Yes. When I was in high school, I didn't know what a ukelele was called. Instead I told my mum is was a little bass - of course the man who overheard me must've peed himself laughing. I'm absolutely mortified every time I think about it.
Recently, I had finished teaching a class and was heading to another when the bottom of my right shoe came off. I had to appear in the next class in socks only. When the students asked me what happened to my shoes I told them that I simply just love the feel of the hard floor. When school was dismissed and all the students left to go home, I got the shoe mended before I went on the road to go home.
