Totally Awkward Tuesday Time

I have decided to participate in Totally Awkward Tuesday with Tova at her blog, Secret Life of Tova Darling. I'll try to tie it into my creative theme I have going here, so here I go.

In a former life, I was a girl scout. Every summer, we'd have a week long summer day camp. This was something I looked forward to every year... up until after the third grade.

So, it was the summer after I finished the third grade. This year at Girl Scout Camp, we'd be doing all kinds of crafts, making creative kiddie crafts, and swimming. This particular day at Girl Scout Camp, we made these weird ceramic things with our hand prints in it. After we were done, we were to let them dry by the big sliding glass doors.

Now mind you, ever since I was born, I have been a very clumsy person. Give me a pair of rollar skates, I'll fall on my face. Tell me to climb up a staircase, you'll hear a big "KA-THUNK" thirty seconds later.

The end of the day came faster than I knew it. I went over to the sliding glass doors to see if my dad was in the parking lot yet, and then... I look down. I totally forgot that the weird ceramic things were drying exactly were I was standing.

But luckily for me, no one was looking, so I just stepped aside like nothing happened. I went home that day and came back the next day.

We gathered at the flagpole, like we did every morning, and something along these lines were said, "Yesterday afternoon, someone stepped in the weird ceramic things we made. If anyone knows who did this, please tell us. You will be awarded."

Oh no! I thought. I'm a criminal.

I had to take very obnoxious measures to make sure I was not caught. I had to make sure all the ceramic crap was cleaned off the bottom of my shoes before I went to camp the next day. I walked without picking up my feet, so no one could tell what the patterns were on the bottom of my shoes. I could of sworn one the other girl's dad was a secret agent, coming to investigate the "Crime Scene".

None the less, I was never caught. Yes, I have horrible karma as of today. But oh well. Such is life. This isn't the moral I should be portraying, but then yet, since when is coming clean to the mean Girl Scout Leaders the right thing to do? :)
