These happen to everyone, whether you’re on the street or in a coffee shop, you can’t avoid them. People spend their lives trying to avoid as many awkward situations as possible. But what happens when you LIKE awkward situations? Sure everyone hates the really awkward ones, but some I find are just to hilarious. I thrive on them!
You probably are wondering why on earth anyone would like even minor awkward situations. Maybe it’s because I’ve grown up an awkward person in general, or maybe it’s just because I’m a bit strange and have a curved funny bone. Where it came from, I don’t know, but it’s true. Have you ever enjoyed an awkward situation? If you think deeply enough, you know you have. They are just far too hilarious, even in the scenario that it’s happening to you.Imagine the people speculating the awkward situation, if you were watching in their shoes. It would be pretty darn funny now wouldn’t it?
Now just the other day I had my own awkward occurence. I was out on a long bike ride around the city with my friend to enjoy the weather and the return of the biking season (and because I was bored ;P). On part of our trip we had to travel down a busy road that had no curb or sidewalk on the side we were on. This road is also very bumpy, and full of cracks and potholes with gravel sides. During our ride along here my friend hit one of the potholes and swerved slightly to the left. On an ordinary urban road, this wouldn’t have been a problem, but unfortunately it was not. They ended up swerving off the road and on to the gravel, causing their bike to slide. They stopped abruptly in order to not fall over… this was a good but bad move. Behind them, I was riding fairly swiftly on my racing bike, sitting up so my hands were nowhere near the brakes to give my back a break from crunching over. I ran right into him. Because we are both ninjas, he rides heavy on a heavy mountain bike and I ride lightly on a light race bike, no one was hurt at all but IT WAS REALLY FUNNY. Well, to me and my amusement at awkward situations. Can you imagine what the tons of people in the cars passing by thought? Ahha…
Anyway, I find amusement in such things and thrive to see their existence. Would life not be boring if these situations never happened? What do you think of them?
