How Awkward Of A Person Are You?
You're not too awkward at all! I bet you're a politician. I bet if you're not a politician, you're going to give birth to one someday. You're the person we all strive to be. But, let's be honest... What's life without those precious awkward moments?
You're super awkward! But aren't we all? Hey, it's OK. We've all had trouble with our basic motor skills from time to time. IT JUST HAPPENS. Just remember: No one's watching. Well, unless they all are. In that case, everyone is watching. Oh no.
WOW. I feel awkward just typing this to a person as awkward as you. Oof. Hey, no worries, though. Everyone is a little awkward, right? You are just way, way more than they are. My advice: Find a stable pair of shoes and commit to the handshake or the fist bump. It'll save you a lot of trouble in the future.
