So last night I was with a bunch of my friends that I've known since elementary school-we basically all grew up within 5 minutes of each other's houses and have been friends for mostly forever. And this one really embarassing story came up and I figured...oh why not share it with you guys? Right?
Here's what happened. Me and my bff were in 8th grade English class with a teacher who was (until that day) my favorite. We were supposed to be writing in our journals and while we were free to write whatever in the world we wanted--there was always a chance that the teacher would pick a journal at random to read to the class.
Which meant you had to be very careful about what you wrote in there.
Anyway, my bff and I were kind of in a silly mood and trying to read what the other was writing in their journal, so we started writing each other's names down to make the other paranoid and make it seem like we were writing about the other.
At least I thought that's what we were doing.
See my journal entry looked something like this:
Blah blah blah BFF's NAME yadda yadda yadda BFF thinks Im writing about her, but I'm just writing yadda yadda yadda, haha BFF nonsense word nonsense word BFF
Well...BFF's journal did NOT say Yadda Yadda Yadda. It in fact made a lot of sense. But I didn't know this until our English teacher--seeing how much we were distracting each other--chose HER journal, not mine to read to the whole class.
And it said this:
OMG I have to write down this most serious secret about Frankie. I mean, really, it has to be said. Frankie is absolutely positively head over heels in love with CUTE BOY* and its all Frankie can talk about. CUTE BOY this and CUTE BOY that. Frankie wants to marry CUTE BOY and have CUTE BOY babies!
*name changed to protect the innocent
Well after our English teacher read this, the whole room erupted in laughter and I gave my bff the most stank stink eye possible.
Anyway, one would think the humiliation would have ended there.
Or at least, my English teacher's role in the fiasco would have stopped.
But no. He stayed involved.
See, CUTE BOY was the lead in the school play. And our English teacher was the play director...
So that VERY afternoon, English teacher goes to run play rehearsal with CUTE BOY. And just before rehearsal can start, he pulled CUTE BOY off to the side and in a not so quiet voice said:
CUTE BOY, I think you should know...Frankie is in love with you!
To which CUTE BOY responded....Oh, and went on with rehearsal.
Now you want to know to the really surprising part of this whole thing?
I didn't even LIKE CUTE BOY! At all.
Yeah...Thanks a lot BFF!
Needless to say the whole thing died down pretty quickly and me and my bff are still bffs, but for a minute it's was touch and go there with us.
So have you ever had a crazy middle school humiliation?
