If you have ever tripped in front of someone, had milk come out your nose, or split your pants, you were probably pretty embarrassed. Do that in front of your crush, you’re mortified. Some students at Campbell County High School have experienced that level of humiliation.
“Every morning I drink milk in the commons before school,” freshman Xander Beeson said. “When I saw my crush, I had the instinct that I should try to be normal. She walked by me and then said “Hi” to me. I stared at her, shivered, and spilled milk all over myself.”
“I am a very clumsy person,” junior Alayna Carmien said. “As I was walking down the hall, I face-planted right in front of my crush. I turned as red as a tomato; it was so embarrassing.”
“My crush was teaching me an easier way to do multiplication,” sophomore Arleth Rodriguez said. “When he asked me what 6×8 was, I replied with 54…then 46…then 48. It was so embarrassing. Afterward, he said that he’d thought I was smart.”
“Last summer I went to Georgia like I do every summer,” sophomore Kristin May said. “We were hanging out outside and my crush noticed my bikini top starting to fall off. My sister had to rush over and tie it.”
Some students at CCHS experience awkward crush moments during sports.
“I am a wrestling manager this year and my crush is a wrestler,” junior Nevada Larson said. “When I was giving my crush his water bottle, everyone started chanting our names. It was horrible and embarrassing, but I am still friends with him.”
“In November, I was playing basketball with my boyfriend,” freshman Paulina Benavides said. “When I passed the ball to him, I accidentally threw the ball at his face.”
So you’re not alone. But don’t worry, it isn’t like you could die from embarrassment…unless you are Thane Zickefoose
“Last year when I was in Moldova, I was walking to my bus stop with my girlfriend,” senior Thane Zickefoose said. “I went to hug her and I fell on the ice in front of the bus and almost got ran over.”
