Embarrassing moments ... they're proof of Mother Nature's bad sense of humor. And when those embarrassing moments happen when you're trying to impress a guy on a date or during sex (gah!), it's even worse.

But, once time has passed and you've gotten a couple of good therapy sessions in, you learn to laugh about those mortifying incidents.

I've totally been guilty of this week's embarrassing moment, but lucky for me, it wasn't in front of a cute guy.


I take a bus to work every day. One day, as I was getting off the bus, I looked out and saw a super-hot guy. As we made eye contact, it felt like a slow-moving scene in a movie. That is, until I fell down the stairs. And I'm not just talking a little stumble -- I mean a full-fledged wipeout. My purse and its contents went flying, my knees and elbows got scraped up. The cute boy rushed over to help me, but I was beyond mortified. And unlike in Hollywood, no lifelong relationship came out of it, just humiliation.

Have you ever fell in front of someone you were hoping to impress?
