, mother nature visited me for the first time that day-while wearing white shorts-and this crush of mine randomly in the middle of class jumped from his seat, pointed at me, and yelled “you are bleeding.” I was so embarrassed.

Kayla @ Let's Live Wholesome January 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm

A few years ago I worked for the Gap.

This woman came in looking for jeans, and I had been helping her find the right fit and size all morning. She came to the register and asked for me to special order a different size for her. Not realizing the size she had tried on was significantly too small, I announced, “You do realize these are 2 sizes bigger than the ones you tried on, right?”. She responded with, “Wow, thanks for announcing that to everyone!”.

I felt terrible, and was just trying to make sure she was getting the right size! I felt like a complete idiot, and blushed until I was red as a tomato. Lesson learned πŸ™‚

Sarah January 4, 2011 at 9:07 pm

Dressing up as a bear and dancing to the cha cha slide at kids parties when I worked at a children’s play area.
I hope I win!

Eleanor January 4, 2011 at 9:06 pm

The most humiliating moment in my life was when I was in grade 2. You know how in elementary (primary school, in Australia!) school you used to walk in two lines, with a partner? Well, we were walking somewhere in the school and I had turned around to talk to someone and I wasn’t looking where I was going. The second I turned around, I walked smack bang into the flag pole. Unfortunately for me, I also managed to hit my eye on a pointy bit of protruding metal – my eye started bleeding profusely and it swelled and blacked up like a balloon.

I laugh now, but I laugh in complete embarrassment!

Kristen January 4, 2011 at 9:05 pm

My moment was when trying to look cool and walk with shoulders back and a swagger through a downtown high rise when a very kind lady stopped me and said my dress was tucked in the back completely into my tights. Real cool!

Meg January 4, 2011 at 8:58 pm

my most embarrassing moment was when I was out running, and I spotted a group of runners coming in my direction. Wanting to look cool and all, I picked up my pace and started strutting my stuff. To bad I didn’t see the patch of black ice in front of me. Yup. You know what happened next.

Katie January 4, 2011 at 8:45 pm

My most embarrassing moment happened when I was in kindergarten on the monkey bars at recess. I had to go to the bathroom really bad but wanted to show off by doing one last “cherry bomb” in front of all my friends before the bell rang. By the time I had flipped over the bar and completed the trick, I noticed that I had peed my pants! Unfortunately, the light purple stirrup leggings I was wearing that day became noticeably darker by the time I got into class. The worst part was that when people asked me if I peed my pants, the only excuse I could come up with was that they were two-toned leggings that were supposed to look like this! What can I say? I was only five at the time! I’m sure everyone knew, but they were all kind enough to laugh behind my back instead of to my face!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:32 pm

That’s pretty clever thinking for a 5 year old. πŸ™‚

Sarah January 4, 2011 at 8:41 pm

When I was in about fifth grade, my mother’s friend took myself and my siblings to the movies and she let us choose whatever candy we wanted. I chose Milk Duds, and right at the beginning of the movie I spilled almost the entire box all over myself. I lifted up my butt and was sure I picked up all that were on the seat… but apparently not. After the movie finished and we got up to leave we discovered that I had missed quite a few Milk Duds on the seat and the warmth of my butt had melted them onto my jean shorts, making it looked like I taken a big crap in my overalls. It was impossible to get off and, being in the middle of summer, there were no available sweaters to tie around and cover it. I had to walk out of the crowded movie theater with Milk Dud poop all over myself.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:29 pm

Hehe. That is hilarious. CD once had something similar happen to him. Some dark chocolate melted on the seat of his car. I think it was during his lunch break, and he went back to work with chocolate “poop” on the seat of his very light colored khaki pants,

Stacy January 4, 2011 at 8:38 pm

That looks delicious and the cocao bliss sounds fantastic!

Most embarassing moment: At hockey camp when I was 13 or so, I slept walked and got locked out of my room – we were staying in college dorms. My roomates would not wake when I pounded on the door. I had to get the counselor up b/c she had the adjoining room to ours. She was in there with her boyfriend and I was in a night shirt! Eeek.

Luyi January 4, 2011 at 8:31 pm

This summer was my first year teaching at an academic enrichment program. Dress code is very strict, no sleeveless shirts, no open-toed shoes, etc. One day, in the middle of my class, I realized that in my hurried frenzy to school in the morning, I had put on my button-down shirt inside out.

s January 4, 2011 at 8:31 pm

haha, i think i have put a lot of embarrassing moments out of my memory. so i’ll share a generic one .. in 6th grade i was teased for having hairy legs (wasn’t allowed to shave). that was pretty embarrassing at the time, but i think it’s funny now.

