“Forgive me father, for I have sinned” – I have always found this culture of confession in Christianity intriguing and fascinating. Recently, I was reading a trilogy of thrillers about the Vatican where the author mentioned that confession was originally not a part of Christianity but evolved over time.
Facebook, in the last two years, had this crazy viral fever of confession pages. I think humanity is voyeuristic in nature and loves to feed on gossip and juicy stories about others. The whole idea of “confession” is so dramatic that ‘Truth or Dare’ is a favourite pastime among a large section of the society.
Every person has some secrets that are dear to their own self. Some anecdotes, memories or events that are specially their own. It could be a liking, a crush or an embarrassment. I see no need for them to come out in public and scream from the rooftop about it.
Seven years ago, I made a confession. Because I felt that the person I made the confession to deserved to know it. That apart, my life is like an open book on social media for everyone to pry on. But yes. I do have my own little secrets, and I will take them with me to the grave.
But since this topic requires me to divulge at least one little factoid about me, unknown to many, I will have to play by the rules (or else some of my readers will get disappointed). So here goes. I have a crush (a huge one) on someone. I do flirt with him often. I wish one day he will get my hints winks
Hope your innate thirst for knowledge of personal details of others in now satiated. Good day to all.

It is rather difficult for me to cite one specific embarrassing moment because I have encountered many. Instead of detailing out one experience, I want to describe a few embarrassing situations I have often found myself in. Isn’t that fun?
1. Fashion disaster – Fashion and I live poles apart. But I often suffer from wardrobe malfunction. When I leave home for office, many a times I have seen a naughty smile on the face of onlookers. It goes without saying that I had my fly open. Also, I remember one instance where I spent one whole day at a local shopping mall, window shopping, while wearing my tee inside out!
2. Restaurant escapades – During college days, whenever Bham and I met, we’ve had these embarrassing situations when we found the prices on the menu way above our budget and we had to walk out of the restaurant surreptitiously! Back then we did not have Zomato, and we had to solely rely on our experience.
3. Walking disaster – Although my friends exaggerate this part, I was a walking disaster in college. Thanks to my problem of concentration tremors, I have often broken beakers, dropped test tubes, screwed up intricate measurements during Practical classes. The breaking of the table lamp at Rishyap is a legend in itself!
I cannot think of any other instances of embarrassment. If my readers (who know me personally) can recollect any, please share. Spread happiness and joy!
