Kristen Balyeat

Words fly to me on the wind, bump into me as I'm strolling the city, splash me in the face while I rest by the river, and shake me awake in the middle of the night– I’m humbly one of the many vessels they use to come to life.

    Love this one, Kristen! Such an awkward situation when it happens, lol.

  • Omg this was brilliant how many times has this happened to every single person on the planet??

  • Your final words were the ones I always ask under such circumstances. Oddly enough, no one ever seems to be inclined to answer, "Yes."

    Hi - 'K' ~ Just couldn't resist sharing how this popped out a memory: I played the lead (1 performance) in a "King & I" high school production; I still have the program booklet. When the 'Shall we Dance' number came up I got stage-fright-frigid. Never performed again. Come-on that's funny, Kristen. btw; want a Giggle you may relate to? View 'Heartsy' in Humor.

    … and that’s exactly what I’ll say next time this happens to me 😂

    Haha, this is great! Love the addition of the word "oopsie," as I firmly believe these awkward shuffles always bring out the "golly willikers" and its relatives. Well done!

    This is very relatable! Can just picture the embarrassment! But we all do it. I really hate the old someone waving at you embarrassment! (As then you realise it was to someone else behind you). 👋 😆 ☹️

    Haha. This is great, and most surely relatable to most of us.

    Yeah, it can actually go on infinite loop. Cool poem of those corner moments!

  • I remember the day this happened to me 3 times in Walmart on the same day lol 😆I started to grab my bags and run for the door 🏃…
