Maybe I Need To Take Ballet December 5, 2010

So last night was not my finest moment.  No, I didn’t make out with some random guy in a parking lot.  I didn’t stick my foot in my mouth either (although I did call some guy pretentious when he insisted on pouring his beer into a wine glass, but that’s besides the point ~ he was an asshole anyway).

Let me give you the setup:  middle of the party & everyone is out on the patio right near the arcadia door.  I am outside clearing wine glasses (what? did you think I was a guest? hell no, I’m the cook – duh).  There is one exceptionally handsome gentleman there that I have admired from afar for years (with some skinny bitch, but I think I could have taken her if push came to shove). 

Anywhoo, here I am carrying wine glasses and I walk inside, plant my foot wrong on the slippery mexican tile and ……… totally wipe out!!! Holy shit!  Not mortifying at all!  Oh, did I mention that it was right on the other side of the arcadia door where everyone was standing so that they had full view of my ass hitting the floor?  For those unfortunate guests who did happen to miss my ‘floor show’, the sound of shattering wine glasses on the tile could have been heard from a block away.

You know what the worst part was?  Who do you think was the 1st one to my side to help me up (with a look of pity in his hottie eyes), yup …….. Hottie McHottie.  Ahhhh, good times!

    This could be a potentially good situation. When you fall as often as I do, you find out who the kind souls are in this world, lol.

    He came to your aide which is waaay better than laughing his as off at you and pointing, which shows is compassionate.

    The other upside is, he will never forget you and when he sees you again, he will ask you if you are okay.

    LOL! I loved this post, because I fall ALL the time. I have at least one good, memorable wipe out every year. It’s to the point where I don’t get hurt (I’ve learned to just let myself go and fall and not brace and stiffen up) and I don’t get embarrased (I fell into a huge disgusting NYC subway puddle in front of quite a crowd without blinking an eye).

    K is correct, he will remember you from now on…

  3. I’m a HUGE clutz Amy ~ forever tripping over nothing walking into lightpoles, ‘missing’ a door and smacking into the jam …. it’s truly comical but rarely (note I never said ‘never’) 😉 wipe out while working. And yes, he will remember me always …… as the clumbsy girl sitting on the floor 🙂

    and ewww about the subway puddle 😉

  4. Wow… there are some glass 1/2 full gals here… I was thinking you should have just skipped work and made out with someone, anyone, in the parking lot.
