12 Hours

12 Hours. It has been 12 hours now since I was exposed. 12 hours since I was left speechless and uncomfortable. 12 hours since my body literally had no strength to function. 12 Hours since I was forced to ask myself: Who I was? Where was I? How I got there? What was happening?

Trapped. I could not force myself to pull out. Cornered. The suffocating feelings of anxiety enclosed upon my innocent heart. Vulnerable. The much too familiar feeling of QBH washed over my body. For the unaware or naive person, QBH stands for Quivering Butt Hole. QBH is the puckering sensation that occurs when something very awkward, frightening or surprising happens to you. It is a common reaction and everyone has experienced it. If you think you are QBH free, then you are simply denying the truth of physiological reality. Think about your physical reaction to experiences, whether conscious or unconscious, QBH is a part of your life.

The causation of my emotional and mental paralysis was a song. It is fair to say that it was more than a song, more than a melody, more than words: it was a collage of ugly. I was unprepared for the power this song would have upon me. I feel that the world deserves to experience this moment of my life.

12 hours ago Abi chose to express herself. 12 hours ago she chose to render me helpless. 12 hours ago the QBH was constant. 12 hours ago my life changed.

I've managed to go...well, at least a month without hearing that phrase. That phrase which makes even the most un-awkward person feel awkward.

I think I experience QBH when you were being filmed doing that dance move for your Boss. AWKWARD!

Ashley said...

Hmmm. Although I'm missing something here, I still give her props. I wouldn't put myself out there to sing "Happy Birthday" in front of you.

hahaha....QBH....love that you wrote so extensively on that. Except, in my world, it stands for Queasy Butt-Hole. But either works, I guess.

Celestyn- that dance move is my signature move. That is why I was comfortable enough to do it in front of Andy.
Jenni- Queasy or Quivering both describe the puckering motion that occurs during a session of QBH. What a delight it is to have you reading!
Hannah- You may have not used the term for a month, but its daily occurance in your life is evident.

Lee....I don't even know what to say or how to comment. I am rendered speechless....

QBH is real and we've all experienced it! It's the perfect description. And I'm sorry, but your phrase "I could not force myself to pull out." Ya gotta think about that line...that's what he said. hahaha!