Angela January 4, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I have had plenty of embarassing moments, but the most recent one I can think of, and it is not that awful. Lucky for me, I have a very hard time getting embarassed! I was studying for HOURS with a study group and went to the bathroom and had pen all over my face. I mean a big, long, black line across my cheek. God only knows how long that was there!!!!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:26 pm

I would have told you you had ink on your face. πŸ™‚

Amy B @ Second City Randomness January 4, 2011 at 8:24 pm

After a night of bars, my roommate and I decided to order pizza. When the doorbell rang, I tore down the stairs with money in hand. I slipped halfway down, hit my tailbone on the end of the stair, and hit every stair on the way down.

The pizza guy was smirking when I answered the door. But I tipped him well anyways because he didn’t completely burst out laughing – like my roommate.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:25 pm

Amy B,
Ouch! I think he should have given you the pizza for free. πŸ˜‰

rebecca lustig January 4, 2011 at 8:23 pm

i broke my foot. doing the walk of shame.

it was snowy, icy, there were steps and high heels. need i say more? haha i was limping and crying the whole way back to my apartment hahah

Ashlei January 4, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Lol your embarrassing moment sounds a bit like mine. When I was in high school at a pep rally we had to do the wheelbarrow across the gym floor and my partner pulled my pants part of the way down in front of the whole school AND it was caught on video. Oh, that was horrible!

Annie January 4, 2011 at 8:21 pm

I accidentally pulled the fire alarm while the rest of the church was taking communion. The entire church had to evacuate and the fire trucks came. I got to say in front of everyone that it was my fault.

Annie January 4, 2011 at 8:20 pm

When I was about 15, I was using my Uncle’s computer and clicked a link that turned out to be porn. It instantly downloaded a ton of stuff to his desktop, and he had to call my cousin to remove it! I almost died.

Sarah January 4, 2011 at 8:20 pm

Ive always wanted to try this product!

Most embarrassing moment has to be falling down a flight of stairs in high school after an assembly. I was a cheerleader and flashed everyone on the staircase and then had to hobble my way to the locker room! Not only was my ego bruised, i also tore ligaments in my ankle from the fall.

Jess M January 4, 2011 at 8:16 pm

I was 16 at a Christian camp for a week. I decided to try out a zip line for the first time in my life. The start was at the top of a steep cliff, and ended in a lake. I was wearing a two piece swimsuit. Had a blast until I stood up to get out- my top had come down a bit on one side flashing my boob to the whole line of guys that was waiting for their turn to go up. Later that day I overheard a guy say “Isn’t she the girl from the zipline?” Totally embarrassing!

Diana @ VEGeneration January 4, 2011 at 8:15 pm

I was listening to Enrique Iglesias on my computer with my headphones on while in the quiet study area in our university library. When I got up to move my things, I closed my laptop screen (didn’t turn it off) and without thinking, pulled my headphones out. Problem is, I never paused my iTunes. Everyone in that area heard the orgasmic beauty that is Enrique’s voice… not in a good way though. I had to log back in to my account to stop the music, which took me a good minute or so. So embarrassing!

Monica T. January 4, 2011 at 8:15 pm

I was late getting to the bus and was running out of school after “knotting” my wrap skirt. Half way down the line of buses I felt a draft. I looked down and my skirt was around my ankles. Not one of my best moments! I quickly jerked it up and stumbled to my bus. As I waited outside the bus door trying to retie the skirt, the bus driver said quietly, “I don’t think any one noticed.” Thankfully no one ever mentioned it…so I think he was right!

Jennifer in Newfoundland January 4, 2011 at 8:14 pm

When my husband and I were in England on our honeymoon we did lots of hiking. One day before setting out I decided to dart into a department store to buy some track pants as all I had were shorts and it was a cool wet day. Upon buying them, I realized I had to change before hitting the trails. So I went into a restaurant – it was 50s style diner and the music was blaring. So I leaned over the counter to ask the waitress if I could use their bathroom to change. I was practially yelling due to the music, and just as it stopped I was saying “because I need to change my pants”…into a room full of people…and in England, pants are underwear.

Thankfully, the music started up again, covering up the waitress’ laughter, and people got back to their meals (not before I saw a room full of people looking at me having essentially said I needed to change my underwear!). She waved me on to go ahead (I was holding up a bag with track pants in them, so she knew what I meant)…I’m hoping they heard the Canadian accent and realized I wasn’t actually referring to my undies πŸ™‚

Heather -who happens to like AB, as well :) January 4, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Belated Happy Birthday and congratulations, HEAB! I’ve been reading your blog for a while but have never commented. You are an inspiration!

