After their first date, comedian and The Talk co-host Aisha Tyler puked all over her high school crush and his car—in broad daylight.
It’s just one of the hilariously embarrassing moments Tyler reveals in her new book, Self-Inflicted Wounds. While mortifying, each experience helped her mature, she said.
“The key is to look at every situation and go, how can I grow from this and also, what kind of awesome story can I tell my friends in the bar tonight over drinks? Everybody hates the guys that’s like, ‘I killed it in the office today’,” said Tyler on Wednesday’s Morning Joe. “Laugh at yourself and grow from it. ”
However, growing from your mistakes is not the same game anymore, said Tyler.
Before Facebook and Twitter, “we didn’t have anybody memorializing all the mistakes we made,” she said. “We were able to just develop in secret. Being young, you’re just an idiot with feet.”
Tyler also shared her advice to tweet in good taste because “the internet is forever.”
“No matter whether you deleted it, when cockroaches are running this planet and they log on to the internet, there will be a picture of your crotch,” joked Tyler.
