"I was meeting my girlfriend's parents for the first time and trying to sound like the nicest little kid ever. They asked about my interests and I said, 'I like singing, dancing, acting, and go-karting.' Their faces dropped and I got a huge lecture about the dangers of go-karting and was warned never to take their daughter near a go-kart , it was sooooo embarrassing."
