Ok, THAT was awkward.

Creative writing course. Reading out a piece to the group. My piece has a fairly sympathetic female character in it, with a rather less sympathetic male narrator. The final paragraph of the piece, concerning said character?

"I fucked her in the hotel toilets that night, and then flew out on Monday morning and never said goodbye."

Realise after having read this out that completely unconsciously I'd given the female character the same name as the instructor running the course.

Ouch.

(hey, does anyone else in the world still use the LJ 'mood' dropdown selectory thing?)

Sorry, but that is so funny! :D

Man you must have been mortified.

No kidding!

Once I realised, I apologised about thirty times. Even now I've got the urge to email her and apologise again, but the apologising in itself is probably in danger of getting creepy by now!

Sorry, I laughed too. (c:

If it's any consolation, I also had a horribly awkward creative writing experience in high school which involved a prize-winning poem I wrote. Which was about a sex dream. Which my teacher decided to share with the class by way of a transparency on an overhead projector. Did I mention the subject of the poem sat next to me in class? This is actually hilarious in retrospect, but at the time, oh my god. It was like being in a bad movie.

Also, I still use the mood selector, but I'm old-school like that, I guess!

Your HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER read out a SEX DREAM poem in front of CLASS?

Do they give lectures in 'advanced promotion of social awkwardness' in education college over there or something?
