Today is Mia Monday over at Terra del Sole, so here you are, an embarrassing moment of my life:
I was 11, I attended junior high, and was a very shy and introverted girl, so I can not understand how they decided that I had to play a role in a recital.
May be it was just for that, to help me overcoming my fears, or it was the fact that I had a boy cut, the teachers decided that I had to be Julius Caesar.
Luckily I had only to say five words "Quoque tu Brute, filii mihi", and fall down on the floor, murdered.
So I had to wear this white bed sheet, like a toga, and a laurel wreath, but when my moment came, I could not remember a single word, and, on top of this, someone in the public said "Look, Julius Caesar wears a watch!"
(Hey! Nobody's told me that I wasn't supposed to wear a watch).
Oh my! What's worse than that?
( I know, I know, there are many things worse than that, but not for me in THAT moment ).
At last, some pious soul (my teacher) suggested me, and finally I said my part.
Definitely acting is not my thing.
And fortunately embarrassing moments pass.
In effect I've had worse moments than that, but by any means I will tell you, promise! ;)