As for my most embarassing moment:
My sophomore year in college I went to my boyfriend’s house for a visit. There had been construction going on and I needed to pee. The bathroom had Jack-and-Jill style doors (one opened in to the hall, the other into his parent’s bedroom). I kept trying to close the hall door, but I guess it wouldn’t close completely due to the construction. So I left it as closed as possible figuring no one would walk in, they’d hear me. As I am peeing, the OTHER DOOR OPENS! I guess from all the air movement I created by repeatedly trying to close the hall door. Best part? The parent’s bedroom door is directly in front of the toilet? Even better part? The parents bed FACES the bathroom door! Unimaginably embarrassing part? Boyfriend’s father is sitting up in the bed watching TV-and me PEE! I can’t get up because he’ll see WAY more of me than I would EVER want. He doesn’t get up, I’m guessing because he has no clothes on (he was shirtless and covered by blanket, TG). Father calls for mother repeatedly so she can close the door.
So both his parents got to see me sitting on the toilet. I was mortified. He told me they all had a good laugh over it. So embarassing!!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Oh my gosh, I would have died, but I have to say I got a good laugh over it as well. Thanks for reading and for the birthday wishes.
In almond butter love,
Heather πŸ™‚

Heather M January 4, 2011 at 8:02 pm

Well..this is embarassing!! But mine would have to be last month I went in to work and saw a woman I hadn’t seen in a while. When I walked in she poked my stomach and said “oh what’s this?” like she thought I was pregnant. I kind of played it off like it didn’t bother me but it was awful!!! But that’s why my new year’s resolution is to get healthy!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Heather M,
Oh gosh, I’m so sorry. I bet the woman was much more embarrassed than you, and I bet she learned never to do that again!

Katie January 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm

I’ve had plenty of embarrassing moments…but not one that REALLY sticks out to me. However, one that I remember happened last year when I was interning for a 1st grade class. The internship dress code was casual, so I just wore whatever I wore to school that day that I had the internship. Anyway, one day I wore a pair of my jeans that have a few holes in them and some fake paint splattering. It wasn’t too noticeable…but, you know kids. They notice EVERYTHING and they like to comment on everything. A little boy in the class came up to me after looking at my pants for a while and asked me, “Why do you have paint on your pants?” At this moment I was getting slightly embarrassed. The little boy said it pretty loud and some of the other kids were getting interested. I could tell they wanted to join the conversation. The last thing I wanted was for the teacher to hear. So, I quickly replied, “They were like that when I bought them.” To that, the little boy asked, “but why?” Oh no. Of course, little kids and their “why” questions. I just told him because they were made that way and scurried off to another kid in need. Haha. I felt bad, but I knew that if I kept on talking to the kid about my pants, the teacher would soon get involved. Let’s just say that I didn’t wear those pants to class ever again. =P

Cynthia (It All Changes) January 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm

We were going to see a play in 8th grade at Christmas and I had crutches. My friend told me not to fall right before we got off the bus…then I promptly fell. I had to ride with the security guard up up to his office and take a report. I missed half the show and my friend couldn’t stop laughing.

Julia January 4, 2011 at 7:58 pm

In 7th grade I spilled the tank of sea monkeys we were growing in science class all over myself in the middle of class. I had to wear my gym clothes, which consisted of a pair of shorts that said “Panama City Beach” on the butt and an old white t-shirt for the rest of the day.

Eliza January 4, 2011 at 7:55 pm

My most embarrassing moment would be my wedding.

I moved from Australia to the US to marry someone I met online. I was 18, we’d known each other for 25 days and swore we were in love.

The wedding was in his (our) apartment with crepe paper decorations. I wore jeans and a flannel shirt.

No, surprisingly, that isn’t the most embarrassing thing.

The most embarrassing thing was that my ‘wedding’ was shown on national Australian television.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Wow – 25 days? What a leap of faith…and I guess Australian national television thought so too. πŸ˜‰

Lindsay January 4, 2011 at 7:52 pm

Hi πŸ™‚ My most embarassing experience was scoring on the wrong net in a floor hockey tourny in junior high, I’m 30 and my friends still bug me about it!

Lindsay McAlester January 4, 2011 at 7:51 pm

Most embarrassing…might possibly be when I went to a dance club with some friends to have a FUN night. Mind you I was 18 or 19 and feeling too hot to trot! I wore these ever so cool shiny, tight stripper-ish pants with a top that was no larger than….well a square of fabric. (Turning red as I type.) I was shakin’ it and feeling seksi! Then, I felt a breeze!!! I had ripped my ever so cheap pants out on the dance floor. I had to leave with my hands covering my bum. Showed more of my booty than I planned on that night!

