Yesterday, I had a painful experience. I fell flat on my face in public. Not just in public, but at an Earth Day celebration in Berkeley. And I didn’t just take a bit of a tumble. No, I did a huge roll followed by a nasty faceplant in the grass. It could have been worse. I could have stumbled on the cement walkway…or I could have been in a crowd where that kind of a landing might have inspired someone to reach for my wallet. As it was, several kind strangers checked on my well-being and a couple even stuck around until Mr. Twistie had managed to haul my distinctly not petite backside off the grass and I had proved I could walk under my own power.
Still, I’m bruised, my nose is badly scraped, and I’m a tidge mortified to have taken a spectacular splat in front of so many people.
In short, I need some giggles. The fastest way I know of to get such giggles is to present all of you with a picture that’s just calling out for a silly caption. You know what to do with it.
Next saturday, when naught but the memories are painful, I’ll declare a winner and there will be much rejoicing.
