American Life Cringe

This American Life is a radio show hosted and produced by Ira Glass.  Show consists of some very interesting life stories. On a long boring drive back from St. Albans we listened to a show with the title 'Cringe' 

I have just had a cringe moment in Southend.. was walking along the prom at the side of a concrete low wall hiding just out of sight under a shady tree was a young girl sitting on the wall holding what i thought was a black long haired puppy,,, oh  a puppy i thought how gorgous and seeing that i was in no particular hurry i decided to say hello. She spied me coming and put the puppy under her jumper.. No way did i even remotely think  ' why the hell is she doing that in this very very hot weather'  - charging forward i say 'OH HOW LOVELY A PUPPY' and Iget near to her and all the time the girl is watching me until I am standing over her and then... HERE'S THE CRINGE, she lift up her jumper to show this very black haired baby at her breast.....  shocked and then cannot believe what came out of my mouth then..  'how lovely a baby congratulations.'.    A BABY CONGRATULATIONS.. oh dear..
