Today is one more day which I can list in one of the most embarrassing day in my life. In spite of being in such an embarrassing situation today, the mere thought of it is making me laugh on my stupidity.
This embarrassing time started with a phone call which I got this morning as I reached office. It was my colleague's call who asked me to hurry to the ground which was near to my office. On asking her the reason she told me that some competition is held there and so she wants me to come. Hearing this I got excited as I thought that there must be some competition in which kids would participate in singing or dancing or may be some rangoli competition which I could capture in my cell phone. Without a second thought I left office immediately and reached the place as told by her only to know that it was a complete different scene there from what I had expected it to be.
To my shock it was not any easy participation but it was a women's throw ball competition of my office staff Vs some other office staff. Even before I was out of this shock they gave me another shock saying they want me to participate in it. My ear drums burst when I heard such a thing. All my efforts to deny it went it vain. A girl who was never involved in any outdoor sports even during the primary schooling was now a player in a team representing my office.
A voice from my brain started taunting and teasing me with a wicked laugh *Khi Khi Khi Khi, Ab kya karegi Sonia?*
Within no time they instructed me the rules of the game and the game started. I was surprised to see a lady of age around 54 years who was so active and was playing so well and me being so young was standing numb like a statue looking here and there. I could not catch a single throw :-((. I heard my office political people commenting in Kannada, "Shaalege Hoglilva Ninu, Aata aadlilva? Ille direct appoint aagi bandiddiya?"(Din't you ever go to school and play? Are you directly appointed here?) I ignored them at that moment and prayed god to tear the earth wide open and engulf me inside it. I was just waiting eagerly for that embarrassing time to pass by soon and at last the game was finished.
Result was obvious. My office lost terribly. Well, its an understood fact that how can a team win if it has great players like me. :-P
So readers, have you ever been in such an awkward moment in your life? Then share it here in comments and lets laugh out hard and overcome that awkwardness which is still somewhere in our mind :-)
P.S: Just finished reading a book "Life is what you make it" by Preeti Shenoy. A very nice book with a inspiring story of Ankita's life. The author is capable to create the magic of words in this. I suggest every girl has to read this book. :)
