The Big Bust
I had one of those tricky days today. A tricky day is a day that starts off fine. Everything seems to be going well with no problems in sight. This is the trick. You think it's going to be a great day, and then all h-e- double hockey sticks breaks loose. First I got a phone call relaying some disappointing news about one of the girls. I won't divulge the information I received in order to protect the identity of the child(brat) in question. This information had me absolutely beside myself.
I really felt that I needed to go home and handle this situation. However, I had a final exam tonight in one of my classes. So I sent one of my sisters over to my house instead to handle the situation. The test ended up being harder than I expected. That was kind of a bummer.
As I was leaving the school, my foot turned some kind of funny way and everything I was carrying went flying. I hit the pavement and slid a little. I scraped up my knee pretty good, one of my elbows, and the skin on one of my hands. It has been years since I have had scraped knees. I bet I was about twelve the last time I fell down. Four people were witness to my humiliation. I am attaching a picture of the shoe that was the cause of all of this pain and suffering. I considered suing the school, but then realized the shoe was the cause of my little mishap. Ladies...if you own a pair of shoes like these, beware!!! They are dangerous. (That or I am just really clumsy and have absolutely NO business wearing shoes like these)
Since July I have cut both of my thumbs on two separate occasions, burned one of my thumbs trying to light a bottle rocket and now this. I am starting to see a pattern here. I may need to make sure my life insurance is up to date.
