'Cause I fell on my face this morning.
And it wasn't just a normal, run of the mill fall. It was straight out of the cartoons.
I was carrying a box of 150 DVDs in cardboard sleeves to another building on campus. It had been spitting freezing rain and was pretty miserable. I was thisclose to the building and when crossing the crosswalk, I stepped on a metal plate that covers a drainage area.
Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! The legs started flying. Leaning forward. Leaning backward. Leaning forward again. Then blam! I would have totally face planted if it weren't for the box of DVDs I was holding in front of me.
My knees both hit the concrete. The right way harder than the left. My hands both hit the concrete. Again, the right way harder than the left. (My torso was protected by the box, but the box didn't fair well.) The middle half of both of my pant legs were soaked. AND! PLUS! ALSO! One of the buses was stopped practically across the street letting people on. So I had an audience.
