There are moments where, if your life were a film being directed by John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), you’d hear the sound effect of a needle on record player going phrrrrrrrp! and everything goes silent and all eyes turn to stare at you.
Sometimes people say things, wishing they could grab their words out of the air and jam them back in their mouth before anyone else notices them. But you can’t do it. I’ve tried! It just makes you want to burp. So, we just swallow and mutter something, anything, to put punctuation on the embarrassment so we can move forward and rebuild the smoking crater of our dignity.
It’s not that these conversational FAILs happen only with the opposite sex, it’s just that they happen especially with the opposite sex. Even all grown up, I think we all keep trying to talk to girls (or whatever your preference), or bosses or friends or whoever, and occasionally say things that make us wonder if the heat in our faces is going to set off the fire alarm, or if a person can actually fit under a rock if you tried to go away and crawl under one. That’s just a hazard of living life and talking to other people. Superman on a hot dog.
We shared this amazing video on our Facebook Page last week and I told our readers that I would throw a graphic of the punch-line together if they Liked and Shared it. Viola! Thanks, everyone!