Laura I. January 4, 2011 at 7:49 pm

MEM: I was about 13, at a family cookout for my Dad’s fire department at his Chief’s house. Note: I was PAINFULLY shy and quiet, anyway. The chief’s wife had done a really good job cleaning the sliding glass doors, and when I was going back in the house, I ran smack into the glass, nose first. Hurt like hell, and I still remember people laughing:-(

Lora January 4, 2011 at 7:49 pm

I dont want to admit this but I have slept walked (almost naked) It was embarrassing to put it lightly. I got locked out and had to go to my doorman and ask for a spare key and cover up to my “night gown” lol. oh well it makes for a good laugh i guess πŸ™‚


Sally January 4, 2011 at 7:45 pm

One time I was standing the checkout line at Target and some teenage girl started to wave at me. I had no idea who she was, but to be polite I waved back. Turns out she was waving at someone behind me. She gave me a strange look and I was very embarrassed. The worst part was that I had to stay in line, so I couldn’t walk away quickly.

Amber from Berlinswhimsy January 4, 2011 at 7:42 pm

My story is the story of learning NOT to say something about someone else unless you want them to hear you (ie. don’t talk behind other people’s back). My cheeks still burn when I think of it…

In our early teens, my BFF and I were working at a fitness club’s day-care center providing care for tots and sometimes our mutual friend worked there, as well. Well, one day we were complaining about her and we thought she wasn’t working that day and right in the midst of it, she walked in and told us she had heard *everything.* Embarrassing and definitely a learning moment!!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:15 pm

I’ve so been there. Lesson learned!

Clare @ Fitting It All In January 4, 2011 at 7:39 pm

Oooh I farted while sitting in a big circle at dance class when I was little. That sucked…

Marie January 4, 2011 at 7:37 pm

When I was in 8th grade, my orchestra was playing at the state fair. I was sitting 1st chair cello, and my chair broke during our performance! It was awesome.

About 6 months ago, I bought my first *gasp* Abba CD. One afternoon, the hubby left and I was home alone. I pulled down the shades, blasted that sucker, and went to the pantry to grab some cans of beans (I had no hand weights). I danced around the room singing at the top of my lungs, doing the craziest, squirmiest, most embarrassing but fun moves I could think of (all in the name of fitness, of course). I glanced at the front door and there was a woman peering through a crack in the shade awkwardly. I put the cans down, gathered my pride, and answered the door. She said “I’m sorry, I’ve been knocking for several minutes. I’m with the U.S. Census Bureau. Are you busy?” I was SOO embarrassed, but I managed to go with it. I looked her in the eyes and said “Actually, I was in the middle of something…”

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:13 pm

Amy Jo,
β€œActually, I was in the middle of something…” That is great! πŸ™‚

Susan January 4, 2011 at 7:37 pm

I’ve had many, but one of my worst was at the mall two years ago. I walked out of a store with a sweater in my hand! I had picked it up to show my friend and forgot I was still holding it when I left the store. Sirens went off and everyone looked at me like I was the worst shoplifter ever!

Sarah Jayne January 4, 2011 at 7:37 pm

Awww Heab you’re so generous!!!! Can’t find that good stuff up here in the boonies πŸ˜‰

Hmmm most embarrassing moment….Isn’t a family friendly story !! But a close second place was in fifth grade when I first started my period. I’ll never forget it. I was wearing jean short overalls and a turqiose crop top shirt from Rave. I locked myself in the bathroom for an hour until my mom got there and made her make sure no one was in the hallway as I sprinted out to the car. Horrid!

Kristina January 4, 2011 at 7:36 pm

My most embarrassing moment happend at camp, when I had been walking around for a couple hours with my zipper down. I’ll never forget it. 6th graders can be so cruel!

Nancy January 4, 2011 at 7:31 pm

I remember sitting in the car on the way to school one morning (probably in 1st grade or so) and having to ask my mom to turn around…I had forgotten to put on underwear! While I was mortified at the time, I suppose I should have been thankful to be with my mom rather than on the school bus. That would have been horrible!!

Lisa @ Thrive Style January 4, 2011 at 7:31 pm

For a few years, my sister and I went overboard tie-dying everything we could get our hands on whenever my mom would let us…so shirts, shorts, pj’s, socks, keds, underwear…
By 7th grade I was over it, but in a moment of dirty laundry desperation, I wore tie-dyed undies to school one day.
After school I had a volleyball game, and the crowd was filled with parents, teachers, and tons of other kids who were just hanging around after school. My friend thought it was funny to pants me (!?) in front of everyone, and I stood there in the middle of the gym with my shorts around my ankles and purple, pink, yellow, & green faded tie-dyed undies.
Now…it’s funny. Then…I wanted to die!

Erin January 4, 2011 at 7:24 pm

When I was in 3rd grade at a school wide assembly, I threw up infront of the entire school into another girl’s hair and all over my clothes, in the small gym. It was disgusting and mortifying :(. I had gone to the nurse that day sick and she told me to stick it out… from then on whenever I went to the nurse, I went home!

