Awkward Moments – Streams of Consciousness Saturday.

I guess we all have an awkward moment now and again, but as long as it’s not fatal, we live through it and sometimes even find them quite amusing later. One of the moments I constantly feel that awkward silence is getting on a lift with strangers. I wonder if it’s the confining space, but there’s always this pervasive silence that hangs thick in the air and sometimes I try to break the silence by saying hello.socsbadge2016-17

On the other hand, I brought on my latest mortifying moment while doing a vegetable smoothie cleanse. I know that it’s a good thing but believe when I say that it does have its downsides as well πŸ™‚

Two weeks ago, I was tired of feeling tired and heavy, so I decided to do a three days vegetable smoothie cleanse to flush my system because it felt sluggish, so I prepared a jug of veggie smoothie and took it overnight.

By morning time, I was happy to let out the junk in my trunk and went to the gym for a quick workout. I was happily trudging away on the stepper with my headphones and fave music blasting away when I had a grip of tummy rumbling gas. Feeling flustered, I gingerly tried to step off and get to the restroom, but alas, I didn’t make it!

Some noisome toot unwittingly Β escaped by themselves overriding my will and grace to be ladylike. Based on the startled and judging looks that other patrons gave me, I guess it was loud enough (though I didn’t’ hear them because of my headphones).

Not my best moment yet, but hey, we all have those awkward moments in our lives and it’s just fine. Sometimes nature gets the better of you πŸ˜‰

Our SOC’s prompt for today is ‘awkward’Β and our gracious hostess for this weekend is Joey of JoeyfullyΒ Stated. Good job my lady.

  1. That must really have been awkward! Reminds of the time when I was in the dressing room of a shopping mall and heard ‘noises’ from the cube next to mine, I had no idea what was going on in there! My sister was outside waiting for me and when I went out, she and I both were trying to come up with our own versions of what could be happening! πŸ˜€

  2. Ah, yes, the most nutritious things produce the most urgent escapes! Good to get all those nutrients, and people at the gym of all places should be understanding πŸ™‚ Also, they all had a funny lil story to tell after!
