Anyway. I think its really lame when people ignore something really awkward and try to pretend it isn't happening. Are you kidding? You're just asking to get a load of elephant dung slung in your direction. Awkwardness is not fun. For me, its intolerable. Often times, if something really horribly awkward happens, I put my two cents in immediately. I then feel no awkward pressure, and I really wish other people would pipe up about it too.
Thus, its really hard to get me to feel awkward for an extended period of time. I really do apologize to the rest of the world. Maybe my comments just make it worse? I can be careful, and I really try to stay away from pointing out someone else's awkward blunders. I would hate to hurt their feelings or embarrass them. But personally, if I blow a snot bubble and everyone sees it, I'm going to apologize. I'm not going to get embarrassed and pretend it didn't happen. Therefore I befriend that elephant in the room, and am guaranteed safety from flying pee, poo, and feet. Not to mention derrieres. Homies don't crush each other with their giant butts.
