My BFFs laughed and I’ve been afraid of chickens ever since! Annika Got an embarro story to share? Email totalgirl@nextmedia.com.au with the subject line ‘Totally Embarrassing’. They lost the plot One time at school, I was sitting at my desk trying to reach for my pencil. I bent back too far and I fell and my desk came down with me! There were books everywhere.
