On This Day: Awkward Moments Day

Awkward family photoWalking in on someone using the bathroom, falling down the stairs, breakups – life is full of awkward moments and March 18th is dedicated to recognizing those moments.  So don’t feel bad when you get left hanging on that high-five or you get caught in the middle of a handshake-hug.  Celebrate the awkwardness! It could always be worse – like congratulating someone on their pregnancy, only to find out they’re not pregnant.  Have an awkward day!
