We’ve all had them. Maybe it’s that moment you realize you just had a whole conversation with your crush while some green leafy thing was flapping around in your teeth. Or maybe it’s the moment you realize that after performing an impressive backflip into the pool, your boob is now hanging out of your bathing suit. Or it’s definitely the moment you realize you’ve come out of the washroom with tissue hanging out of your pants. (Warning, ladies: if you like to line toilet seats so you don’t sit in something funky, this could be you!)
But despite the horror of your everyday embarrassments, there’s nothing quite like having one in front of a celebrity. So I gathered up my personal foibles and asked Teddy and Ajay to share (look for their stories next week). We hope these tales put a smile on your face (and also hope you don’t think less of us).
A friend of mine at work loved to flip me the bird whenever he had the chance. Let’s call him Birdflipman. He flipped the bird so often that it had become a bit of a competition between us: whoever could birdflip the most in a day would win. (Real mature, I know.) All day we would attempt to out-flip each other at the most inopportune times–coming out of a meeting, the washroom, out in the parking lot–I never knew when I would be confronted with his middle finger in my face.
One day, Ajay and I had just finished interviewing the gorgeous Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones) in our studio. Jason had gone over to eTalk to do more interviews while Ajay and I carried on with our show. In between takes, I was getting my makeup touched up when I heard a loud knocking on our studio window. Someone was trying to get my attention and I suspected it was Birdflipman! Without looking, I stuck out my middle finger. That’s when Ajay said to me “Uh…that was Jason Mamoa you just gave the finger to.”
Come again? Gak... Egad… Aaaaaah!!!
I can only hope Mr. Mamoa didn’t see it, or he thought it was so outrageous that it was kind of funny. Needless to say, the game between Birdflipman and I is over.
