4. What is your most embarrassing memory?

I couldn’t say my “R’s”, I had been at a Belgian public school and switched to an International school in 3rd grade.  I was in ESL and taking speech lessons.  My parents after dinner said to us kids, “Guess what’s for dessert?”  With great excitement, I blurted out “maaaaasss baaaaaas” (we were having “Mars bars” for desert, and that’s when I heard my speech impediment for the first time). 

The next morning I could say my “R’s” ☺
