Awkward Moments Day
What is an Awkward Moment?

It is that brief moment in time when we feel inept, embarassed, unsure, or uneasy. They are those brief seconds which seem like minutes and those minutes which seem like hours. It is the time we lose some of our lofty self image. It is that humbling period of time when confidence is replaced by uncertainty and the arrogant become mere mortals again.
