Describe Either an Amusing or Unfortunate Incident

1 January 2018

There were many embarrassing times and situations in the primary school since I was very cognitive and restless child. I spent a large portion of my childhood looking through (and sometimes reading) my set of World Book Encyclopedias, which my dad got me as a present for each of my birthday till I was 9 years old. One day, when I was 7, I ran across a picture of a bologna tree.However, I TLD actually read the article about the tree. I was so excited! I knew where there bologna sandwiches came from. If I only knew how this news will embarrass me later! Shortly I had an opportunity to use my “Incredible” knowledge to prove my class that I can be a smart kid.

After we had a discussion In class about unusual things, I decided to give an example of bologna tree and sandwiches. I stood up on front of the class and said: Bologna sandwiches come from bologna tree.

I was really Instant and stubborn that the sandwiches I once had In Italy (l went there with my dance ensemble, when I was 6) grew on the trees! It was so embarrassing and frustrating to find out that it wasn’t actually true. The teacher smiled and said: Don’t worry it’s very amusing. Although my classmate Lena had laughed and stated: It is the stupidest thing I had ever heard. For next couple weeks I didn’t open the encyclopedia and kept my mouth shot during the classes.I just wanted to seem smarter but instead I made a total fool of myself.

Now I think about this story as more humorous one but at that time it was more an awkward story for me than an amusing one. As the time passed I had even more comical stories while I was a kid but this one I remembered very clearly. Eleven years later, I and that girl Elena, are still close friend. She is living reminder of my “historical failure” to seem smarter. Thank heavens she doesn’t ask me climb a bologna tree and make her a sandwich!
