Seriously So Embarrassed
Tonight's evening commute started with a bang. One of my coworkers always drops me off at the gas station by the bus stop. Today, I saw the bus pulling through the intersection as my coworker was rolling to a stop. I was out of his truck before he was finished moving.
SMACK! I ran directly into a tree branch.
Then ... SLIRP! My brand new Clark's shoe slid through the mud. I managed not to fall flat on my face.
I nearly died ... of embarrassment. I'm sure the teen librarian saw the whole mishap. The bus driver gave me a long flirtatious lecture which included lines like "I would have waited for you. Not other people but, of course, you." and "Do you roller skate? I roller skate a lot; you have good balance."
Oh, dear! My pride hurts.
