What was your most embarrassing Wesleyan moment?

One time I ran into the Plunks and every faculty fellow at Chipotle my sophomore year. This encounter was embarrassing as it was Halloween and I was fully committed to my costume. My costume of course, was the Ghost of George Washington. Naturally, I dressed up in a very conservative ghost costume and powdered wig that hid any shred of my identity. I looked like a little boy and quickly took off my wig for each teacher to greet them.
