Embarrassment: Definition

em·bar·rass·ment (em-bares-ment)

  1. The act or an instance of embarrassing.
  2. The state of being embarrassed.
  3. A source or cause of being embarrassed.
  4. Rushing at a friend and his partner, head down and leading with fists in a Superman-esque flying pose before realising that it's not actually someone you know, quickly walking on past him without turning around but then having your own (legitimate) friend witnessing the whole thing, thus giving you no way of denying or ignoring the fact that such an event had ever occurred.
  5. An overabundance: an embarrassment of choices at a buffet dinner; an embarrassment of riches.
