Of all the embarrassing things I could have done, why would I do that? It is almost as if I was trying to publically humiliate myself! The way I just stood there, frantically trying to find the right cue card, and when I did, I just had to go and drop them on the floor. As I crouched down to pick them up, the clock still ticking away, I heard a negative comment from the audience.
“Can’t even read off cue cards?”
The audience agreed, murmuring to each other hateful comments.
I dashed out the room, holding back tears.
