Embarrassing moments - #02

 

Embarrassing moments
 
Canada
This is a story from when I was 10 years old and still living in Necochea. I was in Grade 5, and I was madly in love with a girl in my class. I have written a story about this a few months ago, which I will publish once I’m done translating it into English…
 
I remember we were out on a school trip. We were having a picnic at the Nautical Club in Necochea, by the margins of Quequén River (very close to where my blogbuddy Katie lives now). After lunch, we all broke out, running around the place. Seeing that my loved one was nearby, I decided to impress her with my athleticism, so I climbed up a tree and once I was sitting way up high, I started to call her:
 
- Hey! Hello! Can you see me? I’m up here!!!
 
She turned to me and gave me a brief but amused look; then she replied:
 
- Yes, I do see you. In fact, I see everything.
 
I was wearing shorts, because we had been playing soccer earlier. My underwear had betrayed me! Not only I could not impress her as planned, I ended humiliated as well… (well, it’s not that there was a lot to be impressed about, not at 10, nor at 42 years old…) :-)
 
 
ArgentinaEsta historia es de cuando tenía 10 años y aún vivía en Necochea. Cursaba quinto grado en la escuela, y entre mis compañeros había una niña de la que yo estaba profundamente enamorado. Tengo escrita una historia sobre este tema desde hace tiempo, la cual publicaré una vez que la termine de traducir al inglés…
 
Habíamos salido con todo el curso a hacer un paseo. Si no recuerdo mal, habíamos tenido un picnic en el Club Náutico de Necochea, sobre las márgenes del Río Quequén (muy cerquita de donde mi blogbuddy Katie vive ahora). Luego de comer, salimos todos desbandados a correr por las inmediaciones. Viendo a mi amor imposible cerca, pensé en impresionarla con mi atleticismo, por lo que procedí a treparme a un árbol cercano y, encaramado bien arriba, comencé a llamarla:
 
- Hey! Hola! Me ves? Acá estoy!!!
 
Mi amada me dirigió una breve pero divertida mirada, y luego contestó, lapidaria:
 
- Sí, te veo. Es más, se te ve todo.
 
Yo tenía unos pantalones cortos puestos, porque habíamos jugado al futbol. Se ve que mi ropa interior me traicionó… No sólo no pude impresionarla, sino que terminé humillado. Seamos realistas, no había mucho con qué impresionar (ni a los 10, ni a los 42…) :-)

  3. No, ni cerca.
    Mejor que sea por sorpresa. Nunca sabrás cuando está por llegar.

  5. Oh, lol. I guess you didn't know that as soon as someone says 'look at me' or 'see what I can do' they are bound to be humiliated in some fashion. Trust me, I know about these things :)
