Re: Oh $#!t moments...
This "oh sh--" moment pales in comparison with quadraplegia, but -
After seeing a cutie in a workout gym many times and engaging in small talk, I finally got the courage to ask her out for a smoothie. She seemed excited about the prospect. At the smoothie place, things were going well. Then we started dicussing Aikido, and I wanted to demonstrate the sort of things we do. She offered her wrist per my request, and I applied kotegaeshi. I thought I was doing it just enough for her to mildly feel the consequences when she screamed, "Ow! Why did you do that!?" We never went out again and it was just weird between us in the gym from that point onward. Nightmare.