Kay January 4, 2011 at 7:22 pm

Once, at the height of awkwardness (AKA Sophomore year in HS), I transferred high schools. During my first lunch hour of my first day, I was swaggering in my heels (who wears those to HS?!) and I slipped on a french fry… which led me to slip across the caf and into a professor who I came to find out was very stoic and stern, after having him for two courses.

First impressions are everything! πŸ™ hahahaha

kristi (sweet cheeks) January 4, 2011 at 7:22 pm

my most embarrassing moment was in sixth grade when I forgot my line in the school play. Total blank stare and everything.

Amy January 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm

I was in 6th grade…Went to put my coat on and as I put it on a pair of my sisters DIRTY underwear came out of the arm!! Everyone laughed it was horrible!!! I guess my coat was on the floor by the dirty laundry…ewwwww so gross!

Robyn jones Clark January 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm

Well I might as well share this on the Internet. It’s funny now but it was so embarrassing then. I went to the gynocologist for a test or check up I can’t remember now. But I had to pee in the cup like you always do when you go. But my gyno had moved into a brand new building. The place had just been built and the paint was fresh on the wall! I went to put my cup in the window. At the old place the doors were heavy, well not so much at the new place. My pee went all over me and the brand new walls and the floor. They didn’t even know where the janitors closet was so I was trying to clean up pee with papertowels. I am crying and covered in pee. I had to even wear scrub pants home. She said I could keep them, ahh the memories when i wear them now! Ha ha! I was so embarrassed. My husband was out in the waiting room when I came out you should have seen the look on his face. Ha ha. Anyways, hope this gave everyone a good laugh. I can laugh a lot now but it was pretty humiliating then!

Melissa January 4, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Oh no!!! That’s hilarious!!!

Elizabeth@The Sweet Life January 4, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Oh wow–you’re going to make us work for the bliss, aren’t you? When I’d just started working in finance, on a huge trading floor full of men, I took a call for one of my colleagues. I shouted to him across the floor–think football field–“Igor, someone’s on the phone for you. She says it’s your mom but it sounds like a man.” Sure enough–it was his mom. Why would I even have felt the need to add the editorial commentary???

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:31 pm

The name Igor is bad enough…

Jennifer@ knackfornutrition January 4, 2011 at 7:11 pm

One time (ahem I was 18) I was in Disney World coming off of a ride. I apparently got a little to excited about how much fun it was because I missed a step down and completely ate it in front of a large crowd of people. That is bad enough on its own, but I busted both of my knees so I was in severe pain. Nothing like looking like a dumba$$ in a children’s amusement park as an adult.

Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) January 4, 2011 at 7:07 pm

this is not the most embarrassing moment, but i just posted pics of me in the hair salon w/ foils in my hair. looking oh so sek-si. NOT πŸ™‚

Katy (The Singing Runner) January 4, 2011 at 7:07 pm

One time I was running on the treadmill at the gym and I was holding my iPod in my left hand like I always do. I went to push the incline up and my headphones got caught on the rail. Somehow I went flying back and fell of the treadmill… of course in front of a pretty good looking guy. :/

Julz January 4, 2011 at 7:06 pm

My MEM has to be when I got on the ski lift with the wrong people! Talk about an awkwardly long ride up the slope!

kristin January 4, 2011 at 7:05 pm

One of my many embarrassing moments happened when my finance and I first started dating. I was driving over to his house when I had to pee really bad! I thought I could make it, but ended up peeing my pants right in my car. Luckily it has just rained so when I got to his house I stomped in a puddle and convinced him I needed to wash my pants because they were wet from the rain! Haha!

Melissa January 4, 2011 at 10:42 pm

Finance? Heehee! Hilarious story- very creative hahaha!!

J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) January 4, 2011 at 7:04 pm

I have a bunch of those Artisana packets that I haven’t tried yet, they look sooo good!

Just ONE embarrassing moment? haha Ok, following your gym class horror story: I wasn’t athletic at all, so one day in 2nd grade when I made a goal in gym class I was so excited; it was a game like dodge ball and soccer mixed, played indoors. When I returned to my other teammates they were all pissed, and I was like WTF? I made a goal for the other team! 😳 Did I mention that I’m so glad to be out of school? hahaha

Stacie @ Imperfectly Imperfectly January 4, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Ahhh, farts are the worst! My most embarrassing moment is about farting too! Ha! I was in the middle of math class in high school and let out a LOUD one!! So embarrassing! I wanted to die. At least you had a reason for it – I didn’t!

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:03 pm

holy crap i’m dying over your fart story….

once i fully farted on my date. we were clothed and it wasn’t during any sexual times. simply sat up and out it came…..

he walked out never to be seen again.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Dying over YOUR fart story. Guys are so silly when it comes to girls farting. We get gas too, ya know.

