I’m certainly not proud of this, but once in Grade 4 in the middle of class I started picking my nose and some girl saw me. I thought I was safely hidden in the corner but she saw me and I’ll never forget the look of disgust on her face. I kind of had a crush on her but I knew that I had ruined any chance I had with her. I’m surprised she even saw me. She was one of the smartest kids in school and sat at the front of class and was always looking at the teacher and paying attention.
Why did she turn all the way around to look at me in the back? I picked my nose while the teacher was talking so she should’ve been looking at the teacher and paying attention. Did she turn to look at me because maybe… just maybe… she had a crush on me?! Wishful thinking, I know, I know. Plus even if she did like me, after she saw me pick my nose she definitely thought, “Ew, I don’t want his boogery fingers anywhere near me.”
Anyway, the moral of this story is: Don’t pick your nose in public! Also, please share your embarrassing stories so I feel better. The only reason I’m sharing this is because I am trying to blog everyday and I only had about 20 minutes to come up with something to post. Which brings us to the second moral of the story: don’t sit down to blog 20 minutes before midnight because when you’re under pressure to post, you’ll end up posting something embarrassing.
