Spilled Pepsi and Missed Opportunity

November 17th, 2011 by Kevin (Los Angeles, CA)

When I was in elementary school I sat next to this girl and we became friends. We began to talk to each other and helped each other with homework. By the end of elementary school we were good friends. In middle school things started getting more in depth. We had similar classes since we were both pretty smart. We often studied together; we swam in the same swim team and talked to each other even more. At lunch we sat with each other and by the end of middle school we were like brother and sister. In high school we were always just friends and never talked about having relationships but we both knew it was somewhere in the back of our minds. I guess having been friends since we were 8 made it kind of awkward. One day when we were juniors I asked her if she wanted to go see the new Harry Potter with me and she said sure. So we went to the movie and got our popcorn and found a good seat. About half way through the movie I had to go use the restroom but as I was standing up I knocked over my Pepsi on to her and it spilled all over. It was rather embarrassing because the theater was pretty crowded and they all saw us. She felt really embarrassed too and went to the restroom to clean up, but she never came back. I didn’t know where she was and then at school she didn’t talk to me anymore. I heard from a friend that a guy from our school saw with the drink spilled on her and took a picture and was now sending it around. I thought I had a chance with her but my clumsiness just ruined it.
