What are "Awkward Pause" stories?

We want to hear your story about an embarrassing moment where you realized something for the first time. Perhaps you said something you shouldn't have, or gave away a secret, or unwittingly informed someone of a looming surprise. Maybe you let it slip that you believed unicorns were real, like in this episode of This American Life. Did you reveal something about your personal life to your parents by mistake, or drunkenly tell your roommate you had a crush on them, or call your boss an obscene name only to turn around and see them standing behind you? We've all had awkward pauses in our lives, what is yours?

Join us on Tuesday, June 27th at 8pm at Tellus360! If you want to tell a story, sign up with Carla once you arrive. Secure your tickets HERE.
