Embarrassing Moment..

My friend Hilary, who was my roommate my freshman year at USU, has moved to the Denver area as well, and we met up today and had lunch. It's been years since I've seen her! We got talking about people that lived by us, and memories we had. That was a great year living at Pine View apartments! I was reminded of a pretty embarrassing moment that I suffered through that year. We were in our spring semester, and I was in an English Literature class with Hilary, our roommate Hannah, and friends Jackie and Amanda. We despised this class, our teacher was psycho! We also had in our class a guy we liked to call the fireman, who always sat by us in class. Funny kid. Anywho, one particular day, our professor was in the front of the class (mind you, there were probably just about 30 of us, small class), reading something. I had dropped my pencil. So I decided I needed to pick it up. But the problem was, in this classroom, the seats were the ones like in high school that had the bar on the right connecting to the small desktop. My pencil had fallen to the right of the desk. So I thought, "I'll just reach over this bar, and pick it up." As you all know, I'm a short girl, so that means not only do I have short legs, my arms also aren't that long. So I reach over the bar and down to pick up my pencil. I had to reach so far that my desk tipped over. But the thing is, I didn't tip all the way over to the floor, I got jammed into the next desk over, belonging to the fireman! My legs are flailing, and I'm pleading for someone to help me. My roommates and friends were laughing too hard to do anything, as well as the fireman. So I'm left dangling for a bit. The best part is that the professor didn't stop the lecture, she just kept right on reading as if nothing was going on!! Finally, fireman pushed my desk back to normal and picked up my pencil. My friends and I couldn't stop laughing the rest of class and to this day if it's brought up, lots of laughs are shared. My friends that weren't in that class know it enough that they share it with others. So I thought I would share that pretty embarrassing moment with you all, great image huh?! Maybe next time I'll share my "coat getting stuck in the door" embarrassing moment. :)
