I’m very good at putting myself in embarrassing moments, but there is one moment that I still remember so well, even though I was only 5 or 6 years old. I was extremely shy as a kid. My brother and I were watching a magic show at a shopping centre. Then the magician said he needed a volunteer, but nobody went out of their own. He looked around the audience and said: “You look like a good volunteer” while pointing at me. Going onto that stage was bad enough for me, but he asked me if I could make like a chicken. So there I was standing on stage, clucking like a chicken and moving my arms up and down. He then told me to bend down slightly, and held a mesh bag behind me. His magic trick was that I was laying eggs into the bag. Very embarrassing for me.
