“Share some embarrassing moments you faced in life honestly,” a colleague told me.
I blushed at first but then pressed the rewind button.
I remembered my trainee days when I got a rebuke from the editor for repeatedly pronouncing Sean Connery as “Seen” Connery and not “Schon.”
Another awkward moment was when I was sleeping after night shift and the grocery man knocked at the door. “You are always sleeping at home, while your wife works hard,” he advised. I refused to give him tip that day saying I am jobless.
A different uncomfortable moment was when I was newly married and offered to take my wife on a bicycle ride in Chennai. Moments later we both fell on the road and I instantly blamed her of being too fat. She did not talk to me the whole day.
