Most people tend to remember their most cringe-worthy moments in the middle of a hot shower or as they lay their heads down at night. That harrowing feeling is only soothed by the realization that this is all taking place in the solitude of their own mind. But for some, comfort comes from getting up in front of strangers and reading intimate excerpts from their old diaries rather than dwelling on it alone. At Orlando Cringe, normal people share all their sad, weird, funny and dramatic moments of yesteryear – a refreshing experience for those of us who thought we might have to change our name because of all the embarrassing things we’ve done. This Wednesday, a Cringer will go back in time to when they were 15 years old and renouncing the Lord for an unrequited love. Yeah, you’re gonna need a few of their special cocktails to deal with that much cringe.
