"My embarrassing experience was six years ago at Oxygen. The first day there, I had a little too much to drink and got lost????

I couldn't find my friends and had no idea where my tent was, so I asked a steward for help. He brought me to the First Aid tent, sat me on a chair, gave me some water and told me to stay till I felt better. 

After a few minutes, I looked around and saw that it was a tent full of drunk people or injured people. Being somewhat drunk myself (and obviously, convinced that I was sober), I decided that I did not need to be there. 

Based on nothing whatsoever, I thought they wouldn't let me leave so I had to plan my escape. 

So when I thought nobody was looking I slid off my chair and did my best James Bond style moves to discreetly leave the tent. 

To my despair, my friend had arrived and seen all this. Apparently, my escape wasn't as skilled as I had thought and I looked more like a newborn deer trying to walk for the first time. I have never been let forget this day!"
