Most embarrassing moment
In middle school, my crush and I rode the same bus. One day, as we pulled up to the school in the morning, I decided to be super alluring by carelessly throwing my hair over my shoulder as I sauntered down the bus stairs. Well – I got a little too into this hair toss and ended up falling down the stairs right onto my butt, anchored down by my heavy backpack just long enough to pin me down to the bus stairs, which were wet. Great day to wear khaki pants! I ran as quickly as I could from the scene of the crime. True love was not present that day on bus 16.
What time period would you visit in history?
I would love to relive the 90s as an adult
