The most embarrassing moment or thing that ever happened to me was: My freshman year we were out to dinner and Annie ordered sushi, as usual. I didn't know what wasabi was so I asked Nikki if it was spicy, and of course, being Nikki, she told me no. She told me if I ate a giant spoonful of it that she'd pay for my dinner, so I did and they took a video of my crying my eyes out and begging for water...but I did get my dinner paid for, plus dessert.
