How Embarrassment!!!!

Okay, so on Wednesday I had to perform at the launch of the National Youth Awards in Darwin. Not just me by myself, but me and the other girls in my dance class, you know what I mean!! So, as you do, we decided we would do the Can Can, coz we are just SO good at it you know. After a few days of practice, and remembering the routine we were ready to rumble!!! When we got to the venue, we saw how small the stage was and were thankful that there was only four of us in the routine (there was NO way more of us could have been on there!!). After a few quick run throughs, we were all good..............or so we thought!!!

We then went backstage and finalised our costumes/makeup and kept warming up and practicing lifts and things like that. We were supposed to be on at 10.27am (exactly). We were all so used to waiting around to go on stage that I was surprised that we would be on at such a time. My dance teacher was in the bathroom when we heard a frantic "You're on NOW!"

The three of us were like "what??"

"YOU"RE ON NOW!!!!!!!!!"

3 of us: "SHAUNA!!"

We couldn't find where she was, so one girl and myself went out on stage only to realise that the music had already started playing................we decided to just stand there and ruffle our skirts about and smile. Then Shauna and Madeline came up on stage and by that time, the music was halfway through the dance and none of us knew what part we were up to. We tried to do a few kicks and I tried to follow what Shauna was doing, but alas, it was unsuccessful. I looked at Madeline and she looked at me and we both had that look in your eyes that said "this is a joke!!"

Shauna realised we couldn't keep stuffing around and in fact, the audience were actually laughing at us, so she was like "Cut, we have to start again!!"

Then she was like "sorry, I was in the bathroom............" This created more laughter from the audience.

We then did the dance again, pretty well I must say for people who had just recently suffered severe embarrassment. Though there was this one woman in the audience who kept cracking up the whole time, so I don't know whether that was a good thing.

We were also on the news for two seconds (our stuff up was not though!!).

Well, that is my most recent embarrassing story, I'm glad I could share it with you!!!

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: We used to laught at Grandpa when he'd head off and go fishing. But we wouldn't be laughing that evening when he'd come back with some whore he picked up in town.
