On the right foot

I fell down today.

I was sitting in the library, so engrossed in my essay on the fate of Prometheus that I did not realize that my foot had fallen asleep. When I stood to find a printer, I put my weight on my dead foot, and collapsed, arms flailing, across the aisle. I smashed into the boy on the other side of my row, simultaneously crushing him against his desk and mauling nearby backpacks as I struggled to get my lifeless foot to hold my weight.

To their credit, no one in my immediate area burst out laughing.

There's nothing like getting the semester off to a good start.

I just figured out that that picture on your blog is a sock. A weird sock.

Cool. I bet your life is like a sitcom, where things that don't really happen in (other people's) real life actually happen to you.

You should have played it off like you were being flirtations and winked at him, even though that's not the case at all. hehe jk

I'm sorry my friend, but that is funny. Luckily it was years ago so it's not as embarassing. Then again I was the one to let you tumble down all of those stairs. Am I a bad friend?
