I'll tell you what's embarrassing. (I know you didn't ask, but I'm telling you anyway.) It's when the noises your tummy is making (gurgle, gurgle, big-mega gurgle) are louder than the verbal contributions you are making to a meeting at work - and perhaps more interesting.
I'll tell you what else is embarrassing. (Ditto. Ssh.) It's when you can't leave the office because, as you tried to leave, the doorhandle went up the sleeve of your jacket so that you are trapped for a second or two and then ping back into the room.
I'll tell you what else is embarrassing. (Ditto. Will ya leave off?) It's when the phone rings in the office and you are eating a toffee, but you're the only one there to answer, and then it turns out to be someone who wants to talk about important things and not things-to-discuss-while-going-nom-nom-nom.
I'll tell you what else ...
No, okay. I give in. Go back to your newspaper.
