Falling In Public. Did Anyone See Me Do That?Okay, I am pretty sure this has happend to at least some of you once at most. Okay. One winter, I was riding a bike. I like to keep in shape. Well, my dumba.ss decided to make a sharp turn on ice. I think you know where I'm going with this. There was a sharp chill in the air and I was eager to get home just to be warm but I had a ways to go. Miscalculating the sharp turn, the front wheel of the bike slips out from under me and I am thrown off to the side. I did not get hurt but my pride was severely wounded. So as I pick my self up, I swivel my head first to the left of me, then to the right, Front and last but not least, the back of me. I had to investigate at all angles just to make sure nobody saw me. My face had become tinged with red from the mixture of being cold and feeling quite embarrase as I was indeed spotted by a car that was behind me. I quickly made my way back to my bike, the front wheel was slightly spining. I bent over, fingers curling around the handle bars, I jerked the bike up, walking it towards a different way to go back home. Sure the trip took a bit longer but come on, I was too embarrassed to stay on the same path I was.
One time I am out of state with a friend. It was an awesome state. I have lots of pictures to prove that. Anyway, every time we walked down the same street, she constantly reminded me, "Watch out for that dip." That was starting to get a bit annoying. At least until she forgot to remind me and I forgot about that same on dip in the road, I missed the damn sidewalk, stepped into the dip and the ground rushed up to meet me face first right in the middle of the street. I quickly picked myself up, and how did I react to such a painful, embarrasing fall? I laughed my a.ss off. Needless to say, my friend was horrified thinking I had finally lost it.
Last night. Yea, that was a lot of fun. I went to a friend's wedding. It was beautiful. Went to the reception which was as beautul as the wedding. I drank a little bit. Not enough to get plastered but enough to not feel it when I hit the ground only to feel it the next day. 11:30 at night I am ready to go home. The kids needed to be put to bed and I was ready to relax. Well, on the way to our car, my five year old is crying because she wanted to stay longer so I decided to try and make her feel better by raining compliments on her. She was a flower girl at their wedding so I was telling her what a good job she did and finally I said, "I am so...." That when I forgot that our car was parked at the bottom of the hill so my feet went out from under me and I landed on my back but that didn't stop me from finishing my compliment so as I the ground, I said, "Proud of you." She started laughing. My other daughter was laughing as well and so was I. My husband asked it I were okay. I told him I wasn't hurt but today I hurt bad. LOL.
