Most Embarrassing Moment

I have never felt so embarrassed in my life. It was late spring, and it was scorching hot in Northern California. We fifth graders were at recess at my school. Some were playing four square, while others were playing tag. A small group of us were strolling by the green monkey bars as usual. Then the most awkward moment took place.
