An Embarrassing Incident

Many of us have memorable incidents which can never be erased from our minds because of their humorous, poignant or embarrassing threads.

As usual, with my well-fed look, I was put in charge of the high tea which would be served on our Sports Day. The event was to be held in the Stadium of Singapore Polytechnic, a stone's throw away from our school, ACS. I decided that after school, instead of driving, I would force myself to walk to the Polytechnic, to study the layout and availability of chairs and tables. On my way, I met a lovely English lady walking her Great Dane. After patting the handsome Great Dane, I asked her if she was going to the vet at Goodwood Road. She nodded her head. Finding her so amiable, I was emboldened to suggest that she should visit the second veterinary down Goodwood Road, as the first one charged a much higher fee. She suddenly burst out laughing, and said, "I am a vet, working at the first Veterinary."

My face turned beetroot! I wished the earth would open up and swallow me in.
I wonder if the lady veterinarian had gone around telling her friends about this incident ? My second sister chided me for being a kaypo (busybody) and warned that one of these days I would get into hot soup.
