Most embarrassing moment: He challenged two soccer players to “soccer tennis” and lost, so he had to skinny dip in Mason Pond. He then got scared and lifted his arms because he forgot he was naked. Also, when he was 13, he was staring at some older girls (year 11s) and walked off of pavement, fell and spilled hot soup on his chest, and laid on the ground, humiliated, while everyone laughed at him as the soup turned cold.