Maren January 4, 2011 at 7:03 pm

I am really considering trying things with coconut in it… I want to try yours and Ashley’s fudge, but I’m so scared because I don’t really like coconut! Anyway, I would love to win some!! πŸ™‚ The first thing that came to mind was when I was in middle school, we all waited in this area right by the front doors that was a looong glass hallway. Well, as I was walking up to the front door, I biffed it on the ice and fell in front of EVERYONE!!! And everyone saw!! It was so awful!!! haha! If that happened now, I would probably just crack up and make fun of myself πŸ™‚

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:07 pm

I do love coconut, and so I’m pretty biased when it comes to the fudge, but I bet if you make Ashley’s version with the PB you may not be able to really taste the coconut at all.

Jenn @ Cooking Aweigh the Pounds January 4, 2011 at 7:01 pm

I’m kind of a ham so I don’t get embarrassed that often or that easily. However, at the a New Year’s Eve party this past weekend, we were all playing Dance Central on the Kinect. I was the only person that the Kinect thought was too exhausted to continue. In the middle of a dance routine, a message popped up on the Kinect that if I was too tired, I should take a break and sit down. The only problem was that I wasn’t too tired, I just sucked really really bad! LOL The message and insinuation did crack me up so much that I was unable to continue after that. πŸ™‚

Ginny January 4, 2011 at 7:01 pm

I ran to walmart during lunch one day to pick up a few things. I had to pee when I left work but didn’t stop by the bathroom. While in the store I couldn’t wait any longer and rushed into the bathroom. Finally relieved I came out to wash my hands and was impressed to see the mini urinal installed in the “women’s” restroom for mothers who have to take their sons in with them. How thoughtful, right? As I left the restroom I happened to notice the sign on the opposite door that said “Women”. I almost died because the guy in the layaway area saw me. Even worse, someone had come in and relieved themselves while I was in there. I thought they were awfully quick! I hurried to the checkout so I could get back to work and while waiting in line I stepped over to pick up a magazine and when I stepped back to my cart I fell flat on my butt. Someone had dropped a grape on the floor and I slipped on it. I was so embarassed for the second time in 5 minutes. I told my coworker to never let me go to wallyworld by myself at lunch again. At least I can still laugh about it becuase it was actually hilarious.

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 6:05 pm

Haha – mini urinal. That is so funny. πŸ™‚

Julia January 4, 2011 at 7:00 pm

As much as I want that Cacao Bliss, I’m too embarassed to post my most embarassing moment on here…. though I have to admit, I’m loving reading them.

Happy Belated Birthday, Heather!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Thanks Julia. πŸ™‚

Matt @ The Kitchen of a Runner January 4, 2011 at 6:59 pm

I played an entire tennis match in a pink shirt in front of my high school tennis team because I lost a bet. LOL.

I really want some of that cocoa bliss πŸ˜‰

Tyrah January 4, 2011 at 6:58 pm

oh my gosh, thanks for the laughs =)
One that comes to my head is the morning of my 16th birthday, my parents had planned a surprise party for me with a lot of my friends before school in the morning, we’d all have breakfast at the house together, etc. Well, when I actually woke up, a bunch of my closest friends were all standing around my bed and yelled surprise! I of course had some kind of acne mask, Neutrogena I think, on that I slept in dried all over my face, a little embarassing at 16. I pulled the sheet over my head until everyone left the room.

Christina January 4, 2011 at 6:56 pm

One of my most embarassing moments is when I was 17. I was waitressing and a table of cute boys came in. Their order came up but the server wasn’t there so another girl and I kinda argued over who got to take the food out to the table. I *won* but I ended up dropping the whole tray of hot food on one side of the booth. I about died but then the boys said something about hearing us argue over who got to take the food out and then I did die a little bit.

ezzie January 4, 2011 at 6:55 pm

When I was in 3rd grade, our school had a “Roman Day” for history class where everyone dressed up in ancient Roman costumes. I wore a dress, and for one of the activities we had to do a crab-walk all the way across the cafeteria. Well, I was wearing bright green underwear and I basically showed my entire class that bright green underwear. You can imagine the horror.

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:19 pm

OH MY GOSH!!! Who would suggest such an awful activity. That is amazing!! Doing the crab walk alone is embarrassing enough.

Tammy January 4, 2011 at 6:54 pm

There are sooo many! One of the worst was when I was 15 and taking scuba diving classes with my older sister at the YMCA and we were doing rough water simulation where the students would be swimming in full gear and the teachers would swim around and turn off our air regulators, pull off our masks etc..After one of the teacher aides (male and coincidentally went to my same high school) turned off my air, I adjusted for it and then felt the water felt different to me. I kept swimming and eventually noticed that my halter style swim suit had untied! To make matters worse my sister ran into him a few years ago and he brought up that incident. I am 53 years old!!!! I unfortunately have many more moments, but it was all I could do to relive this one!!!

