scha·den·freu·de /ˈSHädənˌfroidə/ noun
1. pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune:
I used to have an OK Cupid account. One time I went on a coffee date with a fine gentleman. All was going well, until all of a sudden he presented his pinky and said, “By the way, this isn’t a coke nail, it’s a booger nail”. It was weird, and at the moment I wanted to jump out of my skin. But now I have a story to tell.
And I like telling this story, because people like hearing it. Why? Because at least it didn’t happen to them? The world may never know. That doesn’t change the fact that hearing stories of others disastrous experiences is a gratifying way to spend an evening.
Do you have a fiasco you’d like to share with the world? Did your maid of honor drunkenly hit on your new husband’s father at your reception? Ever farted audibly in a job interview? Got locked out your house naked after an earthquake??? No? Just me? Well, whatever your ‘Disastrous Liaison’, we want to hear it.
Please submit a short paragraph briefly describing a fiasco in your life that you are eager to share via email to either email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org by 4pm on Sunday June 7, 2020.
