Sharing your awkward moments with Clorets could win you R3000!

As I draft this post, I am literally thinking about all the awkward moments I’ve had in my life…and I’m letting out a long sigh (I probably should pop a Clorets first)… a breath, probably out of frustration for all the words never spoken. Or the words spoken, that I wish I could take back! I am somebody who is always trying to fill those awkward silent moments. The moments in an elevator, in the kitchen…when we both want to heat up our lunch, so we’re staring at the microwave. In silence. Or an interview, where they ask: Do you have any questions? And you don’t, because you didn’t prepare anything!  The wheels usually start turning, frantically and I think: Say something Simone, something smart, something funny….QUICKLY! Do you ever have those moments?? What if I told you, sharing your story and awkward moments, could win you a cool R3000 with Clorets? How, you ask? Keep reading!

    My most awkward moment @school.When I laughed, I ripped the loudest and most intense fart. The whole class just stopped.”
    My best friend and me were goofing around in the front row of Science class one day. When I laughed, I ripped the loudest and most intense fart. The whole class just stopped. I turned around and looked at the quiet boy who sat behind us and blamed it all on him. Now that awkward! Clorets needed!

    • Simone