Dido January 4, 2011 at 6:51 pm

I think this is my first comment here so… hi Heather! πŸ™‚
Is the giveaway for US residents only? If you are able to send it to the UK, then by any means I want to enter πŸ™‚
About embarrasing moments, well, let’s just say that inverted yoga postures do produce vaginal farting (please, someone tell me I’m not alone!)
Take care!

Julia January 4, 2011 at 8:02 pm

That happens to me too! One day I was the first back to work after lunch and stretched behind my desk (I had come from the gym) and right as my boss was walking in to her office (just past my desk) I let out this terrible huge sound during a handstand.

Melissa January 4, 2011 at 10:28 pm

No way!!!!!! Hahahaha!!!!!

HEAB January 5, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Haha – hilarious, and yes, the giveaway is open to UK residents if customs will allow me to send the cacao bliss. I don’t think it would be a problem.

Ellen @ Undercover Runner Eats January 4, 2011 at 6:50 pm

I don’t really have very embarassing moments, at least, nothing monumental.
Though, I do have a tendency to mix up the order of my words when I speak, so you can imagine some funny nonsensical sentences that arise from this condition.

Kelsey January 4, 2011 at 6:50 pm

My senior year of high school I was running late and backed out of my parents garage (one car sized garage doors) with one of my car’s back doors wide open. Needless to say it wedged my car door all the way so the outside of the back car door was flat against the outside of the front car door. Then I had to climb out and call my parents to come home and help me cover it since it chose then to start snowing.

Christin@purplebirdblog January 4, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Alright. So I was driving across the state with my ex. We were on a two-lane road in the country with no one around and I had to pee bad. It was nighttime, so we just pulled over and I peed my little heart out. Well, I didn’t realize I had also pushed out some poop during the pee process. I got back in the car and a little while later he’s all, “Did you step in sh*t?” I look at my shoes, nothing. It wasn’t until we got to a gas station later that I realized I had half crapped myself. I was a little drunk, if that makes it any better. πŸ˜‰

HEAB January 4, 2011 at 8:37 pm

I’m laughing so hard, I’m crying. Hahaha – thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚

Katie January 4, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Is that jar called Sativa almond butter? That’s my niece’s name!!
I’m not a fan of coconut, so no need to enter me, but I can’t resist telling an embarrassing story about myself.

I was a substitute teacher and it was the middle of the winter and freezing cold in the gym class (dance) that I was teaching. The kids were all being punks and the girl who was the WORST of them all had her arms tucked into her shirt. I yelled at her to pay attention and asked how she thought she could do the dance without her arms out of her shit….turns out, she didn’t have arms. I haven’t ever told anyone that story. I was MORTIFIED.

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm

oh my god!!! i’m laughing but it’s sooo not funny.

HEAB January 4, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Oh my gosh – definitely mortifying! And it’s Sattva almond butter. Not sure what that means. Sativa is a beautiful name. I love that.

Gavi @ GaviGetsGoing! January 4, 2011 at 6:46 pm

Just call me Janet Jackson: I definitely had a bit of a “nip slip” at my senior prom. Yep, that’s right–my dress was quite revealing, and my double-sided tape job didn’t really hold up. My date definitely got more than he bargained for that night! πŸ™‚

Jules January 4, 2011 at 6:45 pm

I’m a middle school reading teacher. Two years ago, when a group of my 7th graders were scattered around the room reading silently, I was moving around the room to conference with them and talk with them about their reading. I was working with a boy named Nick, when a boy named Dylan across the room starting goofing around. I wanted to get Dylan’s attention, but I was sitting next to Nick, and when I called out Dylan’s name, it came out as “Dick” (a hybrid of Dylan and Nick). And I didn’t whisper it; I used my sternest teacher voice. Awesome. As my colleague put it, “10 years from now, these kids may not remember what they read in your class, but they’ll certainly remember the day you called one of them a d***!” I’m a pretty clumsy person, and have no problem embarassing myself, but I have never been more mortified in my life.

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm


HEAB January 4, 2011 at 8:33 pm

Oh my gosh – your comment has me laughing out loud. Can’t wait to share it with CD over dinner.

Melissa January 4, 2011 at 10:24 pm

That is soooooooooo funny!!!

Baking 'n' Books January 5, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Oh my God – what did the kids say though?! That’s hilarious.

Baking 'n' Books January 4, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Do you mix up your oat-bran mixture or eat it by the layer? πŸ˜‰

Your embarrassing moment is hilarious! Were you teased – forever?!

Oh goodness, my life is a series of embarrasing moments. Only one? This is what I should write a book about.

