Oh snap!

I totally tripped walking up the stairs today in Old Main. I was in a hurry (somewhat) to take my first test in my Balancing Work and Family class. The only bad part about tripping up the stairs was that this boy happened to be walking right next to me. I wouldn't have cared if I was alone, but I felt pretty stupid. I bet he laughed inside. I made some ridiculous noise like, "Eeehaaa" No... that's more like a donkey... It was more of a, "Ehhh!" High pitched but soft. Now that I think about it, he may have been wearing ear buds. Maybe he didn't hear me make my ridiculous noise at all. That would be much less embarrassing, but I really was only embarrassed for a second. I composed myself and laughed about it as I continued my trek down the hall. Watching strangers trip makes my day. Maybe I made his. I feel good about that.

Ha ha, the other day I totally tripped up a curb and like kept on falling forward, you know? I ended up hunched over right in front of this kid trying to walk down the sidewalk. I made some noise also, like a little squeal or something and he was like "Whoa, careful." Yeah. I just kept my head down and kept on walking. I hate that. I'm glad you didn't get hurt. :)
