Ask­ing me to re­count my most awk­ward mo­ment ever is rather like ask­ing a duck’s back to re­count its wettest wa­ter ever. Of­ten I’ve brought awk­ward­ness upon my­self by, for ex­am­ple, re­liev­ing my­self from the side of a row­ing boat in plain sight of a river­bank of fam­i­lies. Oth­er­wise, awk­ward­ness has found me, as when I was laughed at by a room of adults for draw­ing a wonky stave on a black­board dur­ing a child­hood gui­tar les­son. Th­ese days, a re­formed yob and non-gui­tarist, I barely reg­is­ter awk­ward­ness at all, en­no­bled as I am by my mor­ti­fy­ing cli­mate as the pen­guin is en­no­bled by cold air.
