Embarrassing Moment

BACKGROUND: A few years ago while l was at college one of the subjects l was taking was Advanced Construction. As well as learning many other things we had to make a Relief model of a double story house. This cross section showed the house as though it were sliced from the roof to the foundation- showing exactly how the various parts of the house fit together.
I had two male lecturers who shared an office together, Bob and Morton ~ all of these Relief Models had been marked and were piled up in that room ready for us to collect.

THE MOMENT: I am standing talking with the Linda (Head of Design Dept.) and Morton when l suddenly remember that l need to collect my board. I turn to Morton and ask, “So Morton how about you take me into your office and give me that relief?” Linda’s legs are starting to turn to jelly and she is in stitches.
Still momentarily unaware of what l have said, Morton puts his arm around my shoulder and says, “ Well l’ll see what l can do but no promises- ok.”
Arghhh~ it hits home….. l was absolutely mortified but we all had a good giggle about it anyway.

TRUTH: After that l was never quite able to look him straight in the eye.
