Today you get to celebrate all of those moments you once wished at the time the ground would simply open up and swallow them to oblivion. Why? Because...
National Awkward Moments Day
From walking out of a public toilet realizing you entered the men's room (you are a female) to dragging loose toilet paper attached to the bottom of your shoe as you amble along to realizing you’ve been speaking to someone everyday for a year when you suddenly have no clue of that person's name, life is full of awkward moments. They happen. Without warning, A.W.K.W.A.R.D. strikes! Ouch!
Although there isn’t much information regarding the origins of Awkward Moments Day, many people have commented on how interesting it is that it is the day after St Patrick’s day! Awkward Moments Day can boast a mascot though, the awkward turtle.
So, if anything awkward happens on Awkward Moments Day, be sure to see the humor of the situation and have a good laugh about it—before moving on to the next one!

For me, it has to be when I was still a classroom teacher. It was on a day, of course, when the Assistant Principal entered my room for an unannounced observation. He quietly took a seat and almost fell out of the chair when I calmly instructed the students to take out their 'workshits!' OOPS! I meant to say worksheets! AW-w-w-wKWARD!
