12. When were you last embarrassed?
Kelli: When I had to thank my housekeeper for finding my daughter's toy poop that she'd lost. I never thought I'd say, "thank you for finding Barbie's dog's poop for me."
Nat: Dang. It had to be a few months ago when I was in an online meeting with a bunch of professors and students. I was the lead instructor for the meeting. In short, I had a kid wake up, thought I put my mic on mute (put the recording on pause) and then proceeded to scream for my husband as my child was screaming bloody murder. This went on for a sold 15 seconds before I heard one of the other instructors say "Um, class it sounds like Ms. Long needs a few minutes, lets take a 3 minute break". I. COULD. HAVE. DIED.
