Embarassing Moment

Well, the audition went well. We should know something in the next few days. So I'll let you know if hear any good news.

For the audition, my friend L. and I were standing in front of a blue screen being interviewed together on camera. I think they were trying to get an idea of our personalities and how we interact as friends. They asked us several questions, and they asked me to tell about my most embarassing moment. So...I thought I'd share it with you, too!

In the summer of 1993, I spent half a summer in Eastern Europe. The other women I was traveling with noticed (as did I) that in broad daylight, various drunk men would simply walk up to us and grope us. Needless to say, it was very disconcerting. I decided that the next time it happened, I would do something strong like shove the guy away from me to let him know that his groping wasn't appreciated.

The morning after I made that decision, I was in a lovely bank with marble columns--the last place you'd expect any trouble--changing money. As I was signing on the transaction, I saw a stranger approaching out of the corner of my eye. I felt a tap, tap, tap on the side of my boob. Immediately, I went into denial. "Surely this isn't happening." But a few seconds later, I felt the tap, tap, tap again. So I turned to the strange man, shoved him away from me and like a polite Texan girl said, "Stop it, please!" In broken English, the man politely responded, "I am very sorry." I got a good look at him for the first time and noticed that he had a long silver cane in his hand. He was blind and just feeling his way along! My boob just got in the way! I then started apologizing and the poor man walked away.

I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. I think I did a little of both.

That's awesome. You assaulted a blind man. You're bad. I once accidentally assaulted a blind girl myself. I feel your pain. But I'm still going to pretend that what you did is much much worse.

LOL OMG how funny.....kinda.

Omg! That is embarassing, but understandable given the circumstances. I'm excited to hear about the interview! My fingers are crossed.

The Cachinnator said...

Well??? Have you heard anything?

Tracy said...

Still haven't heard anything, Cach! I'll post something either way!

See, so the poor blind man suffered for the sins of his countrymen. If they hadn't been such jerks, you wouldn't have done that. Don't worry..maybe he was a groper before he lost his eyesight. ;) Maybe some offended woman poked his eyes out. Ooops. Now I've gone too far.