But, I guess a *few* of those nights in College when I “imbibed” too much, hence getting the nerves (or stupidity) enough to dance the night (crazily) away with cute guys I worked with and had major crushes on…and I am not a good dancer…and I had to see them next day…

I think I’d rather fart. πŸ˜‰

Samantha January 4, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Unfortunately I’m good at making myself look ridiculous and horrible, even when I don’t try. In college I worked in a tack shop (horse supplies). A baseball player from a local college team came in looking for rosin for his glove because the sports store was out. I told him we didn’t have the kind in a tube but we had baggies of rosin in rock form, but he was unsure how to use it. I proceeded to walk over to the wall where a bullrope was hanging and said (while doing an up and down motion with my hand closed around the rope) “You put the rocks in your hand, rub up and down and the friction causes it to heat up and get sticky.” His face turned beet red, I realized what I said and how it “looked” and tried to apology, but he rushed out quickly thanking me for my time and said he’d look for ball glove rosin.

HEAB January 4, 2011 at 8:30 pm

Haha – too funny. πŸ™‚

Kat January 4, 2011 at 6:37 pm

I’m sure there have been many since then, but in 3rd grade I wasn’t feeling well and it was standardized testing time, so I told the teacher I needed the bathroom, but we’d already had our *chance to go*…. then I vomited all over the test. I got to go home, but what was more embarrassing was when I had to make up the exam – they had the one I’d puked all over in a bag! I guess it’s illegal to throw them away? so embarrassing… and gross πŸ™‚

Danielle January 4, 2011 at 6:34 pm

It was the 1st day of high school and I had on these awesome heeled sandals. Carrying my lunch tray, I tripped on something on the floor. My left shoe went flying across the room and hit a cute guy in the leg. Needless to say, I never wore those shoes again.

Jenika January 4, 2011 at 6:32 pm

Ahh, I will always love farting stories!

My most embarrasing moment happened at a group meditation retreat, where we had to maintain silence for 10 days. One day, I was late for meditation and rushed to the hall in my PJ pants. I squated down a little too quickly and tore a giant hole in the crotch area. The sound was a TV-comedy-worthy loud RIIIIIP. I was so embarassed. The best part is, nobody was allowed to say anything because of the silence rule.

HEAB January 4, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I don’t think I could have held in my laughter. That is hilarious!

Amalfi Girl (EatRunHaveFun!) January 4, 2011 at 6:30 pm

One time in college I was rushing from one class to another in the middle of the campus at peak time (just after lunch), so basically everyone who went to class was in that area rushing along with me, and out of nowhere my boot heel caught on a crack in the walkway and I was flat on my back. In front of everyone. Nice.

Amanda B. January 4, 2011 at 6:23 pm

That looks so good!

I’m a klutz so I’ve had plenty of embarassing moments. One that sticks out was during a high school cross country meet. I was coming out of the woods, maybe 100yds or so away from the finish line, so I started sprinting (or as close to it as you get at the end of a race). Out of nowhere I tripped on a root and fell FLAT on my face, like 50yds from the finish line, in front of a huge crowd of cheering people. Leave it to me to wait until there’s a crowd watching to trip. I still finished, and PR’d, lol.


Heather January 4, 2011 at 6:22 pm

When I was in 6th grade, for Halloween I dressed up as Dolly Parton…the blond wig, the high-heeled cowboy boots and of course, the large padded bra (I didn’t grow, height and boobs, until high school). Anyways, my mom took a picture of me sideways, so you could really see my assets. Shortly after Halloween, she had lunch with my principal and showed him the pictures. Very embarrassing.

Sylvia @ LifeIsGoodWithFood January 4, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Two of my best friends, one male and one female, were over at my house chilling for Thanksgiving break. I decided that I needed to go to the bathroom so I went in. As I was sitting on the toilet doing my business, my male friend decided to be funny and made a joke about knocking down the bathroom door while I was still behind it. He knew I had locked the door so he figured that he was just going to get a rise of me.

He playfully “rammed” into the door, the door gave way because our lock was very flimsy, and we looked at each other. And then we both screamed. And then he ran out.

Even to this day, we don’t make much mention of it. πŸ™‚

lindsay (goodiesgalore) January 4, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Ahahahaha, love that he screamed too!

Jessica January 4, 2011 at 6:04 pm

When I was in the 8th grade…I farted during a moment of silence at church. I was so embarrased that I ran out and locked myself in the bathroom. My youth director tried to crawl under the bathroom stal to get me to come out but my mortified teenage girlness wouldn’t open the door until my mom came and got me.

Kimberly @ Healthy Strides January 4, 2011 at 6:03 pm

I worked at a Girl Scout camp the summer I was 14. At the end of the summer, after all the campers had left, we threw a staff party. Some of us who had worked the last week decided to “dress up,” throwing together whatever clothes, sheets and items we could for a fun outfit. I wore a silky PJ top that came had been my grandma’s. When I went out to announce dinner, my hand snagged the top and ripped it open. I was mortified!
