cross-baked :: boot

Miss Jane perused her basement full of stitchwork, in an I’m-not-embarrassed sort of way, and thought “not since College, eh” well it’s a good thing I spent half the night sharpening these nice needles to such shiny, sharp points; I knew they’d come in handy.

The Criminal :: Randy

When I coughed (I was so embarrassed!) feathers flew out of my mouth: little ones, tiny ones, black and red, curving through the air, perfectly unbloodied and almost comical but, yes, entirely, yes, criminal because, you see, all those who were around me, and there were at least a dozen, stopped what they were doing and stared, all eyes on me, all black and no red, water still dripping from our beaks, amazed that I could cough (I didn’t know either! who among us can cough!) but distracted by the fact a murder came out of my throaty anomoly: little ones, tiny ones, black and red.

yesterday, i found myself smiling at a cute pudgy little baby, then opening the door for his stroller, then tripping over the curb that i wasn’t looking at and sprawling across the asphalt; i’ve got a bruised shoulder and two skinned knees, and i should have a bruise on my ego as well, but apparently i’m no longer capable of embarrassment (i laughed, so did the baby).

life is over :: Br. Ezra

Now that the maintenance man has seen me naked my life is strangely complete…can you die of embarrassment?

    TAGS:  embarrassment, nakedness, full exposure

After years of therapy, I was finally able to admit that lying about owning a house giraffe was actually nothing more than a lifetime of pent up frustration regarding my mother’s embarrassingly long neck.
