One minute, you are walking down the street, having a wonderful, blissful day. You have a smile on your face. Your iPhone is playing your favorite music. There may possibly be a crowd of people around you, but it's not many to keep you from not being able to move around.
You reach the end of a sidewalk and enter the street to go to the next sidewalk. Once again, you think nothing is going to go wrong. You're having a wonderful day. What could possible go wrong?
All of sudden, you raise your foot and the point of your shoe hits the sidewalk. You lose your balance and suddenly find yourself landing onto the concrete. If you have good reflexes, you might be able to prevent this from happening. But there are some people who aren't so lucky.
Once you've fallen down you're instantly thinking about how you're going to recover from it. You stand up, fix yourself up, keep your head up high, and continue walking. You hope no one noticed you because that would be extra embarrassing. You do your best to try and make that tiny moment disappear.
People tell each other all the time that it's noting to embarrass about, especially here in New York.
People trip and fall all the time. It's a part of our culture that we celebrate all the time when it happens to one of us. But in the end, you can't help but think that you have experienced a awkward moment when it comes to you and the sidewalk.
That Awkward Moment hits theaters January 31st. Go see it. I know I will.
