This is a question Out of my depth

As a schoolkid, I signed up for a public speaking contest purely as a ruse to meet girls. It haunts me still: in front of 300 people, I started to speak, dried up, stood there for what felt like half an hour staring at the floor and then slowly walked back to my seat. Oh, and the girl I liked laughed.

Have you ever been utterly, completely, devastatingly out of your depth?

I did that too, on the trampoline. 4 years later and I still can't stand up properly... How difficult can it be to fall on your back and bounce upright again? Quite, if you're me. My socks slipped, I fell on my head, bounced twice, and began to ponder the nature of the series of cracks my spine had just emitted. Then I got dressed and went to Biology. Looking back I wonder if perhaps this was not the best choice in those circumstances.
